Meet Alex: The Face Behind Figure and Form

Photo by Brian MacDonald ·

You’ve seen her at the front desk, smiling broadly, her mellow countenance radiating ease. If you are an early bird and attend Jason’s Mysore Ashtanga classes in the morning, you know her through her dedicated yoga practice. What many people don’t know about Alexandra Becker Black is her fantastic talent as a fine artist with a passion for the human form.

Alex has developed a large body of work that shows the beauty of the human form in asana. Obsessed with the human form since childhood, one of Alex’s earliest memories is that of her drawing a woman’s face. As she developed her figure work, she became interested in anatomy, musculature, and movement. Years later as she developed her own yoga practice, the merging of these two interests was a natural expression of her passion for figure and form.

We’re excited to see Alex develop her gifts and her willingness to share them with all of us. Here are just a few samples of Alex’s watercolors. For more examples of her work visit To contact Alex about her work or upcoming gallery shows, email her.
