Alicia Barry is a happy yoga mutt!
From her first yoga class at the age of 47, she was hooked. Traveling all over the country to study with teachers of different disciplines, Alicia began a journey that would alter the trajectory of her life. In 2005 after being diagnosed with cancer for the second time, she knew that she was destined to share this life altering practice that not only physically supported her through treatment and recovery but, began to heal her life long emotional and psychic wounds.
As a teacher, Alicia hopes that you will share this journey of self -discovery, self –love and self- compassion . She has had the privilege of studying both yoga and meditation with teachers such as Jack Kornfield , Tara Brach, Gary Kraftzow, Elena Brower , Desiree Rumbaugh , Tias Little and Cora Wen.
It was her introduction to Yin Yoga and Buddhist meditation practices with Sarah Powers, however, that changed her perspective about teaching and practice . Sarahs’ teachings integrate compassionate inquiry through meditation , transpersonal psychology, modern Chinese medicine and asana.
"And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"
― Anais Nin
Alicia shares her other life with Peter, her hubby of 36 years, her two grown adored children Jordan and Lucas, one witty son-in-law Jon, one firecracker daughter-in-law Erika, one heaven sent angel 3 year old Grayson and three very furry , very entertaining human/doggies (they’re really human) Gracie, Sophie and Stella.
An advocate of yoga and meditation as a healing modality, she offers her time freely to women with cancer as her gift and honor and never forgets how precious life really is.
