Album Notes
Constructive Rest is a dynamic procedure for rejuvenating your mind and body. It is useful for anyone interested in improving their ongoing relationship with themselves and their environment. Musicians and other performers will especially benefit, because Constructive Rest supports the appropriate state needed for practice, rehearsal and performance.

Also known as Active Rest or Semi-Supine, Constructive Rest is one of the most common procedures of students and teachers of the Alexander Technique. New students practicing at home often find that they forget what to do and wish for the guidance of their teacher. The intention of this audio guide series is to provide gentle words of support to enhance your practice of Constructive Rest.

There are eight primary intentions of Constructive Rest. The Constructive Rest Audio Guide Series is designed to encourage a balanced experience of them all. You will hear detailed description of each Intention in the first track of the album.

Cultivate an Overall Integrated Body Awareness
Encourage Muscular Freedom Now
Facilitate Breathing Integrity
Promote an Accurate, Adequate Body Map
Renew a Healthy Relationship with Space
Think F. M. Alexander’s Directions
Play with the Whispered Ah
Nurture Healthy Non-Doing, also known as Inhibition

There are two versions of a 20-minute guided CR session on the album, one with a North American male voice, the other a British female voice. This is to give you variety and to help keep your CR fresh. CR is meant to help you tune in, not zone out!

This album offers a special focus on practice of the Whispered Ah. Breathing techniques exist in many disciplines like yoga. While useful for certain purposes, many of these techniques you really wouldn't be able to do on an extended basis. The Whispered Ah is a vocal procedure that will help you recover truly natural breathing. The Whispered Ah is not an imposition against nature, rather a directed cooperation with nature's breath.
