Name: Blanche Alexander
Role: Victoria Programs Administrator & Junior Facilitator
Blanche Alexander moved from Perth 3 years ago, and joined the team in August 2014. After completing a Masters of Architecture whilst dancing competitively, she moved to Melbourne and was originally drawn to yoga to release some stress and anxiety. Over time, a daily practice developed and the studio quickly became her second home.
The strong focus on the physical body in its strength, movement, expression and flow, felt graceful like dancing to Blanche. Soon after starting she signed up for teacher training to gain a deeper understanding of her own practice, however during the course she discovered a desire to pursue teaching. Grateful for all the experiences of the training, she felt completely inspired and encouraged by all the teachers along her yoga journey so far.
After training Blanche traveled for a few months and returned calm, ready and with an open mind for new opportunities. She started in an educator position at the studio initially before moving into her current role and is now also teaching at both Fitzroy and South Melbourne.
Getting to know the crew:
In one word how would you best friend describe you?
Surprisingly she answered… ambitious
What sound do you love?
Sound of the ocean, the wind and the waves
What turns you on?
Here we go… coffee, corn chips, peanut butter choc chip cookies, kicks, dancing, illustration, sand between my toes, cooking, tattoos, sweet corn, music, hand lettering, driving and singing, riding my bike, the first dive into a wave at the beach, walking in wilderness, chilling, painting, going home and feasting with my family in Perth, hugs that go on forever, gin, chocolate coated almonds, sunflowers and the dream that one day I will own a dog of every size, shape and colour.
