Alexander Technique, Yoga and Meditation Retreat.
Walks, relax and good food in Assisi
June 27 - July 3, 2024
Join David Moore and Rossella Buono for a week of learning and rejuvenation in historic Assisi.

Is open to everyone!
A part of this week has been specially developed for yoga instructors, Alexander Technique teachers and those who are serious, curious and open-minded about their yoga practice. The rest is focused on your use and understanding of the Alexander Technique.
Under David Moore's guidance you will find much of interest in working in a new way with familiar or unfamiliar poses. With a life time of teaching experience in the Alexander Technique and yoga, David brings fresh and practical insights into how the Alexander Technique can contribute to yoga practice. David will invite enquiry from participants and draw on his highly regarded book 'Smart Yoga' during the Retreat.

David and Rossella, take into account the wide variability in participants' ability and range of movement, and use these differences as a springboard to examine how we might deal intelligently with personal variability.

During the week-long Retreat participants can expect insight into:
Applying the Alexander Technique for safe and effective yoga practice
​Altering poses to suit a wide range of structural issues, body-types, and flexibility
Dealing with pain and injury
How Hatha Yoga, Patanjali, and Buddhist insight practices relate to the Alexander Technique
Bringing the practice into daily life
Balancing the autonomic nervous system
Mindfulness and meditation
Changing habits

For those interested, Smart Yoga: Apply the Alexander Technique to Enhance Your Practice, Prevent Injury, and Increase Body Awareness makes a great companion to yoga practice. More than an instruction manual, it is complete with visual examples and offers readers a critical approach to yoga practice. As a guide, Smart Yoga accommodates the needs of people with a diverse range of movement, in terms of injuries, structure, strength and flexibility. It offers comprehensive advice in modifying one's yoga practice.

The program will be structured to allow for intensive yoga and Alexander Technique work plus two private lessons for each participant over the course of the retreat. In addition it will allow for sufficient time for people to be able to visit and enjoy the surrounding towns and countryside. The program listed below is indicative and may be altered somewhat in consultation with the participants.
The course will start with an afternoon introductory group followed by an evening meal, and will end in the morning on the last day.
