has established an international reputation for innovation in developing yoga, meditation and movement-based teaching inspired by the latest scientific research on the body and self-development.
His work today is a synthesis of his 30 years of experience in movement, dance, yoga, meditation and therapy, with more than 25,000 hours of self-practice, teaching workshops, one-to-one tuition, yoga teacher training and hands-on treatment sessions.
Alexander began his career at age 17 as a state-approved professional dancer at the John Cranko Ballet Academy in Stuttgart, from where he went on to dance with the German Opera House in Düsseldorf and Düsburg. He reached a turning point in his life after a back injury, when his quest to understand the moving body took him on extensive travels to India and Europe to study yoga, Eastern psychology and philosophy and the Fourth Way teachings.
He is now a fully qualified Senior Yoga/Movement Teacher, an advanced CranioSacral and SomatoEmotional Release® therapist and a lecturer in Eastern philosophy and psychology.
His inspiration comes from the latest research by leading scientists exploring ground-breaking interventions using meditation and body work, including neuroscientist R. Davidson, Dr. Upledger, John Zahourek, Thomas W. Myers, Candice B. Pert PhD, and Deane Juhan.
Alexander teaches workshops on Yoga Intensives, Yoga A-Z, Stress Management, Yogic Disciplines, Self-Development and a variety of popular short courses, as well as extensive 200- and 500-hour yoga, Pilates and meditation teacher training courses in London and Europe.
He takes primary responsibility for the Contemporary Meditation Faculty, Teaching Methodology, Advaita, Philosophy and Ancient Psychology at the internationally renowned Art of Contemporary Yoga School and the Science of Body Architecture.
He is the author of Inside Meditation: In Search of the Unchanging Nature Within, which is a comprehensive exploration and contemporary analysis of the process, practice and science of meditation.
The first thing you discover is
a kind of emptiness,
a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,
like looking up at a limitless sky.
That boundary-less place
is your own consciousness,
When you relax into it,
you realize that it's also full -
it is everything.
You realize this presence is
what you really are: Love.
