ALICIA BRILL | SEATTLE, WA
Alicia first began practicing yoga on a deployment with the Army. While the military taught her discipline, yoga provided her with a sense of discipline plus honoring one’s self exactly where you are. Yoga has become an instrumental part of her physical and mental self-care and healing over the past decade. Since getting out of the military in 2007, Alicia has admired the sense of camaraderie she felt in the military and has sought ways to be of continued service to other military veterans.
Alicia became a certified yoga teacher with 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in April 2017, and completed Level One training with Veterans Yoga Project in January 2017. Her concentration has been on Yoga for Trauma Healing and Yoga for PTSD. Alicia received her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. In addition to teaching yoga, Alicia is a classroom English as a Second Language teacher working with adult immigrants.
Outside of yoga and meditation, her passions include mountain climbing, being outdoors, traveling, and doing one thing every day that scares you.
