Alexa is a E-RYT500, Raja Yogi, Laughter Leader teaching yoga to beginners and seasoned students since 2010. She was introduced to yoga by a good friend over 20 years ago and her own practice began. She was immediately drawn to that sense of calm, inner peace, and joy that a continuous practice awakened in her. In 2009 she enrolled in a teacher training program to become a certified yoga instructor teaching Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. She never turned back! Since completing her initial certification, Alexa went on to complete other teacher trainings in Chair Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga: The Primary Series, Yin and even Laugha-Yoga! She has also attended various workshops on meditation practice and techniques, and pranayama practice and techniques. Alexa enjoys teaching and introducing people to yoga. Her wish is to share with her students the practice of yoga whether it’s on a mat, sitting in a chair or laughing in hopes that it can bring a sense of joy and peace in their lives as it has done for her and they in turn can spread that joy and peace with others. Alexa also holds an MBA and loves to travel. She resides in Virginia Beach with her husband Chris and their adorable cockapoo Echo.
