Collection: Alexander Filmer-Lorch
Alexander's career began as a state-approved professional dancer at the John Cranko Ballet Academy in Stuttgart, from where he went on to dance at the German Opera House in Düsseldorf.
Following a back injury, which put an end to his dance career, Alexander decided to travel extensively to gain a deeper understanding of what animates the moving body and drives the mind. He studied the teachings of Eastern psychology and philosophy, yogic disciplines and meditation in the traditional one-to-one practice of teacher and student, throughout more than a decade of his life.
In the intervening years, Alexander's dedication and passion for working with people inspired him to follow the work of his teachers, simplifying complex philosophical teachings and translating them into a framework that meets the requirements of our modern times. In 2011, he founded 'Inside Meditation' a modern school of neutral thought in London, offering regular CPD and mentoring programs, as well as a comprehensive Yoga Alliance UK accredited 200/500-hour Meditation Teacher Training, and CMM - Programs for Corporates.
Alexander's first book 'Inside Meditation: In Search of the Unchanging Nature Within' which is a comprehensive analysis of the process, practice and science of meditation and eastern psychology, was published in July 2012.
Today Alexander guides and facilitates professionals, teachers and students at an international level. His work as a practitioner, mentor, author, lecturer and teacher is a synthesis of 30 years of experience in movement, yogic disciplines and meditation, applied philosophy and Eastern psychology, aiming to bring the body, mind and spirit to a natural state of meditative synthesis.
