Greetings from Cleveland, Ohio!
Hello there! I’m Alicia. I’m a Cleveland-area mom, once-a-week blogger, linen-loving event professional, on-sabbatical yoga teacher & full-time #crazydoglady.
My blog (formerly Poise in Parma) started back in 2009 as a chronicle of my journey towards maintaining a 100 pound weight loss and a healthy balance while enjoying all that Cleveland has to offer. As time passes, it’s included a lot more than just that single theme.
Today, it celebrates all of Northeast Ohio and all of the things me and my family (including my husband, daughter and two Golden Retrievers) experience all around town. That usually includes anything from:
– cooking at home to eating out
– group fitness classes or getting active outside
– feeling confident as a parent to #ihavenoideawhatIamdoing
– teaching yoga or job loving on my full time job as an an event professional / marketer
– being a complete Type A+ to going with the flow (and being 100% okay with either)
In additional to blogging for my own site, I am a contributor to both the Playhouse Square’s Behind-the-Curtain blog and the Cleveland Plus’ Be The Plus Blog.
Want to know more about my local yoga classes, as well as specialty classes, private sessions and events. Learn more about my teaching schedule at my Yoga page.
