Ali Alexander

Ali has been teaching yoga since 2005 and is also a yoga therapist. She teaches publicly and privately in Toronto and offers a variety of approaches to the practice: group asana classes, one-on-one yoga therapy sessions, meditation, and philosophy.

In all aspects of her teaching there is emphasis on breathing and practicing awareness of the present experience. Whether moving in synch with it or using it as an indicator of our condition, the breath is the primary guide of the practice.

In Ali's teaching and exploration of common themes and the impacts they have on our daily lives is facilitated by the use of readings and commentary on texts such as Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, Bhagavad Gita, and Tao Te Ching of Lao Tsu.
