Alex is a 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Life Coach, entrepreneur, podcaster, and Ontario Certified Teacher. Since a very young age, she was drawn to yoga as a way to calm her mind and manage an undiagnosed mood disorder. She began practicing yoga daily at the age of eighteen and completed her first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 at Yandara Yoga Institute in Mexico. In 2017, she completed her 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Zuna Yoga in Bali. Since then, she has taught yoga internationally, in Canada, where she is from, Kuwait, where she lived for two years in her early twenties, and Abu Dhabi, where she's called home for five years. Alex has participated in several additional trainings, including Yoga Workshop Design for Teachers with Rolf Gates, Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga, Yoga for Kids and Trauma Informed Yoga.
When Alex became sober in 2019, yoga played a key role in her sober journey. In 2020, Alex founded the Mindful Life Practice Community and Sober Curious Yoga, an online yoga community with participants from all over the world who are changing their relationship with alcohol using mindfulness techniques such as yoga, meditation, community and journalling. In 2021 Alex left her career as an elementary school teacher to pursue this passion full time. Alex is an authorized trainer with Yoga Teacher Central and leads 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings certified by the Yoga Alliance. She created the first ever Sober Curious Yoga Teacher Training and also coaches and mentors yoga teachers and life coaches to build their businesses.
Alex is passionate about the healing powers of yoga - for both mental and physical health - and sharing these benefits with others. Alex now splits her time between Bali, Indonesia and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. In her free time, Alex plays the guitar, writes, and spends time with her cat, Princess.

What People Say
I've been having life coaching sessions with Alex and they have been an extremely positive experience. Since I went sober over three months ago, I've been navigating a new life of better sleep, better exercise, better moods and feeling brilliant about life. However, with this new life for me has come increased ambition in my life around what I feel I can achieve. This is where Alex has been transformative for me. In just a few sessions she has totally grasped what I am trying to achieve. She is able to let me speak and then absolutely grasp the essential parts of what I am saying and thinking. She has provoked thoughts and ideas what I am then able to take on with me in the days ahead. Alex gets to know you in a way that she can help. She is funny and caring all in one, and easy to speak to and say exactly what I'm thinking, whatever the challenges. Her meditative, spiritual, and worldly views only enhance the experience. The fact that she has gone through a similar sober journey only adds to what she can offer. I always look forward to our chats, because I know I will come out of them able to face the world more clearly.
