About Alec

Although my academic background is primarily in religious studies with an emphasis on Hinduism, Daoism, Buddhism, and critical theory (with a smattering of economics,) my primary interest lies in exploring various routes to health on the physical and psycho-spiritual levels.  

I'm not a businessman,
I'm a business, man.

I strongly believe in the necessity of adopting a multidisciplinary approach to cultivating health and wholeness, both within oneself and in one's relation to the surrounding environment. My personal and professional practices have currently taken shape at the intersection of postural yoga, mindfulness exercises, structural manipulation through bodywork, energetic manipulation through intention, and analytical psychology, though I'm always eager to learn new skills to incorporate into the skillful means of healing. I'm also a strong supporter of creating opportunities for oneself to succeed personally and financially outside of traditional forms. As the poet Shawn Corey once wrote, "9 to 5 is how you survive. I ain't trying to survive; I'm tryna live it to the limit and love it a lot...I'd rather die enormous than live dormant." 

Above all, I believe in the importance of spreading knowledge and awareness of these various paths towards good health. Whether teaching mindfulness through the lens of neuroscience to adolescents, creating postural changes in clients with myofascial release, or guiding students in the art of release through yin yoga, my primary intention is to offer both intellectual and experiential opportunities for those around me to move towards a place of happiness and wholeness.
