For over a decade, Alex Wieland, RYT 200, has worked tirelessly to hold spaces and create places that are better than she found them. Her professional experience spans media, the arts, education, and management consulting.
In 2018, Alex completed her yoga training through the Pranakriya tradition at Crofton Yoga Studio. But as far back as high school, yoga was part of Alex’s life – a recovery method for years spent on field hockey and lacrosse fields. Yoga continued to be her source of perspective, strength, and relaxation up until two weeks before giving birth to her daughter. Then, she took a breath to discover her new role as a mother.
Missing the consistent presence and benefits of yoga and inspired by the events of 2020, Alex began playing an active role in advancing socially just policies and practices by volunteering on Pranakriya’s Social Justice Committee. She also launched www.bewellbeyou.org to share yoga’s restorative power with students regardless of where they are spiritually and geographically. In 2021, Alex joined Pranakriya’s Board of Directors.
Bringing calm energy and a passion for wellbeing, expect Alex to encourage you to be well (however you define that), and most importantly to be you… on and off the mat. Alex lives in Annapolis, MD with her husband, daughter, and King Charles Cavalier Spaniel – the couple’s “first born.”
