Parallel to an international career in dance, Alexandra has practiced Yoga for two decades. She studies Shadow Yoga regularly with Shandor Remete, Emma Balnaves and Alexandra Gilbert and holds diplomas in both Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga, as well as Yoga for Maternity and birth. Her extensive experience in the realm of movement and her warm and sensitive approach to teaching cultivate clarity, awareness, grace and wellbeing. When Alexandra is not teaching she can be found gathering wildflowers, infusing elixirs under the moon and watching over her three young children as they climb in the trees and build forest cabins. She is currently studying Traditional Chinese Medicine at Centre Ling Dao in Switzerland, with a view to practising acupressure and acupuncture in the not too distant future.
