About Alexis Feldman
Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.” –Thich Nhat Hanh
From the time I was born I knew I wanted to teach. I wasn’t sure what or when it would happen, but deep in my soul I knew where ever I ended up in life teaching would be part of it.
Sports have always been a part of my life. I starting playing volleyball in grade school and ended up as the captain of my college women’s volleyball team at Cabrini College. Having used cross-country and track teams to stay fit during the off-season I decided once school was over to keep the momentum going through my 20’s and now 30’s running half-marathons across the country and hopefully one day around the world.
With any training come injuries like pulled hamstrings which landed me in Angela Travaglini’s class at Sol Yoga Studio. It took Angela a long time to convince me to try power yoga, something I now know I can not thank her enough for. It was from that moment that I knew yoga was going to be something very special in my life. I felt more alive after 75 minutes of yoga then I had in 30 years.
I have learned about life, love and most importantly myself over the last two years which led me to realize this was the calling I was waiting for. This was my opportunity to teach. Every time I step on my mat I learn something new about my practice, the movements that make up the practice of power yoga and most importantly who I am. I hope to share my love of yoga with each of you! Namaste. When not on the mat I love to travel, spend time with family and friends and catch some sun on my face! I currently reside in Bridgeport with my husband and our small farm of rescue pets.
