Rhythm of a Yoga Warrior Goddess

Why this yogi loves water, crop tops and travel

When we spot a bohemian babe whose love of yoga and free-spirit style echoes ours, we are compelled to learn more. Alex Franklin, aka Yoga Warrior Goddess, is one of these powerfully beautiful women. Here's how she finds her rhythm...


What is the first thing you do when you wake up?

Usually teach! I am an early bird and teach mostly 6am classes, but before I teach, I have coffee - always.


How would you describe your personal style?

I definitely have a bohemian flair that reflects my yoga/wanderlust lifestyle. When I am not in spandex of some variety or a bikini teaching and practicing yoga, you will find me more often then not in short cutoff shorts and a crop top in the summer and jeans and ankle boots in the winter.  I love to support small designers, companies, and boutiques and people who are passionate about what they do.


Where is your favorite place to go to connect with nature and why?

The beach - on the ocean. Warm or cold, rain or shine. There is something very calming and meditative about waves, the sound of water and the feeling of infinite possibility when you see nothing but ocean in the distance. We are mostly water, born from a watery place and need water to survive - it seems natural we would be drawn to it. Pretty sure I should have been a mermaid.


What activity stirs your creativity most?

Travel. Nothing sparks my creativity more than experiencing a new culture, meeting new people, and looking at life from a different perspective.  


What makes you feel the most connected with people?

Teaching yoga, nothing makes me more connected then sharing yoga, energy and love with my community. 


How do you stay healthy?

Yoga (asana and mediation), eating moderately (lots of veggies and fruit), getting to bed at a decent hour, and making time for myself. 


What does success mean to you?

Happiness! Above all, if I am happy I am successful. 


What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?

Tell my boyfriend I love him. 


What is your must-have Stelari item?

Agate Yoga Kimono! Perfect to wear out (with my cutoffs and crop top of course). or post class!
