Canterbury Yoga & Alexander Technique
Friday August 9 to Sunday August 11.
Price: £220, early bird £200 for booking before 15th of May.
Join David Moore (author of Smart Yoga: Apply the Alexander Technique to Enhance Your Practice, Prevent Injury, and Increase Body Awareness) and Rossella Buono author of “For the Love of Games.”
This Smart Yoga and Alexander Technique workshop consists of 3 days in which we will develop an individualised practice and an understanding of the uniqueness of your own awareness in movement and at rest.
Alexander yoga encompasses a whole way of mindful living.
The practice does not end on the yoga mat, but involves the development of our awareness to how we are living and moving in all aspects of our lives. Besides examining and refining yoga poses we will be looking at everyday activities as simple as walking, standing and sitting.
The workshop will offer an active and practical investigation of:
Coordination and posture from an Alexander Technique perspective
Modifying yoga poses
Deepening observation skills
Identifying and overcoming habits
Doing and non-doing
Developing an individualised practice
