I have had the deep pleasure of knowing Yoga Teacher, Alexandra (Alex) for a number of years, both professionally and personally. In her capacity as a teacher of yoga, I am aware that she is one of the mostly highly and authentically trained teachers in the land. We have had the privilege of her being a guest teacher of yoga on many occasions to large groups of meditation students who attend our Silent Sunday retreats at The Meditation Sanctuary in Sydney. Invariably, the many comments made to me later have been that their ‘yoga experiences’ with Alex were ‘expert, gentle and joyful’. They are the very words I would use to describe Alex personally – expert, gentle and joyful. She is a rare gift to the art of yoga and those lucky enough to be taught by her can regard themselves as privileged indeed.
