Our Yoga Style
The Yoga taught at Alexander Education is the 8 limb Yoga or Classical Yoga of Patanjali. The postures practiced are derived from Traditional Hatha Yoga postures. However, classes are led by the philosophy of Yoga combined with Alexander Technique. The emphasis is upon the use of a conscious mind to achieve freedom in postures through the cultivation of accurate self awareness and kinesthetic awareness. Alexander called this "Good Use".
The posture practice is also influenced by the work of Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar. Many postures are modified to suit the individual. We also use flowing sequences or vinyasas to stimulate the body and mind in particular ways.
Personal Yoga Programs and Tuition
We are happy to work with you privately on your Yoga. We can tailor a Yoga program to suit your needs. We consult regularly with our Yoga students on any areas they may need extra input or clarification. We are happy to design modifications to the standard classes to better suit your situation.
The cost of a private yoga consultation is $90 or $80 if you are a currently enrolled yoga student seeking extra input into your practice.
