Meet Laura Alexich

Today we’d like to introduce you to Laura Alexich.

Laura, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I began my training as a ballet dancer in Santa Barbara, CA and continued much of my training and career as a ballerina in Claremont, CA. I am a freelance dancer and ballet teacher throughout the west coast. My true passion still lies in live stage performing, with companies like the San Francisco Opera and many smaller companies throughout the west coast. Living in LA I have also found a lot of opportunities in film, TV, commercials, and music videos as a ballerina. My day to day consists of teaching young talent ballet technique and artistry. I have a client list of over 40 students in Southern California that I coach and mentor on a daily basis. I have found that my true gift is mentoring young girls to be strong, healthy, athletically trained ballerinas.

My most current venture and business that goes along with my dance and teaching businesses is Young Living Essential Oils distributor. As a dancer, our bodies go through so much to stay in tip-top shape, and focusing on preventing injuries and pain is a huge part of our job every single day. I was introduced to Young Living last year (2017) by a dear friend and current Young Living distributor. The choice to join Young Living’s team was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The extensive amount of products this company has to offer for people like me (dancers, athletes etc..) is incredible! And the bonus is it is all natural, chemical, and toxins free!

My goal is to introduce this amazing company to as many dancers, friends, family, and just well anyone I can so that they all can start to live a more chemical free lifestyle in all aspects of their lives. I believe that stopping chemicals and toxins from entering homes IE; over the counter soaps, painkillers, vitamins, air freshers, pain creams the list goes on… We can prevent more injuries, cancer, and health problems faster! This new chapter of business along with dance and teaching has changed my perspective on health and body awareness and I want to share it with anyone and everyone!

Has it been a smooth road?
My road has definitely been a tough one from the start. I grew up in a very poor dysfunctional family. Due to this dynamic, it was difficult to accomplish many of the things I wanted to as a kid. However, I did have many people along the way who helped and encouraged me when obstacles arose. The three top obstacles I ran into and still do are financial, injury, and getting people to see my hard work and talent for my businesses.

I started working with a small ballet company at the age of 18, living paycheck to paycheck. With this type of work, you’re always prepared to work many jobs at a time just to move up in this business and prove your hard work and dedication to the art. Injuries are always coming up, which can set you back many steps. I have had so many over the years, that I’ve worked through and have stopped me from working completely.

Small story… In 2015 I was hired to dance in my first opera with the San Francisco’s Opera. It was one of the biggest opportunities I had ever gotten as a dancer and I was extremely honored. About 3 weeks into the ob, I injured my foot. I was not sure what it was but kept working through it. 3 months later, once the opera finished, I went to get an X-ray on my foot. I was told I had fractured my foot and that it was best to take a break from dancing for at least 10 weeks. I was really sad and couldn’t believe I had muscled through such a strong injury.

Because the competition is so high in the career, I didn’t want to let the job pass through my fingers. Going forward, I am so thrilled to have found another passion that can go along my dancing and teaching businesses. Young Living has given me the knowledge to now help other dancers and my young ballet students work through pain, emotional distress and all other aspects of their lives. I’m so thankful I have this new skill set and business to help not only myself but everyone I come in contact with.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Laura Alexich – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I really have three businesses that coincide alongside each other. I am a professional ballet dancer, professional ballet teacher, and Young Living oils distributor. I dance with many small ballet companies throughout the West Coast, as well as teach over 40 students ballet technique and the skills they need to become professional ballet dancers, and my newest business is educating and exciting people on how to incorporate oils and oil-based products into their lives to live a more chemical-free and abundant life.

I am known for my dedication to detail as a technical ballet dancer and teacher. I give the students the base training they need to have impeccable ballet technique and artistry to accomplish their dreams as a dancer and artist. The same training I have been given for myself I now pass on to my young dancers. With young Living, I am a product of the product. I live a life above the wellness line by actually using all the products in my own life, from cleaning products, oils, and supplements.

This way I am able to really have knowledge of the products I’m talking about to the people ready to live an all clean abundant lifestyle. I believe what sets me apart, is that I live by all the things I offer in my businesses, technique, attention to detail, and living a totally chemical free lifestyle.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I really love Pasadena, because it offers a city like feel as well as a quiet suburban atmosphere. It allows me to run into so many different people from all different walks of life. Pasadena has great restaurants, hangouts, and shopping. It offers culture with places like the Huntington Gardens and the Norton Simon Museum which makes it a great place for everyone. The thing I like least is probably that there isn’t a strong ballet company in the area. I feel that this is definitely a town that would embrace the art form if they had the chance.
