MORE ABOUT ALEX ALEXANDER (HE/HIM/HIS)
Alex was first drawn to Yoga by a good friend, Teddie Harrison, in 2014.
“She was in training for her certification and we were her students up in the mezzanine at Harvest Moon Café here in the Romega.” – “ I remember coming out of class feeling like I had the strength and legs of a Clydesdale and told myself, oh we are certainly coming back.”
It wasn’t long before Alex enrolled in his own teacher training program with Springstone Yoga in the winter of 2014 - 2015. By February he had begun instruction with River Dog Paddle Company for their Sup Yoga classes at the YMCA here in town.
“Yoga for me has become a release from past and future. It allows me to sit with the present moment and relax my mind while also strengthening and detoxing the body, which isn’t something we’re trained to do typically. The usual instruction is to remember the past in order to prepare for the future. What I found in Yoga is if we take time to leave our thoughts and instead refine our attention to our breath, we are then gifted with a better state of flow and synchronicity throughout the day. Eventually it clicked that if I would take time to share this with others, that ease and balance would then echo out into our communities. My grandfather always told us to leave things better than we found them, so this is just another way I can honor that intention of one of my greatest mentors.”
