Paige Lichens, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200). Licensed and registered through the Yoga Alliance. Completed my 200 hour level training in 2008 which was in various methods and styles. In 2009 completed yoga teacher training through the “YoKids” program and in the Spring of 2010 completed Prenatal Teacher Training with Janice Clarfield. Currently working on therapy yoga training, Svastha Yoga, which is a 2 1/2 year course; just completed the first course.

I was first introduced to yoga in the late 1990’s, attending an Iyengar yoga class, however didn’t enjoy the experience. Meditation and massage therapy was a practice early on in my life though as a way to connect with the mind and body. After an accident that injured my back in the early 2000′s, I knew exactly where to return, and I’ve been practicing yoga since then.

Always looking to spread the word of yoga to others, I incorporate a variety of yoga styles that includes Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Sivananda, Iyengar, and now Svastha. I like to have fun with yoga though. “There is no one way to do yoga; just find your own way and enjoy it, relax and have fun.”

Native Washingtonian and I grew up just outside of DC in Silver Spring, Maryland. After years as an accountant and CPA, I changed careers over 6 years ago and also work full time as an accounting recruiter. I live with my husband two cats and dog in Alexandria, VA. I enjoy yoga, travel, music, comedy, gardening, reading and helping others.
