The last 20 years have been dedicated to her lifelong passion, Yoga. She has trained at the Kripalu Institute where she earned certification as a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist (600 Hours).

Alicia’s style has been greatly influenced by the work of BKS Iyengar. A good warm up, flow, pace with intelligent sequencing form the base of her yoga instruction. Her contagious enthusiasm, warmth, and sense of humor make everyone feel as if they were born to do yoga.

"The joy for me in teaching yoga is that students come for the workout– and they leave with so much more." 

founder of Yoga Studio 6 LIC, isn’t happy unless her students are happy. That’s her goal for every student in every class – no matter what their shape, size or experience level -- and her extensive training and encouraging spirit make it happen.
