About Us

The Melbourne Yoga Centre is Australia’s premier centre for the practice and teaching of Yoga and  Alexander Technique in Melbourne. Alexander Yoga is a subtle and sophisticated application of the Alexander Technique to hatha yoga practice. All the teachers at the centre are qualified Alexander Technique teachers and hold a Certificate in Yoga and Alexander Technique Teaching from the School for F.M. Alexander Studies. They have completed a minimum of three years full time study in gaining this certificate.

Thanks to the specialised training of Alexander Technique teachers and our small class sizes, we can work with an individual, employing yoga postures that work for you.

Alexander Teachers are trained to use their hands to gently guide the student as they work. Habits vary from person to person - we will help you to become aware of your own strengths and weaknesses.

Enhance your Yoga

In these classes we look at the application of the Alexander Technique to this traditional discipline. In particular we pay attention to the way in which people move, rather than how far they move. People bring their habitual faulty patterns of movement to yoga practice, just as they do to every other activity of life. The emphasis in these classes is on identifying dysfunctional movement patterns, on learning to move in a non-habitual and easier manner. To us coordination is more important than flexibility.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is an ancient system of harmonizing and centering mind, body and spirit.

 The yoga postures or asanas were developed in a traditional Indian society, amongst a society without chairs and consequently members of that society were more flexible in cross-legged sitting and squatting.

Rather than trying to get people to force their bodies into the shape of some of the classic yoga postures, we encourage people to move in ways that promote an opening and freedom, without putting pressure on the neck, back or knees, areas that are often injured by people trying to force their bodies into inappropriate movements.

Our Teachers

David Moore

I've been practicing yoga for the past 50 years  and teaching Alexander yoga classes for over 30 years. 

From 1979 - 1981 I spent  two years at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandam with Desikatchar' Krishnamachar. In1984 I did an Iyengar teacher training in Sydney with Martin Jackson

I trained on the first Australian Alexander Teacher training course and I now run a school training teachers of the Alexander Technique.

Teresa Mears

Teresa has been teaching Alexander Yoga for several years. Having experienced the benefits of Alexander Yoga in her recovery from Repetitive Strain Injury, Teresa loves helping others apply the Technique to yoga and enjoy the improvement in ease and range of motion that results. As well as yoga, she enjoys applying the Technique to a wide range of interests including singing, improvisational comedy, and running.

Jana Boronova

Yoga has always been a part of my life.

Some of my favourite childhood memories are of my mother standing on her head in our living room as I was getting ready to go to school.​The fact that a weekly yoga class was a part of the course curriculum at my Alexander Technique teacher training course made me very excited. I love the way the Technique takes my yoga practice to a completely different level.​
