Meet Lexi. From a young age, Lexi used to practice yoga with her grandmother and always found it very intriguing. Over the years, Lexi had attending a few yoga classes, but never had the time to fully commit to regular practicing due to university studies. She finally had the time to rediscover her passion for yoga after graduating as a Kindergarten Teacher, which led her to applying for the 200hr Teacher Training at Island Yoga, improving her knowledge and personal practice, and qualifying. Not only does Lexi love the physical benefits of the movement of yoga, however she strongly believes in the positive effects yoga brings for someone’s mental health.

After an injury stopped her from continuing rowing as a teenager, she found a new passion for yoga and aerials, which is not only physically but mentally beneficial.
