If you feel intimidated by big group classes, are recovering from a new or chronic injury, looking for safe alignment, and prefer a non-competitive environment - Alexander Yoga is for you.
Alexander Yoga is a series of specialized yoga lessons based on Alexander principles. It will enlighten your practice from the inside out, and help you develop self-knowledge and poise as the backbone for a safe and rewarding yoga journey.
If you prefer the quiet and attention of private classes, Flora has the expertise to skillfully support you on your way.
Yoga postures can be used as tools to help create space and freedom in mind and body, which in turn makes you feel and think better. Creating that space in your body needs a certain kind of mental awareness, a skillful attentiveness the Alexander Technique beautifully provides.
Alexander Yoga provides you with tools to self-manage tension and habits which can get in the way of real progress and enjoyment. One of the main goals is to learn to keep the natural alignment of the head, neck and spine intact in all asanas, as it is uniquely taught in the Alexander Technique. Not only do the postures provide important discoveries, but also all transitions, entries and exits between asanas.
Clear postural attention, functional integrity and safe alignment just for you.
