Yogi Of The Week: Alexander

Meet Alexander.

He believes the key to overcoming trauma is presence. When you tune in with your surroundings, resonate with what others are feeling and trust the human potential for change, crisis becomes an opportunity for growth.

Alexander teaches yoga to troubled youth, using it as a tool to help people heal from childhood trauma. He sees firsthand the moment healing begins to take hold in his students – when their practice brings deep resonating peace. These moments are his most memorable.

Yoga is also his way of decompressing from the challenges of managing his students' traumas and troubles (and managing his own arthritis). For Alexander, yoga has moved him to be more aware of the potential in living, without suffering and reactivity.

We loved learning about Alexander. And we want to learn more about you, too.

Tell us a little about yourself on the You Series page: Manduka.com/You

Every week, we'll share the story of another real yogi. Maybe soon you'll see yourself here, or see something in yourself here.

Practice On.
