Alexandra Castro is a passionate mindfulness coach who values authentic connection, personal growth, and open and safe communication. She believes that we are on this earth to come soul-to-soul and help each other become the most authentic version of ourselves. In addition, she is a firm believer that the quality of our life depends on the quality of our relationships – and most importantly, the ones we have with ourselves.
In her early twenties, Alexandra was haunted by a feeling of emptiness, a void she knew she needed to fill. She was living in fear, not being truthful to herself about her sexuality, and abandoning her authentic self. Then, after falling in love with a mindful woman who opened the doors to the world of spirituality, the healing started. She began to peel back the layers of conditioning from society, religion, and her family and reunite with the soul of who she truly is. The void was finally filling.
Her healing journey taught her new ways of thinking and being in the world. She acknowledges that personal growth is a daily practice and emphasizes the importance of progress, not perfection. Through spirituality and mindful practice, Alexandra feels a deeper connection with humanity, the earth, and a desire to connect with her community.
Alexandra now leads a mindfulness group and offers one-on-one coaching sessions for queer people in San Francisco to teach what she’s learned. She serves the queer community who have been generally underrepresented in the mindfulness space, offering a safe space to heal and connect.
