What people are saying about David Moore
"I have now been working as a yoga teacher for almost ten years and I have had the pleasure to work with many differently bodied people, including lots of people in chronic pain. I have seen the wonders that yoga has done in gently untying the emotional, physical and mental knots that people's lives, habits, choices and luck have created. I am and will be forever grateful to yoga's incredible transformative power. And yet, sometimes in my teachings, I would feel stuck in giving the right advice to students with certain deeply ingrained physical habits of coordination. My yoga teacher training did not prepare me for that level of analysis. Last July, I had the pleasure to host David Moore and Rossella Buono, in a six hour workshop at our studio in English Yoga Berlin. They brought the Alexander Technique into yoga and into my life. They provided me with the missing link" - Pinelopi -teacher at English Yoga Berlin
I have lived with chronic pain for many years and this yoga has helped me so much. Each teacher has adapted poses for my needs and taught me how to tune into the needs of my own body. Can't thank David and the other teachers enough, - Mardi Thorpe - yoga student, Melbourne
Great yoga teachings, learning to perform the moves and stretches in keeping with the design of the body, and how we're meant to move. Love it! - Helene Goldberg - Alexander teacher in Melbourne
What people are saying about the book "Smart Yoga"
Smart Yoga is a useful guidebook on navigating the Alexander Technique with yoga practices. The book is filled with diagrams and photos throughout to complement the text.
The book explores tadasana, floor stretches, squatting poses, standing poses, twists, forward bends, backbends, hip openers, inverted poses and plank variations in great depth. I would recommend the book to anyone curious about the Alexander Technique and wanting to go into more details on the principles underpinning the methods as it relates to various yoga poses.
It’s great to get another layer of perspective applied to poses, especially in preventing injury and building greater body awareness. I found the background and development of the Alexander Technique fascinating and can see how it would complement yoga practice. - from Yoga Today, the magazine of Yoga Australia
"This book is a must-read for modern day yogis searching for optimum coordination in poses to help them avoid the trap of trying to do yoga poses in a way that reinforces harmful patterns of thinking and movement" - From Amsat News - magazine of American Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique. - Suzanne Faulkener
