Alicia Waters is an E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance. Currently residing in the lovely seaside town of Mousehole in southwest England, she leads local classes as well as international retreats and trainings. She has been teaching yoga since 2010 and has been studying and practicing avidly since 2005. She completed a 200 hour foundation training and a 300 hour advanced training in Vinyasa Yoga, both with Vidya Heisel and Jennifer Yarro of Frog Lotus Yoga. Any teacher must also be a life-long student, and Alicia has continued her studies with additional training in mantra, anatomy, philosophy, and more with such modern yoga luminaries as Sianna Sherman, Shiva Rea, Amy Ippoliti, Tiffany Cruikshank, Anandra George, and Jim Tarran.
Since the beginning of her teaching career, Alicia has had the great privilege of sharing yoga with diverse students in studios, universities, spas, and community centers all over the globe. Originally from the East Coast of the US, she spent two years living and teaching at Suryalila Yoga Retreat Center in southern Spain before moving to Cornwall in February 2015. She has traveled extensively with Frog Lotus Yoga Teacher Training Programs as faculty instructor.
She and her husband received a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) as a wedding gift in 2015 - on that fateful day, Alicia's love of SUP Yoga was born! Only a few months later, she completed the SUP Yoga certifcation from SUPFit, and now loves to share this amazing sport.
Alicia is known among her students for her clear instruction and joyful, encouraging demeanor. She is also certified in Thai Yoga Massage, which brings confidence and compassion to her physical adjustments. Her recipe for a great yoga class is to combine intelligent sequencing and consistent focus on the breath, then add total self-acceptance, a bit of inspiration, a dash of sweat, and a healthy dollop of humor.
