Alicia Kavon's teaching style has slow intentional focus, to create body awareness, align the bones, build strength within multiple layers of muscle (including those joints!), increase flexibility, overall range of motion and breath capacity. Not to mention having a great time in class settings that are friendly and informative. She is creative in her class flow, rearranging the exercises into various sequences that always warm up, strengthen then stretch…..
She has worked with young dancers both healthy and recovering from injury, with married couples, with 84-year-old Pilates fans (some of whom have worked in the past with the legendary Ron Fletcher!).
Alicia has worked with the “healthy” and the “injured” both with success and enjoyment. She listens to her clients first to ensure that they are both working towards the same goal during their time together, one that is challenging and safe (avoiding movements that aggravate previous injuries).

-The Passionate Teacher by Robert L. Fried
"...passionate teaching, like all teaching, is necessarily a social process, not just an individual performance. It is grounded in the relationship between teacher and student. It aims at a goal outside itself-engaged, intense learning that changes the course of lives and helps them realize their potential"
