Alexandra has a unique gift for using hand drumming, rhythm and movement for healing and wellness.

JOIN OUR GLOBAL HEART-CENTRED
Alexanda's love of rhythm and movement is infectious and she is a highly skilled and inspired drum and yoga teacher with a huge wealth of experience and insight to share. She is open, non-judgmental, passionate and caring. I have hired Alexandra many times to facilitate our yoga teachers' graduation ceremoney, and highly recommend her to anyone looking to begin or deepen their rhythm meditation and movement practice.
- Shakti Mhi (Founder, Prana Yoga College, Shakti Yoga Centre)
I love Alexandra's simple clean honest approach to the essence of yoga and drumming. Her attention to detail in her cueing guides you safely and keeps you focused throughout the practice. Her movement classes are both challenging and relaxing, allowing you to work from where you are at that moment in time. It has made a huge difference in my body. Even practicing with her once a week is addictive. The drumming is pure bliss and reminds me of South Africa where I was born.
- Janet Kimmel (Founder, The Align Method, Fitness Instructor and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Specialist)
Just want to let you know how helpful the drum meditation has been to me. My daughter has been extremely ill from complications from cancer. We have been completely taken up with her care. I have been far too anxious (and tired) to drive to live yoga or drum classes. The online rhythm meditations have been a life-saver for me. I am transported to a blissful place which allows me to let my anxiety go, for a while at least.….Thank YOU and please convey my thanks to the rest of the Rhythm Bliss team.
- Zandrika James
Alexandra manages to accommodate such a wide range of rhythm levels in her program. She creates a very safe environment to have fun with no fear of messing up. She is an excellent instructor.
- Anne Carten (Teacher)
She has a talent for combining yoga and drumming and encourages you to just be yourself and move. I suffer from anxiety and my psychiatrist actually prescribed drumming with Alexandra to me. Alexandra makes it so joyful and engaging, you feel like you can't make any mistakes. I am almost 80 and I LOVE it!
-Sheila Herman (Retired Teacher)
Alexandra is truly a bright light and when she teaches, one can not help catch the flame of inspirational fire which runs through her beat, singing voice and instruction, which is comprehensive and beautifully packaged.
- Ingrid Hauss (Yoga Instructor)
I had hesitated drumming this morning as I had a terrible back problem after ziplining yesterday. Today after drumming, I felt so much better. I don’t know if it was a combination of the drumming with the yoga, just the stretching or whether it was just chilling during drumming…………..whatever it was I have to say “thank you so much”. I cannot believe how much better I feel! Once again, thank you for everything, your time, your patience and your amazing abilities with both drumming and yoga.
- Lynn Smith (Retired Flight Attendant)
The benefits for me are pure delight and pleasure...and it's embodied. I just feel the smile from the inside. Alexandra is so passionate about drumming and yoga and it's infectious. When I'm drumming with Alexandra I feel "this is it", it doesn't get any better than this.
-Fran Alexander (Registered Clinical Counsellor)
I had a stroke that paralyzed my left side and left me with the remnants of shakiness and tremors, and I never thought that I’d be able to play any instruments. Alexandra's drum songs have spoken to my heart and apparently my frontal lobe, as well. I can now hold my fingers together and allow my joyful left hand to surprise me with its beautiful dance.
-Marianna Nemeth (Property Manager)
As a former dancer, professional hand drummer, and certified yoga instructor, Alexandra embodies kinaesthetic energy! Every time I do a movement practice with her, I feel as though I am not only benefitting from a beautiful yoga practice, but am also receiving important lessons in anatomy and physiology. Thanks to her brilliant instruction, I have embarked on a path of mindful movement that I hope will sustain me as my body copes with the effects of aging, stress and a 21st century sedentary lifestyle. I have never felt so motivated to move and stretch my body.
-Jenn Schecter (Communications Director, Teacher)

The Rhythm Bliss online program has helped me with balance and focus after experiencing vertigo. I so appreciate the effort and hard work they've put into making it such a great program. I love the brain gym exercises and the Rhythm Jams with the Rhythm Bliss band, as well as the grounding meditation with the didjeridoo.
