Yoga Alliance believes every human being has the right to practice yoga free from abuse, harassment, and manipulation. We are saddened by public reports of misconduct by Jafar Alexander, with whom we have worked closely, and who is stepping away from teaching yoga. For transparency and accountability, we will not be deleting video workshop replays featuring Jafar at this time; instead, we will be listening to the thoughts of our members on this subject. A statement for deeper context can be found here.


About This Workshop

Join Jafar Alexander as he applies the three principles of "Kriya Yoga," Tapas, Svadhyaya, and Ishvara Pranidhana and sheds light on how to apply them on the mat and in daily life.

About the presenters

Jafar J. Alexander, E-RYT 500, YACEP, C-IAYT, is the Director of Beloved Yoga School. His study of Yoga has made him a multi-dimensional teacher who is able to playfully weave stories with expert sequencing and thoughtful philosophical inquiry all in one asana, making his classes what he likes to call "Yogasanas - Keeping the Yoga in the Asana!" He uses his diverse and comprehensive understanding of the yogic tradition to guide practitioners in individual sessions, group classes, weekend workshops, master classes, and teacher training programs. His energy and presence brings yoga theory to life as he encourages yoginis to find space, allowing for movement, which leads to freedom from attachment. He shares his yoga practice and passion through a connected journey of self-awareness, conscious breath, and physical strength.
