virtual teacher training
6 Weekends Online starting October 16th
This teacher training delves into the intersection of modern neuroscience and ancient spirituality. Deepen your understanding of your mind, thoughts and emotions as well as how to support them through the use of breathwork + meditation. You’ll also learn how to confidently and successfully share these tools with others.
The curriculum consists of neuroscience and philosophy lectures, technique workshops, and practice teaching sessions. (Scroll down for more info curriculum material + schedule).
All live lectures will be taught via Zoom with the replays available in our private Facebook Community. It’s in this community that you can connect with other trainees, ask questions and get unlimited support during our time together.
This training is for you if…
…you’ve cultivated a secret love affair with your own brain and are ready to put a ring on it.
….you are a teacher, coach, therapist, or health care practictioner looking to offer your community a new arsenal of mindfulness tools.
…you know you should be meditating every day, but can’t seem to sit your butt down to do it.
…you have absolutely no interest in teaching breathwork or meditation at all, but (not so) selfishly just want to learn more about them for your own practice.
Alex Nashton is endlessly inspired by the human brain’s ability to change itself. She believes that mindfulness practices are the best way to unravel the patterns of body and mind that keep us stuck in cycles of thought, negativity, and unnecessary pain. Her goal is to demystify the abstract and ethereal parts of this practice to make it relevant for you. Alex has studied extensively in the Ishta Yoga lineage and has taught in New York City, Los Angeles, and internationally. She is currently studying Neuroscience at UCLA to further support you unplugging from patterns of the past and create more joy.

Alex is unlike any other yoga and meditation teacher I’ve come across in all of my travels over 12 years taking classes across the world.
The way she mixes science and spirituality to create a synergy of groundedness and enlightenment is one of the reasons I’m so drawn to her teaching. She has the ability to intuitively create a beautiful and intentional experience for her clients based on her deep wisdom and understanding of the practice.
I could sing her praises all day–but you won’t truly understand until you meet her and get to feel her powerful, radiant, truly high vibrational presence yourself. If every person on the planet could just take one class–the world would be forever changed–lighter–more peaceful–more in tune.
