For many people practising yoga is a wonderful way to increase strength and work on flexibility. It can be energising, calming, and a good way to be physically active.
Some people find yoga postures challenging and difficult to do, due to physical limitations. Some try yoga but don’t continue because they develop pain and injury. People can find that they get some benefits from yoga practise but feel that they want to achieve more and are not sure how to go about it.
The Alexander Technique can be used to improve coordination to make yoga practice safer. It can be used to modify postures to suit the needs of each individual student, including those with pain and injury. And applying the Alexander Technique to yoga helps people to work on improving their overall coordination and posture.
