ALEX SLAWSON

Hometown? Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Favorite music artist or band? I love Kygo but in terms of hip hop music my favorite are Lil Wayne and Drake. 

Dream vacation? I want to travel everywhere but my top places right now are Bali and Thailand. 

Favorite post yoga snack? A green juice or acai bowl really hits the spot. 

A quote you love? “Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.” - Rumi

Personal mantra? Always be yourself and love yourself. I believe if you stay true to who you are and what you stand for you will always attract the right things. 

How did you get into yoga? My mom suggested I try a yoga class in high school and I’ve been practicing ever since. 

Favorite time of day to get your practice in? I’m a freak and wake up without an alarm around 6:30/7 so I love to practice in the morning. There’s nothing better than starting your day with yoga! 

What's your favorite part of Y7? Definitely all the amazing people at Y7! But I also love that there are no mirrors and the room is dark. I think it creates a comfortable environment for you to turn your awareness inward and focus on your own practice.
