A Modern Twist on the Spiritual Journey

Breaking tradition as much as possible, Lex Smith is a 27-year-old 500-RYT Yoga Alliance instructor based in Columbus, Ohio. She received her teacher training through the Yoga On High Teacher Training Institute in Columbus under mentors Marcia Miller and Michele Vinbury. She has studied with notable names in the industry including Kino McGregor, Jason Crandell, Lorin Roche, Dandapani, Ray Long, and David Keil. Lex holds a focus in Vinyasa, Hatha, Restorative, Meditation, and Trauma Sensitive yoga while encouraging students that they do not need to be “fixed”. Lex utilizes grounding, creativity, willpower, compassion, communication, intuition, and divine energy as pathways to living a better life.

As a teenager and into her early 20’s, Lex was struggling to find her identity in the modern world while at the same time not falling victim to the rat race of American society. Having never been involved in sports, or any physical activity for that matter, Lex was tired of constant aches and pains that the stresses of day to day living caused. Not caring if she embarrassed herself, she took the first step into a hot yoga studio after hearing “yoga is good for you.” That’s where the love story began. Today she is inspired by finding a balance between a 5000-year-old lineage of teachings and adopting practices that are suitable for the 21 century. 

“All my teachings have given me an opportunity to inspire others to be their true authentic self. I do not pretend to be all-knowing or hold the highest wisdom. My offering to this world is my knowledge of what I know to be true for myself so that others might be encouraged to heal and stand in their power. I am not the guru, I am simply the girl who holds a light.”

Early Stages

I got into yoga as a way to change my body from the outside. What I didn’t realize was the powerful shift of my mind and how I see the world. A practice that soon became a lifestyle morphed into a passion. I began to teach what I know—transformation. 

Career Start

With intense training in anatomy and philosophy for practical application of yoga in the modern world I have built a foundation of teaching that allows me to build community, focus, motivation, trust, and self-inquiry among those in the practice. With much gratitude I learn everyday from my students.
