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.
- traumatic stress (anxiety, depression, panic)
- anger and boundary work
- and more...
- 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
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 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!"
