Why Yoga and the Alexander Technique?

Written by David Moore

There are a couple of questions that I am frequently asked about the relationship between yoga and the Alexander Technique. The first by people, often teachers of the technique, is why on earth should you want to do yoga? Surely the Alexander Technique does not need to be mixed up with yoga and is a complete and satisfactory approach in itself. The second question by people who are not familiar with the technique is,"are the Alexander technique and yoga similar?" By yoga they normally mean the series of postures or asanas, although yoga covers a very wide field indeed.

The advice and coaching from my Alexander teacher during training for a London to Paris bike ride transformed my experience immeasurably and I am pleased to say that I was really able to enjoy the event without suffering as many of my co-participants did. I would urge anyone who is considering any physical challenge and is interested in, or, practising AT to seek some specific AT tips and advice.
