Alexandra Denkinger, Acupuncture Therapist (M.D.Acu), Yoga teacher and inspired Body-Mind-Soul Bio-Hacker, dedicated to help people empower themselves to live the most authentic, healthy life possible.
As an all-time seeker on a soul-searching journey she travelled the the globe and came in touch with many different healing systems and yoga styles. Eventually she moved from Germany to India to immerse herself in Ayurveda and Yoga nearly two decades ago.
Alexandra hosts Nature Adventure Retreats, where she loves to take a group of people to outstanding locations and/ or to engage in nature activities like Trekking in Ladakh, Surfing in Sri Lanka, Bouldering in Hampi or Stand Up Paddle Board Excursions & SUP Yoga in Goa. Besides these active, fun-loving events her main passion is the immersion in Yin Yoga Therapy Trainings, Mindfulness Practices and Healing & Transformation Retreats and Workshops.
In her Yin Yoga teachings she integrates the ancient wisdom of Acupuncture Meridians and Chi flow in a meditative Yoga practice. In a Daoist/ Zen way, the focus is the on the value of breath, insight & intuition – supporting a lifestyle that feels in alignment with our deepest self.
Alexandra runs the Body-Mind-Soul Centre in Mandrem, Goa (located at Aura Retreat www.auragoa.com), were she offers counseling sessions and a variety of holistic treatments. Here she looks at the patient’s whole system, environmental, emotional and physical. She breaks down complex theories from different healing systems into digestible chunks for use in our daily life and offers practical information and encouragement to feel healthy, vital, joyful and free.
Alexandra about herself:
”I like to see myself as a Body-Mind-Soul Bio-hacker. I counsel people and I help to heal their wounds. Physical, but mostly emotional. I did not intend to do this. When it came to me though, I knew it is my calling. I am passionate about it.
For me healing ourselves is our responsibility and an expression of environmental activism. We are healing the world by healing ourselves. And healing is actually very simple, it is an uttermost natural thing. Of course not everything can be healed, but most things thought incurable can be. Every organism has a basic instinct to be healed.
Energy flows where attention goes. I believe the good life is a matter of mind and soul and open to everyone. The body never lies. I listen, look and reflect to help you to activate your own healing abilities.
My goal is to empower you to live the most authentic, healthy life possible. A life that feels in alignment with your deepest self. Nothing brings me more joy than to watch this happen.
I live and work with dedication, extraordinary intention and the spirit of liberation from convention”.
Since she can remember Eva Lisanne Brouwer has been deeply fascinated by life, the body and health. This interest brought her early in her life to explore alternative medicine, bodywork, naturopathy and body-mind awareness.
A body aficionado, always her passion is for the quiet practices. Besides being a compassionate yoga teacher and massage therapist, she is also our Reiki and Yoga Nidra expert.
In her early twenties Eva left the Netherlands and started travelling to further explore and broaden her experience. This brought her to body/mind/emotional awareness training with horses in Australia and various retreats and courses on awareness and the body around the world.
The love for living and exploring life from a place of truth with this very moment as all we have and its never ending depths and beauty is what keeps deeply moving her as a main priority in life. Eva’s passion for awareness, yoga, massage and the several forms of bodywork come from her own experience with these tools for nurturing a deep sense of peace, healing and wellbeing.
Eva currently spends most of her time in North Goa, India. During the Goa monsoon months she travels and loves to visit Europe, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Australia.
Eva about Yin Yoga:
“If I would have to choose, Yin Yoga is my absolute favorite form of Yoga. It allows me to slow down and consciously embrace the present moment while including and deeply nourishing the body.”
