The Mindful Life Practice 


This yoga teacher training is certified by the Yoga Alliance. 

Are you a sober or sober-curious woman, wanting to become a yoga teacher? Maybe after becoming alcohol-free, you intuitively know it is the path for you. Perhaps you are not ready to teach yoga, but just simply want to bring spirituality at a greater depth into your sober journey? Or maybe you are a yoga teacher already and want to learn more.

I'm Alexandra McRobert, and I am the founder of the Mindful Life Practice and Sober Girls Yoga. I have been teaching yoga since 2014 and practicing yoga since childhood. Before I started yoga, I struggled with my mental health and mood. Becoming a yoga teacher completely changed my life - it gave me greater purpose, meaning and helped me learn how to live yoga - not just do yoga. Teaching yoga also anchored me through my sober journey. There is so much to learn beyond the Warrior poses - there is history, philosophy, anatomy and ethics of yoga - and when you learn all of this, it can completely change your life.

I started my first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in April 2021. Since then I've graduated over seven different groups of students from around the world, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive!


After getting clear on how I best show-up and serve the sober community, I've realized that my strength lies in creating women's only sober spaces, and I am SO excited that for the first time ever, you can join me for a 200 Hour Sober Girls Yoga Teacher Training! Learn how to become a Registered Yoga Teacher and teach specifically sobriety-focused classes, at the same time.



Here's what my students have to say...

What You Get:

  • Weekly live zoom pods with a small group of maximum ten participants led by a certified Sober Curious Yoga Teacher, for community, connection, empowerment and support (8 Hours of live, Zoom meetings)

"It's really amazing to think that it's only been ten months or so that I have been practicing yoga with @alexmcrobs @themindfullifepractice community. When Alex announced she was now offering the Yoga Teacher Training, I signed up. I am so glad I did - I have learned so much in this first module and I can't wait to continue. I am loving improving my postures but even just as much, expanding my mind through the philosophy of yoga. I am reframing how I look at the world and how I approach every day. This has been a touch year for everyone and I honestly don't know how I would have gotten through it without yoga. I thought I was grounded but this has revealed a whole dimension to my life that I didn't realize I had the power to open. Truly life changing.


Raquel, Costa Rica

"I'm really grateful for the opportunity to join such a lovely group on the YTT. The sense of community is amazing. This root chakra chapter has been a reminder for being rooted, confident and knowing that I have all the power within myself. Alex is a perfect teacher to walk alongside the experience. She is always making us feel safe and inviting us to explore our creativity."

What Our Graduates Say:

“I've struggled with back pain and being overweight for most of my life. I thought that because I don't have the "typical" yoga body,

that this would never work for me. But over the past year, I've learned to LOVE yoga and about all that it can do for the body,

mind, and soul.


And here I am now, having completed the first 25 hours of my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training!!!! Of course, I doubted myself, but I

KNOW that I can do this and I am so excited to share yoga with every BODY. You don't have to have a specific body type or skill set

to be able to do yoga. If I can do it, you can too!" - Emily
