Alicia Hansen began dabbling in yoga in college as a part of a newly found healthy lifestyle and weight loss journey. As a theater major at Baldwin-Wallace College, she gravitated toward vinyasa yoga and how it allowed her to find another way to express her creativity. Alicia earned her 200-hour certification in 2012. She is honored to continue her path as a teacher under the guidance of Sandy Gross as a part of the staff at Evolution Yoga School & Practice Space on Cleveland’s East side. Her classes provide a well-rounded, complete practice while sharing concepts that can be applied during a yoga class or in the world outside. She has the tendencies to speak in hashtags, to play John Mayer slow jams and to offer plenty of variations. In the spring of 2014, Alicia enrolled in the ParaYoga Master Training Program.  She has spent more than one hundred hours in advance training sessions with ParaYoga’s founder, Yogarupa Rod Stryker.

To register for classes or workshops, visit the Evolution Yoga website.

Private Sessions Available

Private instruction is available for any level yogi: if you’re just starting out, trying to advance your studies, or just looking for a change of pace from how you normally practice.  If you live in the Greater Cleveland area, I’d love to arrange to meet you for private instruction to help you take the next step on your yogic learning path.

Private sessions include a yoga class featuring asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath work) and meditation. Each session includes a 45-90 minute instruction period and a personalized “homework” — AKA a customized home practice for you to continue learning between sessions.

Pricing varies depending on length of session, number of people, mileage (for longer distances). I’m happy to provide a quote, as well as offer discounted pricing for purchasing a package of classes.
