“She challenged my perspective from the first down dog by saying ‘if you drilled a hole through Earth from this location you would be (somewhere across the globe)’. Total wow moment. I knew I had to follow her to Yoga Deza in 2013, because each class of hers I experienced a “wow” moment – either physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Alex was constantly teaching me, which I later learned because she was constantly learning and growing. Each opportunity to learn more from her I did, in baby steps, first with the 40 days journey, and little moments in trainings. Eventually I signed up for my first teacher training with Alex, and continued studying with her in forms of more trainings, leadership programs, and even as a training assistant. What makes Alexandria such an inspiration and teacher to me is her dedication to be a student – always learning and open to new experiences. She has of course taught me how to instruct a class and the anatomy of the hip, but more importantly she has shown through example how to be dedicated to the practice, her family, teaching, and taking a stand for her truth.” – Tayler P.
