About the Teachers

Alex Rodoni: My voyage into yoga commenced in 2010 with a casual interest in the yogic lifestyle near my California hometown.

In 2013, my knee surgeries led me to embrace yoga for recovery, utilizing meditation to conquer physical pain and Asana practice for gradual motion restoration.

My yoga journey has since flourished in Prague. I obtained a 200-hour Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga teacher training certification from Yoga Vimoksha in Goa, India in December 2015.

Further, I achieved a 500-hour advanced Ashtanga teacher training from Kranti Yoga in Goa, India in January 2017.

Specializing in Vinyasa flow, I emphasize breath work, using it to harmonize the mind and body.

Lisa Wakenshaw: Yoga holds a special place in my heart, encompassing a variety of styles that have enriched my journey since my introduction to Hot Yoga in 2005. This path has taken me across the globe and back, allowing me to explore and evolve.

My practice is diverse; I've ventured into Hatha, AcroYoga, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Pre/Post-Natal/Baby, Rocket Yoga, and Hot Yoga. Beyond that, I've delved into Partner Acrobatics, Flying Therapeutics, and Thai massage, all to enhance my teaching abilities and deepen my personal growth.

Emphasizing the vital link between breath and alignment, I approach teaching with this foundation, recognizing the symbiosis of our physical form and breath.

Beyond yoga, I embrace life as a barefoot-running, fun-loving mother to two (Phineas, born in 2016, and Avi, born 2019). I relish vegan cuisine, early morning practices, and the embrace of rainy, cold autumn days. My journey continues to unfold with passion and curiosity.
