    A unique opportunity in learning about the Self on a much deeper level, especially guided by one of the best teacher duo I’ve come across yet. I recommend this course to those who are interested in spirituality in the non-trendy way. Give it a try and you may find some gold nuggets here!

  • Higher Yoga Academy
    Tanner

    The course is for people courageous enough to decondition their long held beliefs and experiences that lay at the root of suffering. Rather than indulging the 5 senses, Christiaan and Alex guide you through a deep internal pursuit to find a lasting peace. It's hard work, but I'd recommend Higher Yoga Academy to everyone dedicated to Self-Realization!

*What is Meditation Alignment Session? 

Practicing Yoga, we are often more focused on adjustments of the body, forgetting where the most important adjustments should be happening.

When we adjust in asanas we aim to place every limb in a particular way to open up energy channels in the body… same goes in the mind - we need to concentrate the mind in a certain way to navigate through obstacles and distractions that block the psychic energy flow keeping us from connecting with the Heart and realizing our essence nature.

Alex offers a unique service providing private sessions for proper alignment of the mind. He helps to adjust it through one-on-one guided meditation via Zoom in order to remove inner blockages and help make significant progress in your practice.
