Contact: Phone: (707) 745-3621  /  Email: Alexa-Yoga [at] att.net  /  Alexa [at] YogaForLifeBenicia.com
Website: www.yogaforlifebenicia.com  |  Private Yoga Session Info
Instructor: Alexa Simpson
Yoga Style: Teacher training in Integral Yoga Hatha and in Anusara Yoga.
Over 25 years experience have evolved a joyful synthesis of my studies and personal practice.
Specialties: Yoga Therapy, Private Sessions, Workshops: Partner Yoga, Yoga Breathing Intensive, Yoga For Digestion, Yoga & Healing, Communication and Conflict Resolution, Stress Management
Description: The atmosphere in my classes and workshops is warm, light-hearted and playful. Every student receives personal attention and assistance, and I take great care to make sure that everyone learns how to practice yoga safely.
I have been a passionate student of yoga and meditation since 1965. I trained intensively with teachers both in India and the United States, including Sw. Chinmayananda in the 60's and later Sw. Satchidananda, Sw. Muktananda and Sw. Chidvilasananda. I completed my yoga teacher certification through the Integral Yoga Institute in San Francisco in 1972 and taught in Berkeley and Santa Barbara before moving to Benicia and opening Yoga for Life.
In 1998 I began training with John Friend in Anusara Yoga. This is the fastest growing style of yoga in America. It integrates "Universal Principles of Alignment and Form", the art of inner body awareness and celebration of the heart. Since then, I completed both Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy Training with John.
The therapeutic benefits of yoga are of particular interest to me. I also have a Masters Degree in Health Education and have received special training in using yoga to help people who have MS or other disabilities that limit mobility.
