Alex Wilson (Crosbie)
Before I ever even knew what yoga was, it called to me. Before I ever even wanted a practice in my life, yoga was there, waiting for me. When I began my slow and inconsistent journey, yoga was patient. When I felt that I was never going to get anything from it, yoga came through for me with exactly what I needed. When I became confident and boastful about my practice, yoga challenged me in new ways and helped me feel humble. Whenever I need something, with faith, practice, and dedication, yoga delivers. As a teacher, my goal is simply to share the gift of yoga with everyone who wants it (and maybe even the people who don’t want it), and my wish is that yoga serves you in whatever way you need it to.
Alex Wilson (Crosbie) instructs the following:
Yoga Bird Flow
This upbeat, mixed-level class incorporates both alignment of the body and vinyasa (breath by breath movement) to help you experience profound benefits in a short time. In this class, you very much design your own experience, with the instructor suggesting ways to slow down and focus on inner awareness or ways to build heat and challenge. The diversity available in this practice is part of what makes it so fun.
Yoga Lunch Break
Give yourself a healthy break half way through the day. Yoga lunch break is a shortened all-levels asana practice. In just45 minutes, you’ll enjoy stretching, moving, and strengthening that will power you up for the rest of the day, without making you so sweaty you can’t go back to the office. Have a little extra time? Stay fifteen more minutes for an extended meditation.
Power Yoga at the Bird is an accessible, yet challenging asana practice for body and mind to help you build strength and endurance and cultivate a clear mind. Learn to work with more challenging sequences and poses in a way that allows you to build inner support so that your practice is invigorating, safe, and sustainable. Students are encouraged to modify and rest as appropriate. It will be helpful to be familiar with some common poses and modifications from Yoga 1.
