WHO IS ALEX?: Hi! I’m Alex. I love being embodied and having my
mind changed and challenged, and yoga gives me both of these things.
My practice has helped me develop a greater confidence in myself
knowing that I have techniques to help me traverse life with skill, grace,
My classes are inspired by Katonah Yoga, Hatha, Vinyasa sequencing,
Chinese Medicine, nature, literature, and – most importantly–joy!
I believe that blending techniques and approaches helps potentiate
communal understanding and well-being. I have been teaching yoga
for 12 years and understand teaching as an ever-evolving artform that
develops in tandem with our humanity. Teaching is the area in which I
challenge myself most, but where I see myself clearest.
