My name is Alexa, I am a Yoga Instructor and Filmmaker. Over the past few months I have committed myself to exploring, developing and evolving my career as a health and wellness practitioner and I look to you to help fuel my mission forward.
I stepped onto the mat for the first time 8 years ago. What I experienced was that self practice offers us profound opportunities to love and learn about ourselves. After the yoga class I remember feeling an absolute sense of stillness, (for the first time in a long time) and it was then that it became obvious to me that yoga had the ability to teach us how to (re)connect with our happiness.
My bond with yoga strengthened as I learned more about body awareness, balance and weight distribution. This combined with a daily practice of acceptance, patience and kindness not only help correct my scoliosis, but showed me the true power our minds and how much control we have over our own lives. We have an innate power to self-repair and heal and through studying further I will gain the necessary knowledge to understand yoga as a therapy and particularly how to apply these traditional principles to the everyday modern being.
My goal is to create a business where I am to design courses and mentor programs for the videographer and chef who spend hours on their feet to ease the pressure. Or the researcher and writer who are more often than not seated behind their desk and require fresh blood and oxygen flow, and even climbers and musicians hands can benefit greatly from stretches and strengtheners.
