My favorite yoga teacher!! She teaches Anusara with passion, cheer, and infectious energy. Her teaching style ranges from heartfelt to playful. She challenges her students while keeping the class accessible and welcoming to all ability levels. She always begins class with a lesson or something to meditate on during our practice. She uses metaphor very well. I love going to Alice’s classes. She focuses on alignment, heart opening and living in our bodies.
Yoga with Alice really is as good as it gets. She gives students individual attention to help them align properly, even in large class settings. She focuses just as much on strengthening as flexibility and my strength has increased exponentially since I’ve started attending her classes regularly. In her private sessions she assesses your body to help you learn how to use it better on an everyday basis. She shows you what exercises are most important for alleviating nagging pains or preventing them. As a massage therapist, I use my body for work, and I am susceptible to injury. I credit Alice and the combination of stretching and strengthening in her classes to keeping me injury free! She’s that good!
Alice is an amazing instructor, she is a gem that is hard to find nowadays. I have been to different yoga classes, many physical therapy sessions and aerobic classes, but they all didn’t seem to help much on my painful back and shoulders. I am very pleased that I have private sessions with Alice. She is a good observer, and works by intuition. She is able to make me physically stronger and go to work with less pain and injury. Bonus, she is very fun and yet philosophical. I have a great time in her private sessions. Thanks Alice :)))
