Yoga and Alexander Technique for Seniors
with David Moore (author of Smart Yoga: Apply the Alexander Technique to Enhance Your Practice, Prevent Injury, and Increase Body Awareness)
Friday, October 20th 2018
10 am to 11:30 am
This class is offered annually as a part of the Victoria Seniors Festival. David Moore the director of the School for FM Alexander Studies and Melbourne Yoga Centre has been teaching Alexander Technique and its application to Yoga for over 30 years. In this class we look at the application of the Alexander Technique to the traditional discipline of Hatha Yoga with a special emphasis on working with older students.
We pay attention to the way in which people move, rather than how far they move. People bring their habitual faulty patterns of movement to yoga practice, just as they do to every other activity of life. In this class we help you to identify dysfunctional movement patterns and learn to move with more ease. To us coordination is more important than flexibility.
