The Art of Breathing & Breathing Coordination
The Art of Breathing is the integration of the writings of F. M. Alexander, “The Breathing Man” and Carl Stough, “Dr. Breath”, by Alexander Technique teacher Jessica Wolf. After graduating from Alexander Technique school, Jessica Wolf started what would be 20 years of working with Carl Stough. Stough, a trained singer and teacher found himself working successfully teaching what he called “breathing coordination” to emphysema patients and athletes, as well as performers. After receiving permission to share his work, Jessica began training Alexander Teachers to integrate Carl Stough’s breathing coordination with F. M. Alexander’s Breathing re-education. Carl Stough stated that “the voice quality is an indication of breath quality”.
