YOGA and the Alexander Technique
Do you wish to deepen your yoga practice by developing greater awareness of yourself and your habits of movement and thinking? If so then the Alexander Technique will help you to understand the importance of the spine and the idea of lengthening and widening in your posture. Specific ques and hands-on adjustment will be provided.
Applying the Alexander technique to yoga will not only help you practice yoga in a safe way but it will help you off-the-mat in other areas of your life, from walking to running to how you sit and how you lift an object. In fact these workshops will help you to understand and experience the science of good movement and co-ordination.
These two workshops will be facilitated by Matt Wierzbicki and Maddy Lock. Maddy is a fully qualified and practicing physiotherapist and Alexander Teacher.
