Born a world citizen…
… in Canada to Lebanese parents and living and Sweden, Alex has been guided by curiosity to seek roots, mening and the significant questions of life. She has always had the gift of turning perspectives, both her own and others’. There are always more questions then there are answers.
Alexandra teaches and spreads empowerment through movement and inspiring talks on matters of life. She has the support of a master’s degree in psychology as well as studies that have taken her through different styles of yoga, leadership and coaching trainings. Through the years she has developed her own style of movement with lingering curiosity and a dancelike flow. Alex seeks to offer understanding and awaken integrity and connection from within. She elegantly weaves ancient wisdom with modern everyday-life and science.
She left a 9 to 5 job as a social worker and lifestyle coach, to cultivate her interest and studies in Eastern philosophy and creative movement under the guidance of world renowned teachers.
Dharma is born from a longing for adventure, deep quest and to serve. Alex shares her teaching with those who wished to explore the play of yoga and know themselves. With those who are brave enough to be open for the presence of Wonder.
Throughout the years Alex has encountered amazing teachers and has been infused with their teachings in yoga philosophy, anatomy, mindfulness and of course the art of movement. Among the many teachers and inspirers she has a special connection to Kira Sloane founder of former Lulu Bandas and president of Yoga Anytime of which Alex is a part of; Miss vinyasa flow – Julie Martin founder of Brahmani yoga; Doug Keller – Mr biomechanics of yoga and super scholar and spiritual teacher Ravi Ravindra who encourages the expansion of the mind and awareness.
Yoga happens in relationship. Dharma works in collaborations. That’s where the creative process is in play. Dharma can nowadays be found at The Dharma Loft in Västerås, but there used to be a vagabond era when she opened up new spaces for yoga and movement, both in Sweden and abroad. Locations of practice and creation have been at Fotografiska The museum of photography in Stockholm, The Castle of Västerås, The Theater of Västmanland, and the Art museum in Västerås where she does some visits. She is a member and teacher on Yoga Anytime and you might also find her teaching in Palma de Mallorca, or while visiting Ojai in California.
Alex has a close collaboration with David Phillips of Presentationsteknik.se – a company that cultivates presentation techniques and offers leadership courses. She also works with Equalate – leading experts on gender equality and inclusion in corporations and organizations.
Dharma welcomes you, to a world of creative movement.
