Alexandra Ottignon

Yoga & Meditation Teacher

Alexandra recently moved to Lantau Island, Hong Kong, and enjoys the slower pace of island life, a much needed pause after many years of hectic city living.

She first discovered the benefits of Yoga during a prolonged recovery period after knee surgery. Not only did she regain full mobility through Yoga, she realised the importance of a regular movement and meditation practice that promotes balance and harmony for both mind and body. Trips to Bali and Sri Lanka to explore different yoga styles inspired Alex to take a leap and start training as a Yoga Teacher.

Alex teaches beginner classes in dynamic styles such as Ashtanga Yoga, as well as gentle practices in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and meditation techniques such as Yoga Nidra. Her teaching style focuses on alignment and mindful breathing. Truly believing that Yoga is for everyone, she provides variations on postures to suit different people whatever age or ability.

Her goal in teaching is for her students to understand the benefits of taking regular pauses and creating space out of their busy routines for self-care, restoration and healing. Alex believes that yoga is a lifelong practice and she hopes to remain a Yogi well in to her old age! By honouring and listening to your body, Yoga will take care of you throughout your life.
