"The experience of body work with Alexandra, like being in a yoga class with her, is that with uncanny
precision she will intuit the need and address it. Each instance is unique and each seems to
emerge as an organic whole. Her credentials are impeccable and diverse – and she seems to draw
from her array of understandings of the body with magically discerning and accurate hands.
Healing occurs on more levels than can be articulated." RG, Writer

"I feel blessed that I was able to work with Alexandra. I have done Pancha Karma in the past and other juice cleanses including raw foods. This cleanse I felt was altogether different. I never felt depleted of
energy, in fact I felt much more energy and clarity from the 1st day onward. I highly recommend this cleanse if you are in search of clarity of mind, getting rid of aches and pains in joints that
never seem to go away, and an overall sense of well being." LL, Yoga Teacher
Private Yoga Instruction
“Avoid future pain” BKS Iyengar
Yoga was originally taught one on one with practices prescribed that addressed the inherent disposition of an individual, their overall health, and the external circumstances of their daily life. Yogis of old knew that one size does not fit all. Postures, meditation, diet, etc., suitable for one person may be weakening or de-stabilizing for another. Whether you are getting started, wanting to establish or move deeper into your practice, or recovering from illness or injury, private instruction offers the support you need.
“After major back surgery, I have you to thank for my full recovery. Your in-depth medical knowledge, helpful selection of recommended healing poses and skillful leadership of your weekly classes have made all the difference in returning my life to vitality and painfree movement. I am grateful for your wisdom, grace, and generosity of spirit.” JH, Business Coach
"You have little time left, and none of it for crap. You must assume responsibility for being here, in this
marvelous world, in this marvelous time. You have everything needed for the extravagant journey
that is your life. " Carlos Castenada
Munay-Ki: Sacred Rites of Healing and Initiation
Coming from the Quero shamans of the high Andes in Peru, these ancient rites meaning "love" and "power" help us to step into the truth and the fullness of who we are by removing longstanding obstacles that prevent our ability to see clearly. They have been gifted to us in the West to help us heal and come back into right relationship with ourselves, each other and with all creation. The rites are gifted in a group setting and on an individual basis.
“The Munay-Ki Rites have given me a set of tools and a compass to help me find my way and guide me forward. In the process of receiving these ancient rites, I started living in the present. Week by week
the encumbrance of my past and anxiety about the future diminished. Rite after rite my connection to nature and gratitude to good and wise people past, present and future deepened. My heart opened.
My senses sharpened. I am more alive than I have ever been.” SM, Systems Specialist
Despacho Ceremonies and Clearings
Personalized, joyous, sacred ceremony and rituals for healing, space clearing, life celebrations, and transitions.
“How do we begin to thank you for the extraordinary despacho and fire ceremony on Turtle Hill? It truly married us, connecting us as husband and wife and held us in a comforting love so divine that our wedding ceremony was a conscious dream of joy and awareness-acutely magical
and precious. Your blessing on the day held every heart and was everything we had hoped for.
Thank you for your divine midwifery.” BD, Graphic Artist
Public Classes, Workshops and Retreats
“Action is movement with intelligence. The world is filled with movement. What the world needs is more conscious movement, more action.” BKS Iyengar
Based in Ayurveda, Iyengar Yoga, Vedic Philosophy and Shamanism, my classes are a seamless weaving together of the principles of alignment and breath awareness explored within the context of the totality of life and our connection to it. I teach a sequential approach to yoga practice that ensures a safe and balanced progression from beginner to advanced student resulting in a strengthening, calming, and inspired experience. My teaching style is clear, uplifting, humorous and compassionate.
"With all of her years of yoga experience, we'd expect Alexandra to be a fine teacher, and she is
certainly that. However, it's the unexpectedly accomplished combination of physical, emotional,
and spiritual components (tempered with warmth and humor, no less!) that elevates her classes.
That balance, so beautiful and effortless, points and guides us all in a direction where we can
envision bringing similar balance to all aspects of our lives, it allows us to unfold
as freely as we choose." AG, Writer
Yoga, Juice Fasting, and Self Healing
"The best of all medicines are resting and fasting." Ben Franklin
Learn how to fast safely and effectively. These retreats have been held twice yearly in the spring and the fall since 2003 and combine juice fasting, restorative yoga and Ayurvedic practices to support you as you detoxify, re-balance and heal. The result is an experience that is positive, long lasting and life enhancing.
“These fasting retreats have been life changing for me. My background is in nutrition and I thought I was doing everything right but I didn’t feel as well as I thought I should. Now I have plenty of energy, more flexibility, lower body fat and I feel 10 years younger. But most importantly, the focus has allowed me to take my spiritual practice to a much deeper level.” RC, Registered Dietician
Restoring the Divine Feminine
“If ever the world sees a time when women shall come together purely for the good of humanity,
it will be a power such as the world has never seen." Matthew Arnold
Rest, restore and reclaim yourself. Since 1999 these retreats have provided women with the time and space needed to reconnect with themselves and that aspect of life which is the essence of things. Balance yourself, heal our world.
“I’ve come home so filled from the women’s retreat. The ease and grace with which you brought the entire weekend together was an inspiration. Thank you for the creativity, your great laugh, the dedication to your practice which just comes through so strongly in your teaching, and your attention and care to each of us in our many moods. Blessings to you.” EF
