Alexis Schurman

“Getting to my mat feels like being re-introduced to myself over and over again. What a gift when I’ve spent a lot of my life up in my head.”

Alexis has a specific passion for teaching yoga to children and teenagers. She was formally trained by Coeili Marsh and Sherry Zak at Halifax Yoga, and is currently working toward her 500 Hour Advanced Training. Off the mat, Alexis is fuelled by music. She enjoys playing and seeing live shows and takes immense pride in teaching jazz music to young people.

Using yoga as a tool to learn presence, authenticity, awareness and connection to the physical self has been a continuous source of personal joy for Alexis. Alexis is fascinated by yoga’s relationship to healing, and aims to hold space in all of her classes for her student’s own unique experiences.
