The Wellness Gurus

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.

The schedule of her public classes can be found at ali-alexander.com

David Crimi

Toronto-native David Crimi began teaching yoga in 2007. Since then, he has completed additional trainings in Yin, Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa, and meditation techniques.

After teaching in Toronto for some time, David began his journey teaching across North America from New York to Los Angeles and Seattle to Tampa. In each area, he received new insight on teaching methodologies and learned from students and teachers of all walks of life. He considers this to be one of his most profound learning experiences and is deeply grateful for his time abroad. David now calls Toronto 'home' once again and continues to teach yoga within the Modo and Saana Yoga communities.  

David’s style of teaching is lighthearted and fun but demanding at times. He’ll have you laughing while providing fresh tidbits about poses you know and love (and maybe love to hate). He’ll make sure you leave your mat feeling worked, energized, relaxed, and reconnected.
