Alexi

Alexi began her yoga journey in 2006 going to classes and practicing at home. Using yoga like a kind of medicine for her own physical ailments but also to cultivate more inner peace and to grow a spiritual practice.

In 2012 Alexi went to India to take her yoga teacher training at the Sivananda ashram in Kerla. She also completed Integral yoga teacher training in Bournemouth in 2015. Integral yoga is the heart of Alexi’s practice.

Her classes include all the elements that make an Integral yoga class so special. Asana  (yoga postures) Pranayama (breathing excercises) Yoga Nidra  (deep relaxation) & Meditation. All these help to create a much more meaningful and useful practice rather than just a physical practice. They benefit all the different aspects that make us human.  Physical, mentally,emotionally and spiritually.
