The BALANCE OF WELL-BEING is happy to announce the issue of FIRST LESSON as a DVD. It includes a special feature - an interview with Mr. Hurt that took place during the original shoot, but has not been released until now.

"The Alexander Technique has helped me to undo knots, unblock energy, and deal with almost paralyzing stage fright."

— William Hurt

FIRST LESSON is an introduction to the Alexander Technique. Renowned stage and screen actor William Hurt joins former Paul Taylor dancer and certified Alexander teacher Jane Kosminsky in a pioneer DVD that shows you how to begin a remarkable voyage of discovery. Goal: to live with greater vitality, energy and exuberance.

For over 100 years the Technique has helped performers to look better, breathe better, move better and even bow better. It is a stress free, absolutely portable (no special place, equipment or costume needed) technique that engages the intelligence of mind and body to take you through a life-changing adventure that people from all walks of life can use. Whether you are a dancer or a doorman, a new mother or a grandmother, a cellist or a botanist, this "secret weapon" can be yours.

The video includes a history of F.M. Alexander and explanations about what the Technique is, why it works, how it works and ways in which a beginner can start to use the principles in a series of daily activities. It also includes a complete self-lesson that you do lying down.
