Trying to Understand Oneself

“Gerda Alexander’s Eutony, unlike other techniques, does not set out to make the subject do something which conforms with a model it devises as ideal; its aim is rather that one should try to understand oneself so as to be able to use one’s full potential.

The difficulty of describing Eutony is due to the fact that this experience is not at the level of language, but at the level of the body. Gerda Alexander herself took 20 years before writing about it.”
