The Team



My name is Alexis Priester and I’m so excited to join the BK Yoga Club family! I’ve been practicing yoga for a long time but have really deepened my practice within the last three years or so. When I’m not working on my wheel pose, I work in production and social media management and love hosting dinner parties, getting to the beach whenever the weather allows, hanging out with my dogs (and everyone else’s dogs), and seeing local bands.
