Alexis Irias, also know as Lex, first met AumRak 12 years ago in Roatan, Honduras, her native country. She was 18 at the time as she watched and listened in wonder to the conversations that AumRak had with friends who had recently returned from Bali. They spoke of meditation, Yoga, the importance of caring for the earth and of holistic healing techniques. They spoke with love, compassion and intention. This resonated with her and from that day on she modeled herself after these powerful conscious women, and became deeply curios about ancient wisdom and healing.
Her yoga practice developed soon after. Having experienced both physical and emotional trauma, she claims yoga is the best discovery and biggest blessing that has manifested into her life. She became fascinated with the healing capabilities of the mind/body connection through the breath and found deep spiritual fulfillment with this practice. She immersed herself into different styles of yoga, including hatha, ashtanga, kundalini, hot yoga, yin and restorative she found a love and connection to all modalities.
For more than eight years she found joy and peace with being a student, so much so she hesitated to teach. Even after completing yoga teacher training to deepen her own practice, she didn’t jump into teaching but instead kept experiencing different classes and workshops. She completed a level one Reiki certification, and studied meditation, joyfulness and buddhism for a few years with Kunga Dawa in Boulder, CO. It wasn’t until recently meeting with AumRak again that she felt truly called to step into the role of an instructor and offer her wisdom to the community. She now teaches a Spanish yoga and meditation class in Denver, CO and will soon be teaching more classes in the local community.
Her classes incorporate a unique blend of all the healing modalities she has learned and continues to learn. She emphasizes the importance of being raw and true to oneself while we go through this fascinating human experience; a human experience that is worth embracing as one of it’s kind yet connected to all beings.
She’s incredibly excited and honored to be teaching yoga for AumRak’s retreat in Copan, Honduras. One of her soul’s mission on this earth is to plant seeds of consciousness in a country that she feels incredibly passionate about and that at this time needs it. She hopes this event will bring together individuals who will bring light and love to Honduras while learning about ancient Mayan wisdom and shamanic healing.
