About Alice

Alice teaches meditation, mindfulness and Yoga to a diverse audience in New York City and also via phone and Skype. Her gentle approach puts newcomers and those who are suffering at ease.

 

Alice’s own exploration of Yoga – its potent wisdom traditions, physical practice and core of meditation – is deep and ongoing. She embraces meditation as her core practice and is skillful at inviting newcomers into meditative states.

 

Before becoming an instructor of meditation and Yoga (in 2008), Alice had careers in global banking, and as a consultant to the banks and other firms. With experience in some of the most competitive corporate cultures on the planet, Alice is uniquely qualified to bring meditation and mindfulness into the workplace.

 

A lover of the arts and New York City, Alice enjoys spending time on the seacoast of her native New England. She embraces the life-affirming view that everything is an opportunity for our expansion.

Influences

 

I love wisdom traditions – the non-dual mystical core at the heart of them as well as their practical guidance for living a beautiful life.

 

I’ve completed over 1200 hours of study in meditation, mindfulness, and the physical practice of yoga. I am Anusara-trained with certifications in Yoga for Osteoporosis and yoga4cancer.

 

The wisdom traditions I study and teach include Classical Yoga, Vedanta, Bhakti Yoga and non-dual Tantra (Kashmir Shaivism and Shaktism).

 

While I am not a Buddhist, my practice is informed by the wisdom and practices of Zen Buddhism (Thich Nhat Hanh) and Tibetan Buddhism (Pema Chodron). It is also deeply informed by the authentic mystical heart of Christianity, Sufism, Taoism, Joseph Campbell and secular mindfulness and meditation practices.

What I Love

 

In my original teacher training I was voted “most likely to be found on a beach in Mexico with a stack of texts.”

 

I’m drawn to beauty, delight in creativity and cherish authenticity.

 

I started practicing yoga when I was navigating a universal human experience – the loss of a loved one. In my first classes, I experienced yoga’s power to shift our mental and emotional state and to create deep feelings of well-being in body and mind.

 

Through the physical practice, I’ve healed my own therapeutic issues and through a deep, ongoing practice of meditation, I’ve re-connected with an underlying, ever-present current of contentment.

 

Recently, when walking on a New York City street, I had this thought: “What a wonderful life it will have been – to have shared the practices of meditation and yoga with so many different people.”

 

I love…

  • The diversity and vibrant pulse of New York City
  • The night flight to London
  • Art, dance, music, poetry, theatre
  • The way Broadway sparkles at twilight
  • The rocky coast of New Hampshire and Maine
  • Small New England towns
  • Beauty – in nature and in architecture
  • Curling up on the couch with a book and a cup of tea
  • Meditating and journaling to capture a flow of insights
  • This deep feeling of well-being in my body/mind
  • Sharing the practices that help us quiet the mind
  • Helping people not suffer and connect with their center – their contentment and intuition
  • The brightness in students’ eyes after class
  • Teaching group classes in thunderstorms or when the snow is falling
  • Using Powerpoint and my Tibetan Bowl to teach in the workplace
  • Capturing moments of beauty with my iPhone camera
  • In summer, the golden, early morning sunlight that floods my parquet floors and white bookshelves
  • This practice
