Alexandra Moga began practicing Sahaja yoga Kundalini meditation at the age of 7 under the guidance of her aunt. At 15, she took her first yoga class and found the practice perfectly served her natural passion for movement and innate interest in and dedication to spirituality.
In 2010, she completed the New York Yoga Society’s teacher training at Ananda Ashram under the tutelage of Ashtanga-master David Hollander. After working with children in a Brooklyn charter school for three years, she was drawn to the the Bent on Learning Kids’ Yoga training to better understand the subtleties of sharing yoga with children.
In 2012, she traveled to India and studied at the Mayapur Institute where the Bhakti Yoga path was revealed to her, adding a new facet of understanding to her practice and teaching. Alexandra’s classes are influenced by Ashtanga yoga’s physicality with a constant eye towards the other 7 limbs, which she considers indispensable to a complete yoga practice. Frequent contact with the Iyengar style has also informed how she teaches postural alignment for a safe and ease-full experience.
For the past three years, she has been diving into the Kundalini method and has been incorporating it in her classes to help students connect more deeply and vividly to their inner stillness and power. She is grateful to be serving The Bhakti Center community and bows to the many teachers who have guided her ever-closer to understanding yoga, the divine, and how to be of service; namely: her mama, her aunt, Raghunath, Dhanurdhara Swami, His Holiness Radhanath Swami, and His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
