After years of competing at an international level in gymnastics, and then going on to train as a professional contemporary dancer, Alex found yoga when she began to look for a more sustainable and nurturing way to move, connect and flourish. Growing up in a holistic-minded household, Alex was taken to meditation circles from a young age and was attuned to Reiki I at the age of 14. Alex is now a Reiki Master and alongside her regular yoga classes, teaches workshops and trainings in this magnificent healing modality.
Teaching her first-ever yoga classes in 2014 in Portugal, Alex then continued to move around the world taking her love of yoga and a holistic lifestyle with her to Switzerland and Australia and is now based here in New Zealand. With over 700h of yoga teacher training under her belt in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Tantrik Hatha, Yin, Yoga Nidra and Myofascial Roll & Release technique, and with countless hours of practice and teaching experience, Alex truly embodies and lives by the principles of authentic, heart-driven, empowered and holistic living.
“I’m fascinated by the mind-body-soul-spirit link and how we can move more mindfully through our lives, cultivating a deeper sense of purpose, connection, love, compassion, empowerment and joy. Yoga is such a great system and philosophy to enable us to do this.”
Alex’s classes are strong, but are calming, grounded and authentic.
