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.
Alec Balfour instructs the following:
Yoga Teacher Training 200hr Module 4
Vinyasa Flow is a creative, balanced and energetic sequence of postures linked with breath that warm, strengthen and empower the Body and Mind. Modifications and options are provided for postures to make this class accessible to all levels.
Hatha All Levels
HATHA ALL LEVELS: A Hatha class is aimed at helping students achieve proper body alignment while exploring breath techniques in traditional Hatha yoga postures, developing strength, balance, flexibility and relaxation while connecting the mind, body and soul.
Power Flow Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements.
Movement and Meditation
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.
