Alex, born in DC, raised outside Philly, was intrigued by the idea of Yoga for many years before he began his practice. He moved from the east coast to Boulder Colorado for a change of pace and to allow nature to be a bigger part of his life.
After working in a fast paced environment for the Secret Service and Lloyds of London, Yoga became an outlet to quiet his mind and provided space to grow. Yoga at first was a way to exercise but soon became a moving meditation. Alex took his 200hr teacher training with Jason Bowman and his 300hr teacher training with Gina Caputo, both in Boulder CO. Alex has completed various continuing education courses and trainings including Hot Yoga training, Prison Yoga Project Training, Trauma Informed Yoga Training and much more.
Alex is now CEO of Yoga Pod and loves teaching vinyasa flow style classes that incorporate breathing practices, breath to movement flow, stillness and funky music.
Alex believes that the asana practice helps cultivate a deeper dialogue between the mind, body and the spirit and has the ability to generate new energy within, to shine light on the outside world.
