Alicia Marie is an Aerial Yogi and a legend in the field of aerial performance. As an aerialist, she toured extensively with rock legends like the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith, and later with Lucent Dossier, pioneers of the underground cirque. She has performed for the Dalai Lama and headlined with Lucent Dossier at Lighting in a bottle, Coachella, Boom and many other top music festivals around the globe.
As an aerial innovator, she created and then performed on a range of original apparatuses that transformed the way audiences experience aerial today. As a choreographer, she has trained many of today’s top performers, and as a creative director/producer for Lucent Dossier, she collaborated with projection mapping revolutionaries like 3DLive to create the first 3D live stage show in the Sahara tent at Coachella in 2016.
Alicia first discovered aerial yoga while traveling through southern India in 2007, when she saw a yogi hanging from a banyan tree. She knew in this seminal moment that she needed to combine her extensive aerial training with her yoga practice. After completing her first yoga teacher training with Saul David Raye in 2008, she began teaching aerial yoga in 2009.
Alicia teaches Aerial Yoga and Aerial Dance at Danyasa. Her classes reflect a deep sense of embodiment, sensuality, and grace, as she integrates the mysteries of the inner realms with the expression of the outer reality. In her words, “Freedom does not lie in the perfect line; it’s what lives in between them. Grace comes from understanding how the sum of the parts moves in perfect union.” With this intention, she seeks to transform the paradoxes of life into offerings of embodied wisdom.
