Alexander Technique and rowing

Rowing Technique from a Holistic Perspective

I have recently published an e-book entitled Rowing Technique from a Holistic Perspective.

This book considers how to make rowing "easier" on the body with a healthier approach to rowing technique. It explains exactly how to achieve a balanced spine through the rowing stroke. The book is aimed at anyone who has thought a little about rowing and wants more food for thought. It introduces a way of making sense of rowing technique by considering how we best move our bodies.

"...this little book is long overdue in the rowing world in my opinion. Alexander Technique (AT) and to some extent specific-asana yoga focusing on core development have direct application to our form, stroke, AND injury prevention (especially to the spine). AT has been invaluable for me because I came into rowing with severe hip disease. It will not cure severe orthopaedic issues, but it will enable a rower to keep the sport from further damaging problem areas. Thank you, Jonathan, for this clear and easy-to-apply primer." Gary Anderson, Cape Fear Rowing Association, USA.
