Meet our Power Yoga teacher.
Hello! My name is John Alexander MacIver, but I go by Alex. I am originally from Orillia, Ontario but currently live in Toronto. I am a graduate of Simon Fraser University in British Colombia where I completed a degree in Geography. As a 4-year scholarship Athlete on the basketball team, I learned the importance of commitment, time-management, self-discipline and leadership. These qualities remain the foundational tools I exemplify in my everyday life. In my final year, the student-athlete body recognized my dedication and work ethic by honoring me with the Hero Amongst Us Award and Most Inspirational Athlete of the school. After graduation, I began a career as a consultant in the oil and gas pipeline industry.
While exploring ways of staying active during my work career, I was introduced to Power Vinyasa Yoga and fell in love with this unique form of fitness. Power Yoga quite literally changed my path in life. As time rolled forward, I began to realize how much more power yoga was from the initial perspective of simply being a great workout. Yoga challenged me mentally, to become more focused and present both on and off my mat. It began taking on a deeper meaning of self-inquiry and self-awareness. Yoga led me to the awareness of rising up and living a truly authentic existence. As it transformed into a way of life for me, I am inspired and motivated to teach and share my experience with others. To lead and show people how they can awaken to this awareness as well, and live an exceptionally awesome life!
