I have been doing the two weeks trial. I have tried 5 of the teachers and absolutely love all of them. It’s an intimate feeling and I love when the teachers care enough to help you!! Definitely getting a package.
An old soul with a young spirit, Alex believes in living life in
the moment, guided by intuition and rooted in compassion. She
fosters a non-dogmatic approach to yoga, movement, and life. Her
classes are creative, mindfully sequenced, and always allow space
for personal exploration and limitations. You can expect to
challenge your mental and physical barriers, smile, and walk away
Growing up as a jazz and ballet dancer, Alex always appreciated
the self-expression and discipline of movement. Though she noticed
many athletes, especially dancers, were injured, even immobilized,
she accepted pain as a natural component of sport. However, in high
school, complications from a peripheral neuropathy made an
aggressive approach to movement unsuccessful. Heartbroken, she gave
up dance and spent years searching for a new form of expression.
When she discovered yoga, she was surprised that her body was
receptive and the poses offered the mental freedom that dance once
had. Breath work eased tension on her nerves, and practicing
non-attachment taught her to seek something deeper than results.
Yoga helped her let go of the fear of falling and the need to be
perfect, ultimately inspiring her to help others overcome their own
fears and weaknesses, on and off the mat.
Alex began teaching in 2011 and has been blessed to study with
incredible teachers, including Bianca Fearon and Liz Arch. She is
an EYT200 and is currently working toward her 300HR advanced
certification under Annie Carpenter (SmartFLOW® Yoga). More
importantly, considers herself a lifelong learner. For her, yoga is
about more than handstands and putting your feet on your head; It
is about connecting mind and body, and that is unique to each
individual. We all come to the mat with different challenges, and
by honoring where we are each day, we grow stronger.
