wants to give his clients space and inspiration for personal growth. He invites the people who come to him to consciously engage with their organism in an easy, relaxed manner, without pressure. He completed his Alexander Technique teacher training with Mary Holland.
Rainer Lehrhuber grew up on a farm. Sports and a passionate exploration of his environment and himself were always a matter of personal importance.
After his schooling and his studies in business administration at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, he worked in the business sector for about 15 years, mainly in the music industry. In addition to his schooling and studies, competitive sport was one of his major interests.
He began to study Alexander Technique, Tai Chi and meditation intensively after sensing that he himself was lacking something. This study has changed and enriched his life in a way he had previously not thought possible. His research naturally led him to the Alexander Technique teacher training, which he completed with Mary Holland.
While he was working on his Alexander Technique teacher training, Rainer Lehrhuber also completed Tai Chi teacher training. His personal interests include meditation and improvised dance.
I am practicing the Alexander Technique as I write these lines.
Rainer Lehrhuber would describe the experience of writing a text like this from the Alexander-Technique perspective as follows:
“I am practicing the Alexander Technique as I write these lines. I can feel the pull of the screen and the keyboard dragging me forwards and downwards. But if I gave into it, my body would become tight, as would my perception and concentration. I know both these tendencies, but I also know the ‘antidote.’
Part of my attention is there in the background, constantly aligning me mentally and physically. I ensure that my neck is loose and that the relation of the head, neck and torso remains dynamic. I feel the contact of my feet with the floor and my sitting bones with the chair. I know that I cannot respond to the pull forwards and downwards with direct muscular actions, that is, I must not instruct myself to sit up straight. Rather, it’s a question of how and where I can let go, so that the desired dynamics are continuously and automatically being renewed.
The alignment of the head, neck and torso is essential. When that happens, my perception is directed to the arms and hands. The arms flow out of the back, and touching the keys is not a grasping movement, but rather the fingers release in a forward motion with each stroke and lengthen. Constantly looking at the screen threatens to freeze my attention. My organism remembers, though, that concentration cannot be a confining, but rather an expanding experience, and is reoriented accordingly ...
While all of this is happening in the background, I continue writing this text.”
