BSc Biochemistry, Certified Yoga & Meditation Teacher, Professional Dancer & Choreographer
Alessandra is a curious, electric and joyful soul, whose life's mission is to inspire others to dream big and live a life filled with passion! Originally from Ottawa, Canada, Stenta now permanently resides in Los Angeles, California following her life-long passions of dance, entertainment, fitness, and wellness.
Stenta grew up dancing in her mom's studio, and was first introduced to the practice of mental wellness over 10 years ago while completing her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry.
"At the time, I was completing my Biochemistry degree and had just been accepted to Dentistry school. That was a huge goal for me, except, once I got it, I wasn’t happy at all. Life hit me like a ton of bricks, and for the first time in my life, I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do.
I always loved science, but knew that dentistry was not my life’s calling. I graduated with my Biochemistry degree, and to everyone’s disapproval, declined Dentistry school. I was lost. I started searching for answers in spirituality, and became very intrigued with yoga, meditation, and the power of the mind. I spent 2 months in India training to become a yoga instructor and diving deep into its spiritual teachings.
The more I learned of spirituality, the mind, the chakra system, and energy work, the more I saw how all these concepts are related to science and the biochemical systems of our body. I began to see that my two passions, Science & Spirituality are intrinsically related. I grew obsessive in researching scientific journals on neuroscience, and neuroplasticity, and how these concepts relate to mental wellness, and our endless abilities as humans.
All these teachings and practices have completely changed my life. They allowed me to uncover my true self, and my true desires. Now I am pursing my life long passions of dance, fitness, entertainment, and wellness!
I've accomplished some of my greatest ambitions and have danced with some of the biggest names and brands in the music and entertainment industry, including Snoop Dogg, Meghan Trainor, Paris Hilton, J Balvin, Rich the Kid, Roddy Rich, Adidas, Disney, Beachbody and 20th Century Fox’s American Horror Story, just to name a few.
It is our life’s mission to shine! There is immense strength and power in each of us; it’s up to us to realize it!"
