Alex Midas has been practicing and teaching yoga for over a decade. She began her yoga pathway as a result of a health scare which inspired Alex to change her lifestyle. Years later she was diagnosed with breast cancer and chose to use alternative therapies which in turn increased her knowledge in health and well-being. Japanese Yoga was one modality that supported Alex during her treatment. Yoga was a powerful tool which assisted her physically and kept her mentally and emotionally strong.
Japanese Yoga (ki) (Oki) is a therapy meridian based yoga using Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Five Element Theory. Specific breath techniques are also used to help move Qi (energy) through the body shifting blood stagnation which allows the body to heal and repair itself.
Alex has created her own fusion in Japanese yoga after completing her training with Lisa Masters at The Yoga House. She continued to increase her knowledge by attending many workshops and courses over the years. The main ones being with the Ishi Family Yoga School from Japan.
Alex is renowned for her expert knowledge, joyful energy and soulful voice. Her goal in teaching yoga is to assist students in achieving optimum health. Her classes are popular, well structured and will leave you feeling strong, balanced, grounded, calm, and a sense of lightness in mind & body.
After being forced into a yoga class in the late nineties as an awkward, developing teen, Jess found solace in the meditative aspects of the practice and its ability to create clarity and confidence. Her interest in life’s deeper questions led her to study western philosophy at university, and eventually eastern philosophy through her formal yoga training. She completed her first yoga teacher training in 2011 whilst simultaneously working in the corporate world in Sydney. Of course, soon after, upon completion of her training she decided to throw it all in and move to Byron Bay to teach yoga full time. She has worked at studios and retreat centres in the area since then and also spent several years as the editor of Australia’s biggest yoga magazine – Australian Yoga Journal. She now spends her time teaching and writing professionally about all things yoga, philosophy, wellbeing and life.
Jess has studied many different styles of yoga – from strong, Vinyasa power to chilled-out Yin and everything in between. She loves how yoga can support us through all phases of life – inviting her students to tune into their body’s innate wisdom while creating the space to explore and grow at their own pace.
