As a senior teacher and trainer with Yoga Alliance US, I have years of extensive teaching experience. With all the yoga teacher training available, it’s important teachers can get advice and support on how to further their careers. I am available for these sessions over Skype and face-to-face where possible. I will be looking to set up workshops for teachers. Various themes will be available helping new teachers to get classes and work their way into the world of teaching yoga. I am also looking to assist new teachers with their anatomy knowledge and class planning and sequencing. Music is also a big part of my teaching and I am excited to share my love of it with other teachers, helping them to incorporate music and sound into their classes. 
I am pleased to be able to offer a mentoring program provided on a weekly basis for 6 weeks. In these sessions, we will go over teaching points, class plans, business plans, possible injury and student needs and anything else that is causing concern or is in need of attention and coaching. 
A 6-week mentoring course at £400.

Client feedback

…mindful attention…

“Alexa is an excellent yoga teacher. Her classes bring mindful attention to various parts of the body to help you stretch, tone and relax. By learning to be mindfully present in the moment, I’ve felt more connected to others and the world around me.”

Laetitia Zeeman, Brighton

…a huge impact on me…

“I just wanted to say how much I appreciated your teaching on the Sunday of our course at harmonise. Even though it was only one day it has had a huge impact on me. Your way of connecting with others is really warm and inviting and your teaching style is somehow both fun and meditative at the same time. Doing our first mini sun salutation teach was terrifying and you made it feel soo much easier! I know a number of us, myself included, are really gutted we don’t get to have you for the full course and so I wanted to pass on how much we appreciated your presence”

Rachel Spragg, Teacher Training student

…most amazing and magical…

“Only known her a few months, but Alexa Garside is one of the most amazing and magical and funny yoga teachers I have ever had with a wonderful energy… blessed to have been to her classes, an amazing outdoor yoga session in the sunshine and today, her last class before she moves to Canada! “

Nina, Brighton

…by far the best…

“Of my 20yrs in Brighton you are by far the best yoga teacher I’ve had and I’ve had a few!”
