Alex first discovered yoga at drama school as a stiff and hectic 18 year old. Encouraged to take classes to reconnect to her body and breath, she loved the movement and the way it made her feel. Several years later Alex found herself working as a broker in the City of London and a self-confessed sweat addict. Chasing weights, doing tough mudders, dancing all night and working all day. Her casual hobby soon turned into a much needed time out in her week.
After 13 years of personal practice Alex took her teacher training in 2015 at the Sivananda Ashram in Austria. Using their teachings as the backbone for her classes, Alex combines her love of movement and relaxation to bring you simple sequences of body opening postures, mind focussing breath work and deep meditation. Prepare to be physically challenged and mentally relaxed! Still balancing a full-time city job with keeping fit and teaching, Alex is no stranger to the burnout faced by Londoners today. Finding ways to destress has led her to become a Thai Yoga Masseur and Yoga Nidra practitioner. Studying with the renowned Ralf Marzen and David Lutt in London and Thailand, Alex offers deeply relaxing Thai Massage using classic, dynamic and osteothai techniques. She trained in Yoga Nidra at the Satyananda Centre in London.
Alex is loving her new life in Forest gate and can often be found prancing on The Wanstead Flats. A continual student of moving bodies and stilling minds, she is looking forward to meeting fellow yogis in the community.
