Are you looking for an inspiring, experiential yoga retreat for a private group? Want to plan a group retreat but leave the planning to someone else?

Sit back, relax, and let us take care of all the research and planning. All you have to do is give us your vision and we'll do the planning for you!

Things to think about:

  • Do you want yoga included? If so, how many times per day (morning, morning and evening?)

  • What style of yoga would you like to do?

  • Do you want to include meditation classes?

  • Do you like a more active week filled with day trips, site-seeing, tastings? Or would you like more time to relax, stay on-site, enjoy spa treatments? Or a balanced combination of both?

  • Do you want to unwind, renew, and not think too much? Or would you like to stimulate your brain, learn something new?


So far, The Mindful Life Practice has held retreats in:

  • United Arab Emirates

  • Mexico

  • Bali

However, we have connections all around the world and as we are building our experience organizing and hosting retreats - we could bring you ANYWHERE!

Just let us know where YOUR dream retreat destination is and we will make it happen!

Styles of Yoga

Alex teaches several different styles of yoga including:

  • Mindful Flow 1:  this is a beginner style yoga practice and includes long holds in postures. It's a slow flow. It can be challenging yet accessible to all levels.

  • Mindful Flow 2: this is an intermediate style Vinyasa flow. Linking movement with breath, breath with movement, and often including some challenging postures and flows.

  • Mindful Empower: Empower is an advanced style practice. Think arm balances and inversions. You can do it!

  • Mindful Flow & Let Go: This is Alex's most popular class style. In this practice Alex will guide you through half of a vinyasa practice and half of a yin practice. You'll walk away balanced and grounded.

  • Mindful Let Go:  This is a yin-styled class.

  • Mindful Sweat: Sweat is inspired by Alex's Barre certification. This is a practice that is set to fun music and includes weight lifting, strengthening and stretching.

  • Meditation: Alex leads guided meditations anywhere from ten minutes to one hour.

About Your Retreat Leader, Alex 

International Yoga Teacher and Coach - Founder of the Mindful Life Practice & Sober Girls Yoga

I am a 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Life Coach, entrepreneur, podcaster, and Ontario Certified Teacher. Since a very young age, I was drawn to yoga as a way to calm my mind and manage an undiagnosed mood disorder. I began practicing yoga daily at the age of eighteen and completed my first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 at Yandara Yoga Institute in Mexico. In 2017, I completed my 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Bali.


Since then, I have taught yoga internationally, in Canada, where I am from, Kuwait, where I lived for two years in my early twenties, and Abu Dhabi, where I called home for five years. I now live in Bali, Indonesia. I have 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 I became sober in 2019, yoga played a key role in my sober journey. In 2020, I founded the Mindful Life Practice Community and Sober Girls 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 I left my career as an elementary school teacher to pursue this passion full time. I am an authorized trainer with Yoga Teacher Central and I lead 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings, 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings, and 30 Hour Trainings certified by the Yoga Alliance. I created the first ever Sober Curious Yoga Teacher Training and also coach and mentor yoga teachers and life coaches to build their businesses. I host yoga retreats internationally, most recently in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Bali, Indonesia and Baja California, Mexico.


I am passionate about the healing powers of yoga - for both mental and physical health -  and sharing these benefits with others. In my free time, Alex plays the guitar, writes, and spends time with her cat, Princess.
