Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

his will be a hands-on workshop looking at the application of the Alexander Technique to yoga practice. The approach taken in the workshop is outlined in David's book Smart Yoga: Apply the Alexander Technique to Enhance Your Practice, Prevent Injury and Increase Body Awareness"

​This course will look at the application of the Alexander technique to participants everyday posture and movement and then use this learning as the basis for applying the technique to yoga poses. We will examine the type of poses which work for individual participants, we will look at participants habitual patterns of posture and movement with special focus on identifying and changing those patterns which cause strain and distress in everyday life and which may also be taken into the practice of yoga.

Yoga as traditionally taught was, like the Alexander Technique, a practice focused on and developed around the particular needs of each individual student. This was a very different approach to that taken in classes which are frequently taught today where everybody follows the lead of a teacher in going through a series of yoga poses regardless of the usefulness (or harm) of those poses for the individual members of the class and frequently regardless of how people are doing those poses.
