One to one Yoga lessons with Alexander Technique, in Manor House, Finsbury Park, London N4, N8, N16
I've offered one to one lessons as long as I've been teaching yoga. It's often overlooked as a way of gaining experience in yoga. I've always enjoyed the chance to go into personalised material in more depth and tailor a custom lesson according to need.
I work with supporting you at where you're at, giving you the chance to develop your awareness of movement in general as well as asana in particular.
I've taught a range of students in the one to one format, from people with injuries to other yoga teachers wanting more guidance on the co-ordination and integration aspects of asana work
You will need to wear loose comfortable clothing, I suggest normal work out gear such as jogging pants and t shirt.

Learning yoga or the Alexander technique is something that takes years. These sessions will give you an essential flavour of the work.
Here's what you’ll cover:
- Head / spine: At its best, the Alexander technique is a conversation in elegant simplicity. The key to this simplicity is the relationship between your head and your spine.
- Pelvis / tail: The other end of your spine is your pelvis and tail. Being able to have a centred pelvis makes a huge difference in your co-ordination.
- Legs: How we stand is largely unconscious. We tend to put ourselves in a default position and then switch off, often jumping forward to the future or dwelling in the past. The trouble is, when we do yoga, particularly the standing poses, we have a lot of difficulty in finding the on switch. The result is often forced, trying to impose a shape on a default way of standing then switching off again amidst great strain and effort. This session is about finding ease in standing.
- Arms: Looking at how we can find relaxation in our shoulders and arms. Our shoulders are very complex areas of expression, strength and emotion. We ask a lot from our shoulders, in some ways, more than any other generation. This session is about figuring out how to get easy and relaxed in your shoulders.
- Revision: Looking through each session, mapping out ideas for future exploration.
