Namaste My Name is Alicia.
I was lucky enough to be introduced to yoga at a young age, spending afternoons watching my Mother and Aunties practice yoga in the tropical heat of Darwin in the back yard on old blankets. As an Adult I practiced many styles of yoga for over 9 years to overcome mental health issues. I stumbled into my first Akhanda class and new this was where I was supposed to be. This holistic practice helped me heel and become hole.
I have been practicing for over 7 years and Akhanda yoga is now and will always be, a big part of my life. This has inspired me to go further with my practices and complete my 250 hours of Akhanda teacher training under my teacher and mentor Emmanuelle Brown, which has been life changing.
As an Akhanda Yoga teacher, I bring a nurturing, honest and playful teaching style to my classes. After many years of working in Community organisations, I look to bring people closer together in the Community through and beyond my practice.

Namaste! I have been a student of Yoga for 15 years and a teacher for 6. My Yoga journey began in 2002 when I sought out Yoga to deal with stress, anxiety and depression. I spent approximately 9 years as a student with the same teacher before she suggested I try Yoga teacher training.
I have continued to build on my skills as a Yoga teacher through regular professional development and have added Yoga Therapy, Yin and Restorative Yoga, Buddhism studies as well as Meditation training to my expertise. I travelled to India, the home of Yoga, in 2014 to deepen my understanding of the richness of Yoga. I teach a very mindful class incorporating the 8 limbs of Yoga and not focus solely on Asana (postures) but integrating the complexity of all that Yoga has to offer.
For years I have witnessed Yoga change, nourish and help people’s lives. The philosophy of Yoga has enriched my young years and now my early adulthood. It has brought a great sense of fulfilment and honour to be able to help those who have attended my classes.
In my classes you will be guided through a well balanced session integrating relaxation, meditation, pranayama (yogic breathing) and Asanas (Yogic postures/stretches). Catering for the newest beginner to the more advanced student.
