My Yoga path has taken me around the world.

I have been a seeker all my life. From strongly physical to deeply spiritual, torn between the Yin & Yang,  I found myself looking for the answer of how to live a happy, purposeful life.  Only when I realized that it is not to be found in the yearning and seeking, but in surrendering to my own truth and light, I eventually started to get an idea about Yoga.

I live to teach, inspire, serve, share and love.

Yoga to me is liberation; it allows me to escape the cages of the mind and sets my soul on fire. Yoga brings me into the body, grounds me and, at the same time, lifts me into higher dimensions.

My passion lies in intelligently sequenced Vinyasa Classes, Classical Tantra Yoga, Raja Yoga, Yin Yoga and Meditation. I see my classes as ceremony and infuse them with ritual. I live by the moon and look for the stars. I let myself be guided by the elements that make up life as we know it. To understand Yoga, you have to be ready to understand your Self. The darkness and the light. Learn to embrace the whole to become whole.

When I’m not traveling, teaching or contemplating about life, you can find me in the kitchen making raw chocolate.  I design (and eat an abundance of) healthy vegan dishes based on superfoods and high vibrational, living foods.

I believe that we all can live a purposeful life and liberate ourselves from the obstacles of our mind. Tap into your own knowledge and remember who you really are.

BIOGRAPHY

DE/GERMAN:
Alexia is moderne Yogini mit traditionellen Wurzeln. Ihre Ausbildungen sind vielfältig, genau wie sie selbst. Ihre Stunden sind geprägt von viel Herz und Hingabe, was jede Einheit zu einem Erlebnis macht. Sie liebt es mythische Geschichten zu erzählen, Mantren auf dem Harmonium zu chanten, herausfordernde Flows auszuarbeiten und lange Meditationen zu unterrichten. Neben ihren Yogastunden in Wien bietet Alexia jährlich zahlreiche Retreats in Österreich und international an. Sie ist Co-Gründerin der Shakti Academy, die Ausbildungen und Kurse für Frauen anbietet und möchte ihr Wissen über Mond, Ayurveda, Tantra, Daoismus und den Jahreszeiten in die Welt tragen um Frauen zu erheben und in die eigene Kraft zu bringen. Während ihren nach wie vor jährlichen Indienreisen, wo sie Zeit mit ihren Lehrern verbringt und Pilgerreisen für Frauen anbietet, unterstützt Alexia gemeinnützige Organisationen und Ashrams in Form von Freiwilligenarbeit, Aufklärungsarbeit und Spenden. Für Alexia bedeutet Yoga Freiheit. Sie glaubt daran, dass es unser jeder Aufgabe ist, soviel wie möglich über uns selbst zu erfahren um unser Licht zu finden. Nur dann können wir eine Praxis entwickeln, die unser tiefstes Inneres nährt und uns von den Käfigen unserer Gedanken befreit.  Durch Yoga lernen wir Körper, Geist und Seele als Einheit anzunehmen um so ein bewusstes, selbstverantwortetes Leben zu führen.
EN/ENGLISH:
Alexia has been a seeker all her life.  At a very early stage, she knew that learning and teaching Yoga is part of her dharma, her essence. Her background and teaching style is as diverse as her Self. Alexia’s classes are an offering from the heart, which makes every single one of them a true experience. She loves to tell mythic stories, chant Mantras, create smart and challening sequences and teach long meditations. Next to her Yoga classes in Vienna she hosts various international Retreats and Workshops. She is the creatrix of Shakti Camp and  co-founder of Shakti Academy: A Yoga, Myths & Rituals training school that is empowering women to step into their true light through the knowledge of Yoga, Ayurveda, Daoism, TCM, Moon Cycles, Tantra and The Secret. Alexia travels to India every year to connect with her Yogic roots and study with her teachers, as well as to host life-changing pilgrimages and support charity organizations and Ashrams. To Alexia, Yoga means freedom. She believes that it is our purpose to find out as much as possible about ourselves in order to find our true light & essence. Only then we can develop an embodied practice that nourishes our deepest nature and helps us escape the cages of our mind. Through Yoga we learn to appreciate body, mind and soul as ONE, Unity.  It is the gateway to leading a healthy, conscious and empowered life.
