Alexandra is a dancer, yogini, mama and wife who has dedicated her path to the practice and embodiment of Yoga, well beyond the execution of postures on a mat. Though the grace and beauty of embodied prayer through asana is indeed a fundamental part of her path, for her, Yoga must eventually filter into each and every aspect of our lives, from the way we take care of ourselves on a day to day basis, to the way we communicate with others and make important choices and decisions in life.

Alexandra teaches Soma Yoga, Shadow Yoga and Ten Moon Yoga in Switzerland an co-hosts retreats in both Europe and Australia.

She is currently studying Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Centre Ling Dao in Switzerland.
