What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a way of learning about how to be comfortable in your own body. Our teachers help you to discover how your habits affect your life, and guide you towards better movement and posture.
By changing how you move as you go about your daily activities, we can help you to resolve long term pain, voice problems, ergonomic problems, and even neurological issues such as Parkinson's Disease and stuttering.
We can also help you to achieve better self awareness, performance and patterns of movement in physical activities. If you practice yoga, play an instrument, sing, dance, act or play a sport; our teachers can help you to perform better by evaluating and improving your habitual movements.

What is Smart Yoga?
Smart Yoga is the application of the Alexander Technique to Yoga. In our classes we pay attention to the way in which people move, rather than how far they move. The emphasis is on identifying dysfunctional movement patterns, on learning to move in a non-habitual and easier manner. To us coordination is more important than flexibility.
All our teachers are qualified Alexander Technique teachers and hold a Certificate in Yoga and Alexander Technique Teaching from the School for F.M. Alexander Studies.
