About Alex

I am inspired by movement, stillness, humans, and nature. I believe in a non-dogmatic approach to yoga, constantly exploring ways to make it accessible to everyone, regardless of race, gender, size, or ability. I teach mindfulness to facilitate deeper connection with self through thoughtfully sequenced, playful vinyasa and yin that’s sweetly soothing to the body, mind and nerves. I hope to inspire deeper self-love and growth in my students.

Why Join

Escape the stress of daily life in paradise with self-care, connection, and relaxation. Join like-minded yogis for classes that will challenge your mind and body, all the while deeply soothing your system. Yoga has the capacity to heal and transform people from all walks of life, and I specialize in seeing the uniqueness of each yogi to make it accessible and fulfilling to anyone. I couple strong vinyasa with gentle yin classes to balance you from the inside out. I also teach acroyoga and thai massage workshops, so you will get to explore further ways to connect with yourself and the group.

"I had such an amazing time on this yoga retreat! They went above and beyond - the attention to detail from their staff was outstanding, the food was healthy and delicious and there was easy access to tons of fun things to do around Puerto Vallarta!"


"I had a wonderful retreat last week at Yoga Retreats & Co. The website was easy to navigate, the photos do it justice (it is a true GEM!) and the staff was a pleasure to be around. I've never taken a yoga retreat before and this was such a wonderful experience, I would go back!! I also have never eaten solely Vegan and our menu was outstanding. So many flavors as well as yummy desserts too! Thank you all!!"


"Went on this yoga retreat beginning of May not knowing what to expect and I had the most wonderful experience. The "architectural tree houses" are beyond gorgeous, the amenities luxurious and the hosts are wonderful. Julien and Lucy succeed in their challenge of welcoming people and make them forget about their everyday stress. They are lovely hosts whom know exactly how to receive and make you feel at home. A 6 star experience. I look forward to going back!"


"Yoga Retreats & Co. went above and beyond in making sure we maximized our time and experience in Puerto Vallarta! First of all, the pictures on their site barely give it justice! Our accommodations were breathtaking and all the excursions were fun and authentic to where and what the locals do which was a rich experience. Lastly, the food was spectacular and Lucy and Julien were delightful hosts. I hope to come back soon."
