Alex Bauermeister is an ever-learning awareness junkie, who loves helping people find more authenticity, connection, courage, and meaning in their lives. With a focus on therapeutic and trauma-informed yoga, Alex helps clients find relief from tension, stress, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress symptoms to create their own healing and happiness.
Alex has accumulated over one thousand hours of training as a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist, Kripalu and Vinyasa yoga teacher, social change activist, and group facilitator. This is complemented by lifelong apprenticeships in body-based healing and psychology. Alex's background in social justice and anti-racism work bring an understanding of power and privilege to her teaching. She strives to hold a safe space for people from many diverse backgrounds and experiences, including those who don't necessarily have a positive association with yoga and/or therapy.
In addition to teaching public yoga classes, personal growth workshops, and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy training programs around New England, Alex also provides students with one-on-one yoga therapy. You can get in touch with Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org and www.intrayogatherapy.com.
This class is designed to use a combination of breath, meditation, asana, and gentle movement to aid in healthy aging, to gently introduce yoga movement to the body post injury, and for anyone generally looking to introduce gentle yoga movement into their life. Gentle Flow will encourage students to direct their focus inward while practicing accessible standing, seated, and reclined postures that support a connection to the breath, healthy range of motion, balanced nervous system, and greater mind/body awareness. Students will experience less vigor in this class than in other flow classes, while being offered more movement than purely restorative and yin practices.
We hope that students will leave each class feeling grounded and renewed, with a deeper sense of connection to self. All levels and abilities are welcome.
New to yoga, or looking to get back to the basics? Yoga FUNdamentals provides both the beginning student and the seasoned practitioner a place to focus on common postures and transitions, that lay the foundation for Hatha yoga. Classes will focus on alignment and will include imaginative strength building exercises to prepare the muscles for the intensity of the major yoga asanas included in a vinyasa flow class. Expect clear instruction and individual assistance, as well as music to keep the environment light and playful. You don't need to be able to touch your toes in this class… all you need is an open mind & heart.
