Having spent more than 15 years in the world of magazines and travel writing, Alicia has pivoted from words to wellness, opting to learn from the international authority in Pilates education, Polestar Pilates. 

Passionate about movement as medicine, Alicia is a firm believer in the mind-body connection.

Having successfully completed Polestar’s Gateway and Principles courses, Alicia chose to partake in the gold-standard ‘Comprehensive’ route to teaching, which trains instructors on all pieces of equipment across the entire Pilates repertoire. She continues to work closely and learn from some of the U.K.’s most renowned Pilates educators.
