Directed Activities

Author/Editor: Gerard Grennell

A directed activity (or ""game"") is the Technique applied to a simple, usually small, movement which is intended to encourage length and expansion of the whole organism. This is a facsimile of the diary which Grennell kept during his training with the Carringtons. Each page describes one activity with line drawings and handwritten text. Among the activities described are Alexander’s procedures as well as activities such as walking, writing, taking a pupil’s head, lifting a chair, going up stairs, taking a pupil’s arm and hand, and freeing the ankles. The foreword describes the means whereby the activities were practiced at the Carringtons.
