Alex attended her first yoga class at the age of 18. While she enjoyed the movement, what really drew her in were the spiritual and mental aspects of the practice. She felt a sense of belonging that she had never experienced before. In 2015, she felt a calling to get her certification. During her 200-hr teacher training at Yoga Yoga in Austin, she found out she was pregnant. While this created some challenges in her practice, she learned the importance of being gentle on the body and modifying the practice to fit the individual. She brings these lessons, as well as all that she has learned, to her Hatha Flow classes - creating a balancing effect to the body, mind and soul. These classes are great for all levels as she believes everyone comes to class at different stages in life and on the mat. Alex's passion for whole body health extends beyond the mat and she incorporates that passion in everyday class. The lessons she learned helped her through a beautiful home birth. She now has a gorgeous, healthy baby girl named Zola. It is her hope that her training and experiences can help you create your own personal zen.
