Alexander Wales

Alex first came to yoga through meditation, and this practice continues to provide the foundation of his yoga journey and the inspiration for his teaching.  He sees the practice of yoga postures as a means to integrate the subtle transformative effects of meditation with the physical body and create space in life for peace, energy and creativity to arise.

He completed teacher training with Simon Low at the Yoga Academy and teaches the anatomy and physiology modules on the AYP yoga teacher training. Alex is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and practices myofascial release as an adjunct therapy. He is deeply interested in the clinical applications of yoga and mindfulness in pain management. Alex offers a therapeutic practice, leading to healthy, functional and effortless movement in daily living.
