Welcome to LOVELifeyoga®!
Alec Vishal Rouben is inspired to have stumbled upon a path of service! Having his first yoga practice through the Vinyasa system, breath became the key to finding inner contentment in life, staged through mindfulness. His personal practice reveals strong gems on how to move towards mastery in his unique offering of yoga to the world, influencing fellow brothers and sisters, while receiving wisdom from his Community. Although he is in the first decade of practice, he feels an unbounded dedication to cultivating a continued state of Study, as he comes to understand the nature of life through the lens of Yoga. Alec immediately dove into Bhakti, or devotion, for the sense of peace that has come from a committed practice, relieving the defeating waves of depression, confusion, and anxiety that life seems to produce.
Alec has completed a 7 month journey of living in London, pursuing a Masters Degree in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation. Up until September of 2018, he will be writing a second thesis, based on the search for integrity in Yoga! His personal practice and teachings are based off of the student-teacher relationship. Bringing an unparalleled charismatic energy to his classes, he demands a level of attention that pierces through any distraction. Having a capable body and practice, he holds an understanding that is rare, providing extremely descriptive guidance for practitioners of all level to experience the practice of yoga.
He believes when we go to 'public classes' it acts like a mini Study-of-the-Self Session, then we take what is learned back home and integrate it into a personal practice on your mat. This is what his offerings are based off of. From starting with Vinyasa and moving into a firm Ashtanga Practice, then slowly evoling towards an Iyengar Based Supportive Practice of stillness. His offerings of Yoga in the classroom transcend the norm of what we might think an asana class 'should' look like. With a strong relationship around Pranayama, Meditation, Stories of the Hindu Mythics in which Yoga is rooted in, you can expect to to learn a great deal of understanding around Yogaasanas, Alec is here to share with you, LOVELiFEyoga®!
Alec Bows to his Teachers. A Strong String of Yoga Teachers in Colorado Introduced Alec to Yoga Through Power Vinyasa in 2012. Richii Jai was amongst the first teachers he looks up to!
