I love empowering people with their wellness. So many health gurus love to keep a client latching on to the, unwilling to let them go, once they have learned what they've needed. I love seeing people grow through their experience until they are the expert!
Alejandra is a great overall holistic healer! She is attentive and intuitive to your needs and helps teach you more about the practices of yoga through Ayurveda eating/wellness, yoga practices and life coaching! I highly recommend her for private and group yoga sessions, Ayurveda eating and wellness events, as well as a personal life coach!
Alejandra is amazing! She is a great listener who is very knowledgeable in many different fields.
Private Yoga Sessions provide individualized attention on your specific needs, based on your specific desires as a yogi. If you wish to have a vigorous class and practice inversions, you can choose to have an energizing class. If you are feeling very stressed out, you can choose to have a session that focuses on relaxation. Or, if you want to deepen your meditation practice you can choose to have a private meditation session. Sessions generally last 75 minutes.
Understanding that Yoga is a holistic system that is not just a physical exercise, Wellness Plans offer lifestyle support, including 8-12 private sessions per month. Packages include Ayurvedic Consultation (to determine your needs and goals), Private Yoga sessions, nutrition classes and 1 personalized guided meditation audio. Recognizing that habits are solidified in ~30 days, shortest wellness packages contain 30 days of a transformational lifestyle experience.

I have worked with everyone from Navy Nurse Vets to Heart Surgeons. My favorite clients come from the scientific background, and they get very excited when they start to see the parallel between natural, spiritual based medicine systems and allopathic western medicine based systems.
I have a client who has been taking sessions with me since January 2019 (written in March 2019). At first, she was unable to lie down on the ground in savasana without back pain and a bolster under her knees (swayback). Now, after plenty of different types of stretching classes targeting all the areas of the body, she can lie down comfortably without experience the pinching in the lower back.
