Not in New York? Try an Alexander Technique Lesson over Skype.
And how about an Alexander Technique gift certificate?
For easier bending, think that your torso is going up when you are bending down.
Enough dressage, now for something more practical.
Up seems pretty obvious when you are standing at your full height, but up is also right in front of you when you bend down. In order to feel lighter when you bend, think that you are going up even when you are bending down. In fact, unless you are falling, you are holding yourself up even when you bend down.
A little more up.
Your Body Is a Spring, my favorite tip.
And something for feeling taller.
