Aisha, who was given the spiritual name Ma Abha Anand by her Guru based on her ability to create and share blissful light, first found yoga at O2 when she moved to Aspen as a snowboard bum in the early millennial shift. Yoga quickly became her tool for balancing an active mountain lifestyle. She took the leap towards teaching in 2016 by going to India and spending time in an Ashram where she immersed in all things Yoga and experienced profound transformational awakening. Albeit initially drawn in by the physical benefits of asana, which is still part of her every day practice, she now enjoys all the tools of yoga for achieving flow, for herself and her students.

Following her graduation from Trinity College in Hartford, CT, Alexa was ready to pursue a new passion in life. After dedicating the past 15 years of her life towards competitive ice hockey, she decided to hang up her skates and shift gears from a life of competition to one of self-discovery. At first, Alexa was immediately attracted to the physical demands of yoga, however, it wasn’t too long into her exploration that she discovered yoga as a guide to improve her overall wellbeing. Alexa has since completed her RYT 500 through YogaWorks and the Colorado School of Yoga. She is now employed as the Studio Director at O2 Aspen where she teaches a variety of classes focused around Integrated Vinyasa and Yin Yoga. In her role as a yoga teacher, Alexa’s goal is to spark self-awareness in her students and cultivate an immersion of yoga on their mats and into their everyday lives. She creates space for self-discovery, manifestation of intentions, and a connection between mind and body. With her thoughtful nature, Alexa is able to craft classes rooted in gratitude that consist of a balance between powerful, strong sequences and deep, mindful releases.
