Alex Bovkis, E-RYT 500

Enriching her overall approach is a background in voice and bodywork, Shamanic teachings and dream analysis, Gestalt, and transpersonal coaching. Working both one-on-one and in group format, her style is marked by a flair for weaving the philosophy and history of yoga through her lessons, drawing in particular on the Aphorisms of Patanjali, the widest known of all yoga scripture.

Alex has been a student of this path for over 30 years. Her training included an emphasis on Ayurvedic principles, as well as the yogic way of life and an in-depth history. She has had the privilege of working with variety of teachers such as Hali Schwartz, Nesta Falladows, Christine Cinq Mars, Annette Tersigni and Davina Parkinson, learning a wide range of styles including Kripalu, Sivananda, Iyengar and Hatha. Her classes tend to reflect this diversity. She is in her 11th year of teaching and has taught over 11000 classes.

Alex is the director and the principal teacher for the Yoga Teacher’s Training at Shanti Yoga Studio in Hamilton. Alex also leads Women’s Circles, Canoeing and Meditation retreats, Chanting gatherings and Yoga Philosophy presentations.
