“Alicia is a very attentive, kind and inspirational teacher. She spread great vibes and energy in her class. She has the good words, the good timing, the good level. I’ve spent one month with her during my YTT, and her yin classes had a very important impact on me, helped my body to released deep tensions and let it go some emotions that were stuck in my body and my muscles. I wish I could have a yin teacher like her in my country. She’s the best!”
“One of the most important things for me in my practice (especially when choosing a training) is the connection you will have with the teacher. I actually took (what I considered to be) a risk, not knowing or having previously practiced with the teachers on my training. One of which, was Alicia. I was so lucky to be connected with someone who is full of warmth, authenticity, love and great humour, who I now get to call my friend. Her training and experience in Yin speaks for itself. You are in the best of hands in practicing or training with this wonderful human, on and off the mat!”
