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 came across many different yoga styles and healing systems. She moved from Germany to India to immerse herself in Ayurveda and Yoga nearly two decades ago. Life unfolded, she became a mom and took a break. But eventually she returned to her practice full time. She is on a mission to help people experience optimal health and long lasting transformation.
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 & Yoga in Goa.
Besides these active, fun-loving events her main focus is on Yin Yoga, Mindfulness Practices and Healing& Transformation Retreats and Workshops. She facilitates Yin Yoga Therapy Teacher trainings.
In her Yin Yoga Sessions 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. Our Meridian energy flow gets stimulated and we activate our body’s own healing powers. We refresh, rejuvenate and activate our life force. Suitable for all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to all dynamic exercises or more active styles of yoga.
In addition to regular Yin Yoga and Mindfulness classes she offers Yoga for Beginners, Zen Yoga, Yang-Yin Yoga as well as classic HathaYoga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes and likes to mix thing up a bit.
You are also welcome to join one of her Group Acupuncture Sessions where a limited number of participants receive an Acupuncture Treatment. The focus is on different themes suitable for everyone like Chi Energy Boosting, Yin-Yang Balance, Relaxation & Rejuvenation or Immune System Activation. Here specific points on the body get stimulated with sterile, disposable needles to activate the body’s own healing powers.
Alexandra runs the Body-Mind-Soul Centre in Mandrem, Goa, 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 powers.
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.
I intend to do just this and want to inspire others to do the same, creating a world of free-willed, sensible people to better our life’s and the planet."
