Alexis Cox


Alexis’ journey as a yoga teacher and healer began when she dipped her toes in India, and ended up taking a full swim in the Ganges! Her first formal study was one-on-one in the ancient tradition in Rishikesh, at the base of the Himalayas.  After her spiritual sojourn that took her twice to live in India, traveling through the U.S, and ultimately Crete over the course of 2 years, she returned home to Santa Monica where she continued her journey with Govind Das at Bhakti Yoga Shala, where she currently teaches and where she learned the gift of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of love.  She is a heart-centric teacher who always comes from and returns back to, a place of deep gratitude and love while leading her classes through their own deeply personal and magical journey home.  She has done her advanced study through the Dancing Shiva Society in Yoga and Ayurveda, India’s sister sciences that aim to bring our bodies and minds into perfect balance.  Alexis uses the elements of Ayurveda and the practice of Bhakti to design playful, energetic sequencing that is not only suited for the climate and time of day, but is truly healthful and healing and full of love.
