About the Training
Casa Om, Mexico
The 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Pure Om Hot Yoga Teacher Training will teach you to teach two classes:
1) The 26 & 2 Bikram style 90 minute class.
2) A shorter 60 minute version of the class.
Trainees will be taught to instruct the 26& 2 series with confidence, kindness, strength and clarity, similar to how our favorite teachers teach. Trainees will be given a copy of Siri Om’s dialog which is based on her 8 years of study with Bikram and 22 year practice, and inspired by her continued study with senior Bikram teachers . It will be used as a starting place to find your own unique voice. Trainees will be taught the fundamentals of hot yoga while also encouraged to find their own unique style. Our philosophy on the yoga is that everyone can do something and this yoga is for everyone. We will also cover modifications for injury and pregnancy. Trainees will be encouraged to explore their limits and go beyond. Come with a strong mind and open heart.
You will also receive a teaching booklet to help guide students to properly enter, hold & exit postures.

Alicia Molloy PT, MSPT, BS, CSCS, RYT500
Alicia has a passion to help people. With 10 years of experience in sports and orthopedic physical therapy after training 6 years at Northeastern University’s Masters program for physical therapy she has been able to help patients heal from injury and inspire them to change their lifestyle to prevent future injury. Always teaching with a heavy focus on posture, movement patterns and body mechanics, Alicia has been a perpetual student of learning traditional practices in medicine, alternative medicine techniques and new techniques that have been developed to help people live their lives pain-free. Alicia began teaching yoga only after she found an extremely therapeutic effect from her own personal practice of yoga. After training with Kevan Gale in Fluid Yoga she gained the tools and the experience to begin applying yoga poses, breathing techniques, visualization and guided meditation to her patients in need. She is truly focused on the overall well-being of her patients and students. When she is not working with patients in the clinic, or teaching Healing Yoga classes, she is teaching the anatomy portion of various teacher trainings and holding workshops for yoga teachers and students for injury prevention. Alicia is focused on optimizing others’ potential for happiness through the practice of yoga.
Yoga is a powerful tool to assist in our human evolution. It allows us to peel off the layers of our “identities” to uncover our true nature. Through the asana practice we create strength, flexibility, and balance in our bodies. We cultivate energy and awareness to create fulfilling and balanced lives. We begin to feel that we are part of something much larger than ourselves and start to see our place in the divine plan of the universe. I have studied Dharma Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Forrest Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, and Ashtanga. I bring my in-depth knowledge of yoga Asana to my students in a fun, challenging, creative, and simple way.
