Victoria, AustraliaAustralia Caroline Blackshaw, Smart Yoga teacher and teacher trainer from Yoga Hut in Melbourne, Australia has been teaching yoga for close to 20 years. Over time, Caroline found that there were aspects of her yoga practice, which seemed to be causing injury and she began to seek more information about how to work with the postures in the most beneficial way for each practitioner.
The key to discovering more about yoga, for her, lay in learning the Alexander Technique. Caroline studied with David Moore at the School for F M Alexander Studies, where she found that, by applying the principles of the technique to her yoga practice, she was able to start to enjoy postures she had previously found difficult, find a lightness and ease in her body that had not been available in the past, and that many of her injuries and aches and pains decreased or even went away.
Caroline teaches weekly yoga classes at Yoga Hut in Melbourne, Australia and online, and trains Smart Yoga teacher trainees with David Moore at the School for FM Alexander Studies in Melbourne, Australia and online.
