Alex was drawn to yoga in her mid life when she was seeking a framework of understanding to support her work as a counsellor. At that time, Kavita was writing a column for the Nanaimo News Bulletin called "The Yogic Way" in which she would highlight aspects of yoga philosophy or asana practice. Intrigued by what Kavita offered, Alex began to study and practice with her.
In 2009, AlAlex chose to take the Red Door Yoga 200 hour Teacher Training to deepen her personal practice. Upon graduation, Kavita invited Alex to join her teaching team. Alex continued with Red Door’s Teacher Training, completing her 500 hour certificate in 2013. It was then in 2015, that Kavita invited Alex to assist in the Red Door Yoga School as a Teacher Trainer.
Alex continues to be an avid student, and appreciates learning from the perspectives of other seekers and teachers from a variety of wisdom traditions. She has always been drawn to movement as a form of self-expression. Alex loves to blend the philosophy of yoga into the classes she teaches at the studio, and to invite her students to explore and play. She feels blessed to part of the Red Door community, and to be given the opportunity to guide and mentor new teachers through the Red Door School.
