Alex 2TRAVEL:

Barcelona. The city sits on a beautiful valley on the Mediterranean where the water is the bluest I’ve ever seen. But the real treat is that the city has a culture to me that seems extremely free flowing emotional energy. It is like a more chill San Francisco.

MUSIC:

Heavy Horses – Jethro Tull
Black Cloud – Davina and the Vagabonds

PRODUCTIVITY:

I don’t take days off in the Winter. That way I feel at liberty to enjoy the warmer months. The winter is when I get a lot of my training work done. When people ask me why I don’t move somewhere warmer, my reply is always ‘because I’d never get any work done.’

READS:

‘Getting Real’ by Susan Campbell, PhD
This book is cataloged under Business, but it is really quite remarkably yogic. And humbling. I now have my teacher trainees reading it. I know Dr. Campbell is an avid meditator and her work here shows it. When it comes to taking yoga from the mat to your relationships, this book nails it.

YOU USED TO DO WHAT??

I worked as an engineer for 7 years before becoming a full time yoga teacher. During that time I designed systems to help Boeing craft fly. When I went to my boss to tell him I was quitting my job to teach yoga, he replied: ‘It sounds like there is no way I can talk you out of that.’

QUICK, 3 WORDS:

On. A. Mission
