Alexander Technique promotes well-being by retraining our awareness and habits of posture to enable minimum effort and strain. Hatha Yoga is an ancient system seeking union between mind and body, individual and the universe. Both traditions honour the innate wisdom of the human body.

What they say

"Tanya's hands-on encouragement to get me to adjust my posture when in certain poses felt gently reassuring. This, together with Chris's wonderfully mindful yoga teaching were literally a tonic. I loved the emphasis on relaxing into poses rather than forcing the body to stretch beyond its limits." Gill Tunstall

"Truly brilliant. I feel I have learnt so much. The attention to detail has really helped me understand what yoga can be and helped me start to feel in touch with my body, which I haven’t felt for years. Thank you hugely.Kate Byron

"I learnt a lot, reconnected with my body and relaxed. Very many thanks and hope to see you again." Anouska Madden
