About The Teacher

Alex Duchscher, ERYT, has been practicing yoga since 1999, and teaching yoga since 2002, when she got her initial 200 hour teacher training certificate from Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. In the last 15 years she has incorporated more Vinyasa flow to complement Kripalu's Hatha style of yoga, attending trainings with Vinyasa teachers and mentors Shiva Rea, Jessica Lazar and Shannon Paige. Also, studying and practicing Buddhist philosophy and meditation with her teacher Michael Gregory has added a joyful peace and freedom to her approach to yoga practice. Today her style and flow revolve around the breath as teacher, guiding her into deeper expressions of organic, fluid grace combined with power channeled from within. Alex is also a massage therapist, and brings her deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology to her yoga teaching. Her flow is fluid and strong, based on a solid foundation of anatomical awareness.

      Yoga Retreat with Alex

    My husband and I fully enjoyed our yoga retreat last October in Puerto Vallarta, MX, led by Alex and Miryam. I've been practicing yoga for about 7 years and my husband for a little over a year. The retreat was a terrific opportunity for us to center ourselves, improve our individual practices, and enjoy the company of other adventurous yogis. The retreat took us away from our busy schedules and gave us the gift of time for relaxation and self exploration. We particularly enjoyed the opportunity we were provided during the week to help out at a local school - giving back to the community. Alex and Miryam are both wonderful guides and yoga instructors, with a true love of life. They made our time special. We both returned from the retreat with a renewed commitment to yoga and a healthy life style.

You are a living embodiment of the kindness, love, and appreciation you dare to offer. The more you share it with others, the brighter you shine. Matt Kahn

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Practice, learn, share, relax. Karin

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
