Alex has always been active—swimming, running, hiking, kayaking—and has been practicing yoga for 9 years. She is RYT-200 certified and teaches a range of yoga styles. Alex’s teaching philosophy is that yoga really is, and can be, for everyone and that a regular yoga practice can promote and improve many aspects of physical and mental health across the life course. But she recognizes that every person has different needs from yoga and each body is anatomically unique. With these concepts in mind, Alex’s goal is to create yoga classes that are invigorating, empowering, and enlivening for body and soul. She pays special attention to building awareness about breathing and bodily alignment to ensure a safe, strong, balanced, and mindful practice.
Alex lives, works, and plays with friends, family, and her dogs in Snoqualmie. A graduate of the University of Edinburgh she has her PhD in medical sociology and a background as a researcher and writer of education materials for healthcare professionals. She has been teaching adults in higher and continuing education settings for many years, and, prior to teaching, she was a trauma and orthopedics operating room nurse in a regional trauma center in Scotland
