• An Examined Life

A fascinating memoir, in interview form, on the life and thoughts of Marjory Barlow.

Marjory Barlow grew up with the Alexander Technique, and the Alexander Technique grew up with her. She started daily lessons on her 17th birthday with her uncle F.M. Alexander, and joined his teacher training course a year later. She was 21 when she qualified as a teacher of the Alexander Technique and she stayed on as her uncle's assistant for a further four years. She ran her own training course from 1950 until the 1980s.


An Examined Life is Marjory's opportunity to gather and share the unique experiences of her seven-decade career. An Examined Life is a beautifully designed hardcover edition. It includes Appendices with Marjory Barlow's two Memorial lectures, as well as stories and aphorisms collected by several teachers trained by her.
