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. In her free time, Alex plays the guitar, writes, and spends time with her cat, Princess.
