Alex has been teaching and practicing yoga in New York City for over a decade. In 2014 he opened New Vibe Yoga in the East Village to provide the community with a home for an authentic and therapeutic approach to yoga. Inspired by the accessibility and modernity of practices like Jivamukti Yoga, the intense focus and energetic purity of Ashtanga Yoga, and the celebratory aspects of everyday life found in Bhakti Yoga, Alex has created New Vibe Yoga - a studio for a Joyful approach to Ashtanga. Alex has had the pleasure to study closely and train with some of the world's finest yoga teachers, including Christine Hoar, David Williams, Guy Donahaye, Ruth Lauer-Manenti, Rima Rabbath, Isaac Peña, Greg Gumucio, and Ragunath Cappo and has attended special workshops and classes with countless others including Nancey Gilgoff, Maty Ezraty, Sharath Jois, David Life, Sharon Gannon & Hanne Sydanmaa. He is known for his skillful eye, healing touch, precise adjustments, and humor. Alex has taught at many primiere yoga centers throughout New York City including YogaWorks, Equinox, Ashtanga Yoga Shala NYC, Yoga Vida, Go Yoga Brooklyn, Exhale Spa, Yoga to the People as well as working with private clients and operating and owning his own yoga studio since 2014, New Vibe Yoga. Alex is registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT200, and has over 20,000 hours of experience teaching both Mysore and Led Style classes. He practices the 1st, 2nd and 3rd series of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri k. Pattabhi Jois, and maintains a daily kriya, meditation and mantra practice. Modern society and city living inflict all kinds of mental and physical stress on our body and mind and it is Alex's intention to help people discover yogic tools to reduce stress and experience joy.
