Alex Auder, director of Magu Yoga, was recently included on a list of America's 100 most influential yoga teachers (she was in the top 25!): Alex is a native New Yorker who grew-up in the Chelsea Hotel with her mother, Viva (an Andy Warhol Superstar), and her sister, the actress, Gaby Hoffmann. She is very excited to bring her 20 years of teaching experience (almost half of her life!) to Philadelphia. Known as one of NYC’s preeminent teachers, she has developed a keen eye and a genuinely authentic and original voice. She began her teaching career in 1996 at Jivamukti Yoga Center and at her own studio in Rhinebeck, NY (now Satya Yoga). During her years in Upstate NY, she studied closely with her Vedanta teacher, Shubraji, who continues to deeply influence her teaching and her practice.
Over the last 10 years Alex had been teaching out of her own studio in the WestVillageYoga (critics pick in NY Magazine) and as a senior teacher at Kula Yoga Project until she recently moved to Mt Airy.
Informed by her study of Iyengar Yoga, Kula Yoga, and the work of Nevine Michaan (among others), her classes are known for her ability to gracefully integrate clear and precise alignment cues, intelligent sequencing, Vedanta, and generous amounts of masterful hands-on assists.
Alex also teaches a monthly "Master Class" at Kula Yoga in Williamsburg, BK, leads the sections of Kula Yoga's advanced TT and 200 hour TT called: "Relevant Dharma Talk" & "The Art of Adjustments," is a mentor in the new Wanderlust TT, and co-leads a summer retreat at Kripalu.
