🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I can't say enough good things about Alexa! She is an incredible yoga instructor who brings a unique blend of philosophy and humor to every class. Her sessions are not just about physical exercise but also about mental and spiritual growth. Alexa's ability to seamlessly integrate deep philosophical insights with yoga practice makes each class a truly enriching experience. What sets Alexa apart is her versatility. Not only does she excel in yoga, but she also teaches martial arts classes, which are equally amazing. Her knowledge and passion for both disciplines are evident, and she knows exactly how to motivate and challenge her students. If you haven't attended her Sunday classes at Motion Fitness, you're missing out! These sessions are the perfect way to end the week on a high note. Alexa's energy is infectious, and her sense of humor makes the classes fun and engaging. She has a knack for making everyone feel comfortable and included, regardless of their skill level. Thank you, Alexa, for being such an inspiring and dedicated instructor. Your classes have made a significant impact on my physical and mental well-being. I highly recommend Alexa to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice or explore martial arts. You won't be disappointed!!

Alexa's classes are my favourite part of the week! She has so much choice, and as an instructor and person she is incredibly skilled, patient and empowering. If you have a difficult relationship with exercise and fitness, I can wholeheartedly recommend her services. I take the Fight Club online classes twice a week, where I can practice a range of martial arts in my living room and have the best workout of my life! I also take yoga when I have a chance, and Alexa's ability to the switch gears and teach a mindful and soothing yoga class never ceases to amaze me. I first met Alexa taking her yoga classes, and over the years we've become firm friends. It's a story I hear often when speaking to other people who take her classes! It's a testament to her kindness, passion and skill at her profession that people not only return week after week, but also count her as a close friend.

The first day I met Alexa she was instructing a class at One Yoga, and greeted me with a big smile and positive energy. The second time she greeted me with a hug. She is not only an excellent teacher but a wonderful person and friend to everyone. I attend her yoga classes weekly and don’t know what I would do without them in my life. They are filled with beautiful philosophies, elements of nature and of course the best jokes. I have learned so much from Alexa and would recommend her classes to anyone. ❤️
