Alexandra Rossi, ERYT500 and Paris native, shares the practice of yoga with everyone, from children to adults, in an honest and playful way. Her personal practice has taken her from therapeutic based Anusara Yoga to a more restorative practice, influenced by Judith Lasater, Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra. After many years of teaching, she realized that her true calling is to empower women at every stage of their lives.
She is greatly influenced by Jane Austin and by Gurmukh’s teachings on prenatal yoga. She is now convinced that women need a mix of strengthening and restorative practices to accommodate the changing nature of their bodies.
Alexandra’s classes combine music, and healing touch with buddhist philosophy. She is known for her skillful and intuitive hands-on adjustments. Read more about her on our Featured Teacher article.
