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. Her intention whist teaching is to create a sacred space in which each person can experience their own inner wisdom and intuitive intelligence. When Alexandra is not teaching she can be found crafting therapeutic oils, vibrational essences and herbal blends, watching over her three young children, or studying Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Alexandra teaches Soma Yoga, Shadow Yoga and Ten Moon Yoga in Switzerland an co-hosts retreats in both Europe and Australia.
