About me

Location Longmont, CO, United States
Introduction Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Alejandra has lived in Colorado since 2000. Her first Spanish teaching opportunity came when she met her future husband in Buenos Aires and supported his intensive language studies in-country. Once Alejandra relocated to Colorado, married and became mother of two children, she continued her teaching practice by creating a bilingual preschool in 2005. Throughout preschool and elementary, Alejandra developed many fun and educational activities through which to deliver both basic language and cultural lessons to her kids. Her other motivation for teaching Spanish was to meet people from all over the world who are interested in learning her language. Since 2012, Alejandra has volunteered her enthusiastic leadership to a local Spanish conversation group and observes that many Americans, Europeans and native Spanish speakers have a strong interest in sharing their experiences in Spanish language and Latino culture. She immediately began offering individual and group conversational Spanish classes to mature teens and adults.
Interests Alejandra discovered yoga as a way to achieve peace and balance in her personal life, far from her cultural roots. This journey has since become a much larger trajectory to help her Latin community discover this wonderful path of finding harmony in body, mind and spirit. Alejandra Russell is a 2014 graduate from Full Circle Yoga in Longmont, certified to instruct yoga and additionally offers these same classes in Spanish language.
