Alexis is an Oklahoma native who travelled to California in search of art, nature, and adventure. She graduated from Cal Poly in 2012 with a degree in Art and Design. Her love of art guided her towards the practice of yoga as a means of personal expression, stress relief and inner peace. Alexis studied under Roxy Borger and Jonathan Gabriel in the Smiling Dog Yoga teacher training class of 2015/2016, earning her RYC 200 hour certification. Her teaching style combines fluid movement, connection with breath, mindfulness, and acceptance of self. Alexis believes that yoga is a means for deepening respect and love of the body, mind and spirit by embracing and celebrating all shapes, sizes, and abilities in her classes. Aside from yoga, Alexis works in social services at a non-profit organization and as a tattoo artist specializing in custom, hand-poked designs.
Alexis King instructs the following:
Good for anybody and everybody, beginners to seasoned yogis, these classes are the best place to start and are the perfect balance of strengthening and stretching. These classes blend standing poses, seated/floor poses, meditation, and breath exercises. This class may also include some active flow or sun salutations but this component will be minimal.
A contemplative and meditative practice using long-held floor postures and breath awareness to target deep fascial release. This is a tried and true way of increasing flexibility in the hips and spine. May include some standing poses to balance the practice. A slower paced class, great for those looking to increase flexibility.
