Earthing | Honoring our Connection to Mother Earth
On this barefoot journey through the surrounding landscape we will connect with the wisdom of the plants. You will learn how to identify medicinals and edibles, as well as how to utilize the plants and stock up your medicine cabinet. We will ground into presence through a guided practice and charge our bodies as we move into ancient breathing techniques and primal embodiment practices. This workshop will combine both sound and movement to tap deeper into connection with the earth, spirit and each other.
Since youth, Alexandra has been inspired by movement; an interest which has provided her with a deep passion for body awareness and mindfulness. She began teaching yoga in Nicaragua and then brought her practice home to Vermont.
When not offering retreats in Canada, Bali and elsewhere, she teaches weekly classes and workshops at Yoga Festivals throughout the U.S. A creator, singer, dancer and earth worshiper, Alexandra walks the world with an open heart and mind, always learning and gathering information to pass on. She lives with the aim to inspire others through song, embodiment, creativity, balance, travel and trust.
Alexandra is the owner of The Gypsy Trove (www.The-GypsyTrove.com), an import business that offers unique goods from around the world. She is also the creator of LoveLali, a radical women's clothing line. She strives to empower women by providing a line of Goddess wear that they can feel radiant in (or none at all). Alexandra calls her practice Universal Yoga. This combines Vinyasa and Hatha components with Kundalini elements of mantra and song. She approaches yoga as medicine. Bringing playfulness, intuition and grace to the practice, Alexandra works with her students to cultivate a deeply cleansing and powerful experience.
