“Yoga is a great tool to overcome limits, expand self-knowledge, stimulate love and provide acceptance on the mat and in our own lives”.
An old soul with a young spirit, Alex believes in living life in the moment, guided by intuition, and rooted in compassion.Years of ballet and jazz dance helped Alex appreciate the self-expression and discipline of movement. While she began to notice how many athletes, and especially dancers, were injured, even immobilized, she accepted pain as a natural component of sport. However, in her teens, complications from a peripheral neuropathy made an aggressive approach to movement unsuccessful for Alex. Heartbroken, she gave up on ballet and spent years searching for a new form of expression. Then, one day, the stars aligned when she wandered into a hot vinyasa yoga class to prove to a friend that yoga wasn't for her. To her surprise, she was blown away not only by how hard she worked, but by how centered and clear she felt after. The heat eased the tension on her nerves, and the fluid movement brought back the expression that dance had once offered. In time, her mat became the one place she felt herself, and it became clear that yoga could be healing on so many levels. Yoga helped her overcome the fear of falling and let go of the need to be perfect. As a teacher, she loves helping others overcome their own fears and weaknesses. She began teaching a hot vinyasa flow class at Malibu Hot Yoga in 2011 and did her 200HR Power Yoga certification under Bianca Fearon at Hot 8 Yoga in 2013.
"For me, yoga is about more than standing on your hands or bending you head back to your toes. It is about connecting mind and body, and that's unique to each individual. We all come to the mat with different energies and challenges, and by honoring where we are each day, we grow stronger. We break through barriers we don't even know we have." She respects that no two bodies are the same. She encourages ahimsa (compassion) and mindfulness- listening to your body and modifying postures. But don't think that means you won't leave her class sweaty and smiling. "Ten years ago, I would've laughed at yoga. Five years ago, I would've said I couldn't do it. Now I wholeheartedly believe that anyone who says they can't do yoga just hasn't found the right practice or teacher for them."
