"If you’re new to yoga like I was, you would love the experience gained from Alex. With her great patience and understanding of how your body works she makes it extremely easy to grasp and learn. I joined the class with the hope of feeling relaxed and at peace with myself which is exactly what I got. Alex is very enthusiastic about passing on her passion and knowledge of yoga. I highly recommend."
