Alexa Lim Haas

Alexa Lim Ruiz Haas is a multidisciplinary story artist and teacher from New York City and works primarily as a filmmaker. She was introduced to yoga as a teenager in 2005 and never forgot the first time she experienced quiet in body and mind, a rarity for a child of Manhattan! From 2012 to 2014 she worked with Reach Within which teaches trauma-informed yoga and self-regulation techniques to the caregivers and children of group homes in Grenada. It wasn’t until an animation-induced back injury in 2018 that Alexa began a new chapter of a disciplined daily yoga practice. In 2023 she completed a 500HR teacher training with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee at The Yoga Shanti. 
Alexa teaches poetic sequences that cultivate alignment and a deep state of awareness, intuition and imagination. Two of her favorite Sanskrit words are Svadhyaya (Self-Study) and Lila (Play), and she aims to encourage yoga as a tool for inspiration, self-expression and self-discovery.
