Welcome to the Keen on Yoga Podcast with Alexandria Crow.
Alexandria is an internationally respected teachers’ teacher who leads teacher trainings and workshops around the world. Through her Yoga Physics methodology she aims to clearly explain the what, why’s and how’s of asana, meditation and yogic philosophy. Thereby making the practice approachable for everyone, of every level and of every walk of life.
She shares this knowledge with her students and other teachers so they can practice and teach wisely, sustainably and mindfully. Her Yoga Physics mentorship program is helping teachers build on their strengths, while discovering their own unique voices.
As a former competitive gymnast, the physical challenges of a yoga practice initially provided Alex with a natural familiarity. However it is yoga’s philosophical concepts and their application that remain her driving interest beyond the physical technique of asana.
Through a series of significant and unforeseen injuries her practice and teaching has dramatically evolved towards sustainability and accessibility. Alex has spent years researching the reasons that yoga classes and poses are often unsustainable and carry risks. Both for those who can perform them while also being inaccessible to a many students.
Years of research, scientific inquiry, self inquiry/scrutiny, development and integration have gone into Alex’s work. Resulting in an evolved set of techniques eliminating the problematic components of physical practices and group classes. At the same time providing an in-depth understanding of how individual teachers situate themselves within these dynamics.
The class formats and teaching tools that Alex offers are sustainable and accessible for anyone that wants to take class. This is regardless of circumstance and that teach yoga’s philosophy in real time in an experiential way.
Alex’s emphasis on paying attention and her insistence on each individual respecting their own uniqueness encourages them to love and celebrate who they are. It’s this love of their own unique perfection that creates true change in her students so they can connect with more grace to themselves, to others and to the world.
