Here are handouts and Autogenic relaxation exercises from the first "lesson" of an eight session Autogenic Training (AT) class. This first "class" concentrates on relaxation of the voluntary muscles of the arms & legs. It is probably sensible to stay with this focus for at least a week or two before moving on to the next exercise in the sequence. Subsequent lessons teach relaxation of several further body systems. Please read the introductory post on Autogenics before starting any of these exercises. If you're hoping to learn AT to help with physical or psychological symptoms, it may be sensible to talk to a health professional first to check on diagnosis and other treatment options. While you're learning these skills, don't practise them if you're driving or operating other dangerous machinery.
