A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME..

HI GUYS I'M ALEX

I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN NEW JERSEY, STUDIED NUTRITION AND FOOD SCIENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT AND THEN MOVED TO SUNNY CALIFORNIA TO PURSUE MY LOVE FOR YOGA.  AFTER MOVING TO LA, I COULDN'T LEAVE.  I LOVE BEING SURROUNDED BY SO MANY LIKEMINDED PEOPLE, PEOPLE WHO CARE AND VALUE HEALTH.  EVER SINCE MOVING HERE, I HAVE BEEN TEACHING YOGA AND GETTING INVOLVED IN ALL THINGS HEALTH AND WELLNESS.  WITH THE GROWTH OF SOCIAL MEDIA, EVERYWHERE WE LOOK WE ARE OVERLOADED WITH HEALTH TIPS, WORKOUTS, AMAZING BODIES, AND WELLNESS ADVICE.  IT IS HARD TO SEPARATE FROM ALL THE PERFECT THINGS WE SEE AND NOT COMPARE OURSELVES TO OTHERS.  WE WANT TO TRY ALL THE NEW WORKOUTS AND DIETS AND SUPPLEMENTS AND HALF THE TIME WE DON'T EVEN KNOW IF THE STUFF WILL WORK.  MY GOAL FOR THIS BLOG IS TO GO DEEPER, TO SHARE THE UPS AND THE DOWNS.  TO SHARE THE STRUGGLES I HAVE FACED WHEN IT COMES TO WANTING TO LOOK AND BE A CERTAIN WAY.  I WANT TO BE VULNERABLE AND OPEN UP AND HOPEFULLY INSPIRE OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.  I ALSO WANT TO SHARE MORE INFORMATION ON PRODUCTS AND COMPANIES THAT I LOVE AND SUPPORT.  LOVE YOU ALL <3
