Alex West My Story

Over the last 22 years I’ve taught over 5000 yoga classes on a 1 to 1 and group basis to a broad cross section of people, including senior executives at financial Institutions,  Architects, Law Firms, PR Agencies as well as individuals from every walk of life.

As well as helping to run a Shiatsu Massage school and giving many hundreds of Shiatsu massage treatments, I have 20 Years experience of teaching Bodywork therapies,  Anatomy & Physiology and the ‘Qi’ based
Taoist healing arts of T’ai Chi and  Qi Gong.

In addition to this, from 2001 to 2009, I also managed the marketing department at The EIC (Environmental Industries Commission) a trade body for Technology Providers.

My direct experience of how much the bottom line of the company was impacted by the mental focus, positivity, energy and enthusiasm of the staff guided the development of my Workplace Yoga Programme which is the result of a rigorous qualitative analysis of 20 years teaching experience in order to be able to offer the most time efficient and effective Yoga techniques there are for enhancing performance and productivity in the workplace.

Both Senior Executives and staff who do Yoga with regularly comment that they have greater focus, feel less stressed, and make better decisions when doing weekly yoga sessions with me.

What you get depends On how you are on the day- you could get a high intensity kundalini yoga workout to build strength and eliminate stress, a dynamic vinyasa flow that stretches you to your (safe) limits, or Shamanic movement and T’ai Chi sequences with guided meditation to take you to new states of relaxation, mental focus and inner peace.

The concepts of Yoga exercises are simple and easy to understand. They don’t need to take much time, and can have a huge impact on how well you feel, perform and relate.

My personal passion for yoga, along with my experience as an actor and director, give me the ability to communicate these concepts clearly so that anyone may benefit from the tremendous potential of Yoga to improve every aspect of your personal and working life.
