Alex has followed a service-oriented path for most of her life and spent many of her formative years traveling and working abroad. Upon graduating from NYU she earned her Yoga Teaching Certification at the Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat Center in the Nilgiri Hills in south India.
Alex continues to study and draw inspiration from the wisdom of her teachers Ally Bogard and Elena Brower, completing Elena’s Art of Attention Advanced Teacher Training in 2013 and Ally's 200-hour immersion in 2017. Alex has also studied Restorative Yoga with Judith Lasater, Iyengar Yoga with Nikki Costello, and Vipassana Meditation with Jill Satterfield.
Alex’s teachings are informed by several yogic traditions and the mind-body-heart connection more broadly. Her classes emphasize structural alignment and subtle-body awareness with heart and spirit threaded thematically throughout. She is committed to teaching in a way that uplifts and transforms.
In her other sacred realm, the kitchen, Alex's approach is simple - to nourish and heal. Her meals are always nutritionally balanced, carefully sourced, and visually beautiful. She completed her professional culinary education at The International Culinary Center in NYC. She was the chef and co-founder of Caravan based in Amagansett, NY
Yoga, food, and the ritual of cooking enrich and feed the spirit. Alex believes in the power of these practices to engender not only individual healing and transformation, but also communal and social change.
