Question - sleeping position
I am a musician who enjoyed one to one Alexander lessons for about 8 years (for the last 3 with the wonderful Karen Wentworth). I stopped a while ago and have since developed some bad upper back pain after sleeping. It's been going on for 6 months or so now. I've bought an expensive new mattress and am practicing Alexander Technique and yoga more regularly than I was, which of course helps, but it continues. I'm pretty sure it's to do with awkward sleeping posture. In my Alexander lessons we covered an awful lot of ground, but not sleeping positions! I have trouble falling asleep lying on my back and prefer sleeping on my side, but my spine tends to get twisted like that. What would be the 'Alexander approved' sleeping postures? Advice gratefully received because this is affecting my sleep and thus my entire life!!
