What to expect in a class with Alex
Her teaching is influenced by a blend of styles but her primary focus is on clear alignment and moving with the breath in an upbeat power vinyasa flow. You’ll get a great workout, some groovy tunes and hopefully a little fun and inspiration along the way.
Alex recently completed her 200-hour teacher training with Mighty’s own Liz Heffernan. Originally from Minnesota, she found her way to the Upper Valley for the first time in 2001 by way of Dartmouth College where she earned her bachelor’s degree in economics and government and played Division-1 ice hockey. After graduating she lived in Austria and then Boston before moving to Vermont to pursue her interest in the outdoors and health research at The Dartmouth Institute. Alex began practicing yoga in 2007 training primarily with Michele George and Michele Deslandes. She believes that self-compassion and listening to your own inner wisdom are central to a happy and healthy practice.
We asked Alex
Why do you practice yoga?
For me yoga is a vital component of living a healthy and happy life. When I first came to yoga at age 24 I was a recovering elite athlete who largely treated her body as an inconvenience. Yoga helped to empower me to change the way I operated on a lot of levels—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The transformative potential of yoga is why I practice.
What fuels you?
Good music, blue skies, gratitude and connection.
