"Yoga is an experience, and it is a way of life; it is a personal, intimate practice, giving the practitioner a path from which to experience themselves and their world more fully, more compassionately. The roots of Yoga run deep, and yet the ways in which it has branched out have been beyond anyone's expectations. The practices are certainly alive and evolving as life does, while at their core remains a pure intention: Yoga is a way of being and living that opens the possibility for us to return to our natural state of union with the Truth of who we are, our infinite worth, the original Source of All That Is. "
Alex is a believer in the magic of the heart, and the healing power of movement. She has been teaching yoga as a way of life for 6 years, and practicing for over a decade. She has shared her teachings in the United States, Finland, Germany, and India. After receiving a 200 hr. certification through the Laughing Lotus Yoga Teacher Training in San Francisco where she teaches regularly and co-leads teacher trainings , she went on to study Yoga Therapy through the government of India at Yoga Vidya Gurukul. Her life as a professional dancer has gifted her with extensive practical knowledge of our human anatomy, and a powerful mode of expression, creativity & play, which is the bedrock of her deeply felt and subtle understanding of how to guide others into their own bodies. She became a Reiki Master/Teacher in early 2016, which she holds most high as it continues to share its healing magic with her and all she touches. She believes she is here to create sacred spaces for healing, co-creation & deep self-discovery to take place, for the benefit of all. Alex offers private Reiki and/or yoga sessions & Reiki trainings in the SF Bay Area, hosts annual retreats, and is a teacher of teachers in the field of Yoga.
She is forever grateful to her family in Ohio & Gibraltar, her ancestors known and unknown, her beautiful comrades and collaborators, and all of the teachers and guides that she has met along the path including (but not limited to): Jasmine Tarkeshi, Keith Borden, Ghandar & Kate, Genevieve McClendon, Meisha Bosma, Kathleen Hermesdorf, Alice Tarkeshi, Astrud Castillo, Tekla Kostek, Holly Johnston...and many many more.
