Alex Toenniges is a 24-year-old Feldenkrais Method teacher and bassoonist. She also teaches youth programs in wilderness skills and nature connection at The Wild Nature Project. When she’s not teaching Feldenkrais, playing bassoon, or teaching forest school, Alex reads voraciously, takes on projects to build and improve Green Acres, dances Argentine tango, and spends time with her Green Acres family.
Alex has been living at Green Acres since December 2017 after studying bassoon at Ball State University (Muncie, IN) and Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ) and growing up near Detroit, Michigan. Alex is a learner and teacher at heart, a strong leader and entrepreneur, and cares deeply about her friends, family, and the Earth. Her interest is in finding a happier, healthier, more connected way to live and sharing that with others and the next generation.
