"Alex's unique instructor mentoring philosophy and course help our Coaches grow as individuals and excel as a collaborative team. Nowhere is it more apparent than simply hearing our Coaches continue to speak about how they incorporate his ideas, or continue to think about the lessons he led, long after working with Alex. As the Head Coach, I've be delighted with direct changes: new Coaches finding their own unique voice, experienced Coaches expanding their horizon, and everyone to better connecting with our members and each other.
Our Yoga is different than those of the traditional poses -- we lift weights, throw med balls, crawl, roll and swing from gymnastic rings! However, the beauty of his approach is that the learning extends well beyond the yoga mat. Well beyond fitness and movement. I recommend sessions with Alex if you are looking to inspire and ignite any team that's dedicated to delivering a service with more passion and poise."

"Doing private yoga and mindfulness with Alex has been my most fulfilling experience with yoga and meditation practice. His deep understanding of the differences between being and doing and patient, supportive inquisitiveness led me to my first glimpse of my own true nature - I've been striving to get back there ever since! All I have read and studied of spiritual teachers has supported what a lucky gift it was to find Alex and have his help in using yoga and meditation practice to break through the shell of thoughts so many in our culture have constructed and to feel the essence of the mind and spirit. Not to mention his knowledge of anatomy and yoga poses really helped with learning how I could compassionately address my long standing back pain. There are a million yoga teachers saying they know the deal these days, and few do - Alex is the real thing." – JC
"Alex is an amazing yoga instructor. He is patient, attentive, knowledgeable and fun. He was very flexible and even welcomed my husband into our sessions. Alex has a strong understanding of anatomy (which impressed my husband who is an orthopedic surgeon). Most importantly, Alex has a really positive spirit that makes every session enjoyable. I first met Alex about 2 months after I had my daughter. I really wanted to start practicing yoga again and looked for private sessions so I could start off slowly. He understood where I was at physically and slowly worked with me until I surpassed my pre-pregnancy fitness. I never felt like he was pushing me too hard but we definitely made a lot of progress. Definitely the best yoga sessions I've had." -BC
"I have to thank you [Alex] for getting me
safely and comfortably practicing yoga. I realize you
must have researched poses and adaptations to
suit my needs. It made so much difference to me,
to practice a pose the way you showed me and with
your support, as compared to a method from a book.
That gave me confidence to practice regularly and
an awareness of alignment to carry into other poses.
I feel so much stronger and able to get through most
days with my back pain under control." – KB
"Alex has played an essential role in my yoga
practice from the very beginning and continues to
inspire my journey. As an instructor he blends precise
anatomical alignment with a deep understanding of
yogic philosophy. Alex has also served as a mentor
since completing my RYT200. His ability to hold
space while encouraging personal reflection has
empowered greater authenticity in my teaching." – AD
"I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed working with Alex. He helped to keep both my body and mind strong during my treatment for Thyroid Cancer. Our weekly yoga sessions were able to regulate my body's hormone production, which I had not been able achieve with standard medication. I was also blessed to have Alex introduce me to the powers of Reiki. I went in a skeptic, but after just one session the extreme nausea and overall imbalance I felt post-surgery was gone. Alex is truly a special person, just being around him can make a person feel more relaxed and centered." -MH
I came to Alex during a time in which I was in pain--physically and emotionally in the form of chronic migraine headaches and anxiety. Honestly, after trying other healing modalities including conventional medicine, I felt desperate and so ready for a shift. Words cannot describe the feelings of relief and safety I experienced during my first session with Alex. Alex is intuitive and compassionate and a gifted yoga instructor who can see the root cause of his client's symptoms and develop a plan for healing. He took the time to get to know my story in addition to my symptoms. I felt heard, seen, and understood. Alex showed me specific yoga poses to relax and open the muscles that were chronically tight from years of headaches and meditation techniques to relax my thinking mind. He also incorporated the teachings of yoga to guide me to reinterpret the anxiety I was experiencing in a way in which I wasn't the victim and in which everything felt peaceful and OK. I highly recommend working with Alex to people of all abilities as Alex has a keen ability to meet you wherever you are at on your journey. You will be in the best of hands.
