An Empathy Partner

The breath can be an accelerator, brake, stabilizer and even - a compass...

 It can give us energy when we are low, it can settle us when we are wired, and balance the nervous system when we are overwhelmed. It lets us know what nervous system state we are in through its location, quality and cadence. We breathe about 20,000 breaths a day — most of those outside our conscious awareness. It takes daily practice to cultivate a relationship to the breath but with practice, our breath can become an ally and companion through the waves of life.

We will take a deep dive into the nervous system. You will learn how to teach individual breaths and how to sequence breaths for a variety of ailments like:
  • insomnia
  • traumatic stress (anxiety, depression, panic)
  • triggers
  • anger and boundary work
  • grief
  • constipation
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • and more...
*PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ BELOW BEFORE COMMITTING.*
 
This apprenticeship is ideal for therapists, healing practitioners, yoga therapists and yoga teachers who have been practicing consistently for several years.
 
The ideal participants are humans who:
 
  • want to teach breathwork and harness the breath for personal and collective transformation.
  • want to deepen their own practice and learn how to guide others to breathe. 
  • have had or currently have a daily practice for a year or more or who is ready to commit to daily practice. 
  • who are longing to liberate themselves from cultural and ancestral conditioning
 
**This apprenticeship is a big commitment. The daily practice is essential to the learning. Please consider if this is the right time in your life for this kind of deep work.
 
This work is deep because it asks you to show up to yourself (with the support of the breath and community) every damned day. It asks you to feel whatever is alive in the now: the stuckness, the anxiety the overwhelm, the pain, the humanity, the community, and the ever abiding love that's always here in the stillness. 
 
In addition to the daily practice being a big commitment, I have a strong request that you only signup if you can commit to coming to the webinars and process groups live. Missing one webinar in the series and watching the recording can be arranged. Please reach out if you have scheduling conflicts before signing up.**
 
The schedule is below.

Warm Welcome,


My name is Alicia. I have been consciously practicing the breath for 20 years in my personal and professional practice, using it as a tool to support clients with symptom mitigation and root level healing.

As a yoga therapist, Adjunct Faculty at MUIH in their Master's of Yoga Therapy program,  psychotherapist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner- I work with people as multidimensional beings to shift nervous system states and heal trauma. My work is informed by Buddhist philosophy, Hinduism and my relationship to the Earth.

I am committed to regenerative practices, local community resiliency and loving ourselves and each other back to wholeness as an act of collective liberation. If you would like to know more about my somatic psychotherapy work, you can click here.

"I don't think anything has been as impactful for my overall well being...like ever. Alicia's Breathwork Apprenticeship and the daily Breathwork practices have helped me better connect with myself and others. It's inspired me to work differently with my clients and students and honestly, Alicia is just really lovely to sit and listen to." 

Carrie Dennison, Yoga Teacher Trainer and Rieki Master

"Alicia's Breathwork Apprenticeship has been revolutionary for me both professionally and personally. She has helped me safely explore and inhabit my body in a completely new way by helping me tap into our body's most powerful tool, the breath. Her incredible wisdom and tender guidance is soul quenching. It is so apparent that she takes incredible care when curating this apprenticeship. Her approach is gentle, thoughtful and trauma informed. It has been an honor to sit and breathe, laugh, cry and hold joy and grief alongside so many other beautiful humans during these last 6 months. I cannot recommend it enough!" 

Amanda Phelan, LCSW-C

"I have been breathing with Alicia for over a year and have been an apprentice for 9 months.The Apprenticeship has helped me regulate in a new and deeper way. It's one thing to be mindful, it's another to know how to breathe functionally and use the breath to change the way I am feeling. This work is profound. Coming into deep relationship with my breath has been so incredibly useful. It has been life changing on every level."

Travis Wanner, Advanced Level SEP, Somatic Coach

"Alicia's daily breathwork and apprenticeship program has absolutely transformed my overall health and wellness. Thanks to these last six months, I now have a rich toolkit of breaths available when I'm fatigued, anxious, or need to work out the stiffness in my joints. More than that, though, I also have a community and a sense of belonging.

I have returned to my natural state of being thanks to this practice of attuning to my breath!" 

Safrianna Loughna, LCPC

"I feel blessed to have been part of daily breath work practice with Alicia for the past year. It’s a unique experience to be gently and expertly guided into the body, accompanied by breath and in concert with others. I would call it the ultimate nervous system daily tune up, with the benefits that last throughout the day. I loved the structure of a daily routine, with flexibility built in to breathe in a way that suits my needs. Alicia is a gifted teacher with a big heart, with years of practice and ages of wisdom to share."
 
Julie McCarter, LCSW

 

 "Alicia is a treasure among treasures. I feel incredibly grateful to have found her. She brings breadth and depth to her teachings, drawing from an impressive array of traditions and approaches including Yoga, Qigong, Somatic Experiencing, and Parts Work, to name a few. I am often astounded by her knowledge, and wisdom in drawing upon that knowledge. How can one person hold so much? Alicia's background as a Trauma Therapist combined with her profound empathy allows her to bring highly skilled safety and attunement to the Breathwork Practices. She creates a container that allows for grounded trust, expansion and transformation, a rare combination. I consider it to be a real privilege to be one of Alicia's students and a member of her Breathwork Sangha."
 
Sara Silvia, Therapist

 

"I can’t say enough about Alicia and about this program. To share this container and community is so incredibly special and I am so grateful! The apprenticeship is full of practical knowledge that I know I can take with me into not only my personal practice, but my practice as a therapist as well. Knowledge of the breath and regular practice has made me a better clinician, a better partner, and a more connected human. This program has been a breath of fresh air that I didn’t even know I needed. Thank you Alicia!"

Nicole Sparrow, Therapist, Reiki Master
