David Moore

Has been specially developed for yoga instructors, Alexander Technique teachers and those who are serious, curious and open-minded about their yoga practice.
Under David Moore's guidance you will find much of interest in working in a new way with familiar or unfamiliar poses. With thirty years of teaching experience in the Alexander Technique and yoga, David brings fresh and practical insights into how the Alexander Technique can contribute to yoga practice. David will invite enquiry from participants and draw on his highly regarded book 'Smart Yoga' during the Retreat. David and Rossella, take into account the wide variability in participants' ability and range of movement, and use these differences a springboard to examine how we might deal intelligently with personal variability.

During the week-long Retreat participants can expect insight into:

Applying the Alexander Technique for safe and effective yoga practice
​Altering poses to suit a wide range of structural issues, body-types, and flexibility
Dealing with pain and injury
How Hatha Yoga, Patanjali, and Buddhist insight practices relate to the Alexander Technique
Bringing the practice into daily life
Balancing the autonomic nervous system
Mindfulness and meditation

Changing habits


The program will be structured to allow for intensive yoga and Alexander Technique work plus two private lessons for each participant over the course of the retreat. In addition it will allow for sufficient time for people to be able to visit and enjoy the surrounding towns and countryside. The program listed below is indicative and may be altered somewhat in consultation with the participants.

The course will start with an afternoon introductory group followed by an evening meal, and will end in the morning on the last day.
