David Moore draws on thirty years of teaching to bring fresh and practical insights into how the Alexander Technique can contribute to a safer and more effective yoga practice. With a wealth of illustrations that support the clear, precise explanations, this book offers comprehensive advice in modifying a yoga practice to take into account the huge variability in individual ranges of movement. Moore includes techniques to accommodate limitations imposed by injuries, structure, body type, strength, and flexibility. Smart Yoga offers an explanation of the Alexander Technique's approach to posture and movement, suggestions for altering faulty breathing patterns, and information about how Hatha Yoga, Patanjali, and Buddhist insight practices relate to the Alexander Technique.

Alexander Studies in Melbourne, Australia; worked as the director of said school; and served both as the Chair and as a member of the Australian Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique.
