Alex previously went on a Healthy Options holiday as a guest in 2015 and enjoyed it so much she set herself the goal to work for us one day. 2022 will be her 6th season with us and she couldn’t be happier to continue her journey with us, Alex now lives most of the year in Vassiliki!
Alex’s teaching style is fun and naturally flowing. She combines her knowledge of anatomy and the breath to create a safe space to practice in and give her students the opportunity to explore the mental and the physical aspects of Yoga.
“I enjoy creating a balance of calmness and power when I teach and I allow my dance background to influence my classes in part. I want my students to leave feeling energised and happy!”
Alex’s sessions include emphasis on breath, energy, flow, anatomy, alignment and relaxation; postures which will invigorate the physical and mental being, leaving you with a general sense of change, growth and wellness.
Yoga Teacher - Vassiliki
I’ve always been a free spirit and have been travelling around the world for the last 9 years to experience different cultures, broaden my horizon and follow my hospitality career. About 4 years ago in New Zealand Yoga came into my life when I needed it the most and it has given me a whole new quality of physical and mental well-being.
Yoga became part of my daily routine after years of self-practice: helping me grow, heal and connect to myself on a deeper level of self-love and understanding. I caught my passion and love for teaching on my spiritual journey while living in Costa Rica and got certified at the magical lake of Atitlan in Guatemala with a RYT 200hr training. This experience has truly changed my perspective and I have been following my calling ever since.
I love to be creative with my classes and workshops which include pranayama, mindfulness, spirituality, alignment and fun free movement exercises to allow everyone to intuitively connect to their unique body and mind. My specialties are Yin & Yang, Hatha and different styles of Vinyasa flow, like power and intuitive Vinyasa. I also enjoy guiding restorative meditations and journeys to balance the flow with stillness.
My goal as a teacher is to help my students connect with their body and soul on a deeper energetic level, to pass on the practice of mindfulness and to have everyone leave their class feeling happy, liberated and empowered.
As almost all of our available spaces in July and August this summer are already filled up, we have taken the decision to open up our 2023 summer season room charts rather earlier than normal.Read on
