The Mindful Life Practice - your virtual community for intentional, purposeful and balanced living. Est. March 2020.
The Buddha was asked, “What is the most important thing to spiritual practice?” “Spiritual Friendship,” he said.
Hi! Let’s be spiritual friends! My name is Alex McRobert, and I am the creator of the Mindful Life Practice. If you’re someone who wants and needs to cultivate a life with more purpose, intention, and balance, but don’t know where to start and how to become committed to routines and rituals, the Mindful Life Practice is for you. We are an online community of individuals all over the world, brought together by our like-minded interests in yoga, sober curiosity, or wellbeing. Join the MLPC and transform your life - not just with yoga, but with the sense of community and belonging that you’ve always been seeking.
Before I created The Mindful Life Practice, I used to be an International School teacher. I moved to Kuwait at age 23 and I had my first real experience of culture shock. Living in a culture so foreign to me, paired with the fact that I couldn't regularily attend yoga classes, really challenged my mental health. The nearest yoga studio was a one hour drive away, and it wasn't affordable on my teacher's salary. What I truly missed was the community and connection that being part of a yoga studio environment gave me. My well-being routines completely fell apart. While I was still regularly teaching yoga, I had no like minded friends in Kuwait with me that could help keep me on my spiritual path.
I created the MLPC in March 2020 to help others in the same situation. Whether you’re someone who also lives abroad and lacks a local yoga community, someone who regularly travels and can’t develop a consistent routine, or someone who just can’t fit the commute to a yoga studio into their daily life. Maybe you’re someone who wants to practice yoga from home but just can’t seem to cultivate the routine of it independently. Maybe a yoga studio environment intimidates you as a beginner, and the idea of entering a Zoom Room with the camera off feels much more accessible.
The Mindful Life Practice is not just “yoga on youtube” - it’s so much more than that. It’s live yoga teachers living authentically and whole heartedly - that you get to build a relationship with. It’s a community that supports you every day. Ultimately, we’ll be with you wherever you go - and help you establish the tools to meet and greet whatever challenges come your way and wherever the world takes you.
