Alec Balfour

Alec comes from a background of sports playing high level basketball and rugby, he was first introduced to yoga in 2011 as a mean to prevent injury and increase flexibility. With time his passion for sports became a passion for yoga and movement. Coming from an Ashtanga background he gradually fell in love with yin, vinyasa flow, animal locomotion... basically movement & mobility in general. He is influenced by his teachers Mark Robberds & Deepika Mehta and what he learned studying with them. He hopes to teach a safe class that will help with longevity in mobility, flexibility and strength in respects to western anatomy while staying true to the eastern science that is yoga.
This is a class that reflects classical roots of yoga - a sequence of asana that is slow paced with focus on alignments, not vinyasa style. Asana are performed to warm up your body and prepare it for the main part - meditation. You will be guided and supported by the instructor during meditation so that your mind follows your will, not the other way around.
