Lisa Alexander completed her Yoga Teacher training in 2015. While working in a stressful corporate role in Perth, Lisa used to turn to Yoga and Meditation as a form of stress management and eventually she fell in love with Yoga and Meditation so much that she decided to quit her job and start teaching Yoga. Lisa and her family are from Perth, however they have travelled nationally for work and have lived in Victoria and South Australia. Lisa opened a Yoga Studio in South Australia and has since also established CAUR Yoga, which is an online Yoga Studio. CAUR (pronounced ‘core’) stands for ‘Come As U R’ and is the message behind Lisa’s Yoga teaching. When teaching, Lisa aims to encourage a relaxing environment, free from competition or the need for perfection, where people can feel at ease and free to be themselves.
Lisa has recently returned back to WA, with her husband, son and daughter, to be closer to family and are extremely glad to now call Esperance home.
Lisa is qualified to offer Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Pre & Post Natal Yoga, Reiki and Sound Healings.
I’ve completed my Cacao Ceremony training through Anchoring the Light, with the Lineage of the 7 Rays.
Online Pilates Teacher
I grew up in Esperance and when I finished high school I spent a year living in Canada on Rotary Youth Exchange. I then lived in Perth for four years to study at university. In 2015 I completed a Bachelor of Forensic Investigation but decided it wasn’t for me so in 2016 I completed a Diploma of Education (Primary) as teaching was always something I was passionate about. In 2017 I was offered a position at Boddington District High School and 2018 took me to Christmas Island.
My interest in Pilates began when I was living and teaching in Boddington. I often suffered from lower back pain and when I first started doing Pilates there were many exercises that I could not do. I began attending regular classes and after a few weeks felt a huge change, both mentally and physically and my back pain was greatly reduced. It was clear how important strengthening core muscles were and I decided over the summer school holidays that I was going to enrol in teacher training to become a Pilates instructor. I studied through Studio Pilates online and completed the Anatomy course and Matwork Pilates course in Perth in March 2018.
I have always been passionate about health and fitness and grew up playing netball, basketball, tennis and squash in Esperance. In 2018 I lived and worked as a primary school teacher on Christmas Island and began teaching Pilates twice a week at the Christmas Island Recreation Centre. Since completing the Pilates Matwork Course I have gained additional qualifications including Pilates using a small ball and foam roller, that I hope to incorporate into my classes at Twilight Yoga Studio in 2019.
This year I am teaching at Condingup Primary School and I am lucky enough to be teaching two Pilates classes per week at Twilight Yoga Studio.
Hatha Yoga & Meditation Teacher
I am a hatha yoga teacher and have been blessed to train under the guidance of my beloved yoga teacher Graeme Hodges as well as many others. My meditation training was also inspired by Buddhist teacher Alan Wallace. I have also been blessed with studying under Mahayana Buddhist Geshe, Tenzin Tenphil. What fortunate karma. The most incredible gift has been through guidance on the path of the ancient wisdom traditions. Over many years I have developed a passion for encouraging others to train the mind and develop ways to enhance global consciousness, compassion and loving kindness. I have also had a keen interest in psychology and ethics through social justice perspectives as a social worker. An awakened presence is the greatest gift to cultivate every day for both ourselves and others. Hope to see you at a class soon.
