Alexis Andrade

 

As a therapy-based yoga teacher with a passion for accessible dynamic movements, mind-body connection, and breathing techniques. My extensive background in athletics and clinical programming has given me a deep appreciation for proper alignment and movement mechanics, which I prioritize in all of my yoga classes. I believe that yoga has the power to transform both the body and the mind, and I am committed to sharing this transformative practice with my students. 

 

I am committed to facilitating an inclusive space for all genders, ages and experience levels. While most of my friends know me for my athletic intensity, I love to teach gentle and restorative yoga classes that provide nourishment and balance. My spirited side also is dedicated to teaching our youngest yogi’s in family friendly classes like kids yoga, pre and post-natal classes.

As I continuously study yoga, my philosophy is that it is a lifestyle which adheres to morals embodied in daily life. I began my yoga journey in childhood, later introducing the practices of meditation and asana to my high school peers, and subsequently deepening my practice by more regularly attending public classes.

 

Later, I completed my 200-hour teacher training with Yoga Garden SF. Embodying yogic morals in my life manifests in my activism and awareness of human and nonhuman suffering. Through my offerings, I hope to empower and help others to see their beauty, strength, and intelligence, while honoring and caring for themselves throughout their practice.
