Her career as an instructor began by mentoring in an Iyengar Style Therapeutic Yoga class at the Canadian Yoga Institute with Aleyna Sheradha. She then went on to take her training in Traditional Yoga at Yoga Vidya Gurukul University in Nasik, Maharashtra, India.
Continuing to teach at various yoga studios in Lethbridge, Alberta, Alecia's heart turned towards the more specialized areas of yoga, and now also works privately and in small groups with students for individualized practices, catering to peoples own specific bodies. Alecia also teaches private yoga lessons at STAMINA Clinic in downtown Lethbridge.

Alecia's greatest reward in life is watching the transformations that happen in a peaceful yoga class as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual transformations happen within the lives of those inflicted with stress and chronic pain. Alecia looks forward to the years to come and embarking upon the lifelong journey of experiencing and teaching her love for yoga.
