Alicia Patrice, Yoga Instructor, RYT

Kent, OH

About AliciaThe path that brought me to yoga begins in a community education class in Athens, Ohio. That was in about 1993 and I’ve seen yoga benefit my life beyond comprehension. Curiosity influences my teaching, allowing my classes to have a flow that doesn’t quite fit into any one style. My classes are known to be sweet, but also challenging in ways both physical and mental.  To me, yoga isn’t just a physical practice, it is something more than that.  Every person defines “more than that” in their own way and that’s part of what makes it all beautiful.  I also lead Kirtan, the call-and-response chanting of yoga, with my band Radiant Friend and offer private sessions in yoga, harmonium and singing as spiritual practice. I have done in-depth study with Sean Johnson, Jason Crandell and Sarah Powers, and have attended many different workshops. Recently, I have been utilizing my musical talents in Sound Baths and Sound Meditation.
