Fluid Yoga® 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program
Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certified Teacher Training
October 2023-April 2024
Fluid is a substance that continually flows under an applied stress; smooth, flowing, graceful....
Fluid is not a style, it is a recognition of life as ever changing, flowing from one moment to the next. It’s a way of life. Get ready to take your practice to a new level, gain new insight and wisdom, and develop your own voice as you move into the next phase of your yoga experience.
The 200-hour Fluid Yoga® Teacher Training Program invites you to go beyond learning to teach a yoga class, and instead join a community of teachers that values the personal strength we achieve when deeply interconnected with our practice and sangha.
Within the framework of a Yoga Alliance-certified curriculum, our 200-hour program focuses on personal enrichment, the discovery of your individual path, building community, inspiring leadership and cultivating a network of teachers whose offerings are intelligent by design and fluid by nature.
The program is delivered over the course of 6 months, including attendance at the Fluid Mind & Spirit and Fluid Body Modules.

Join us in person** in Wilmington, Vermont for a 4 day retreat-style weekend immersion. In Fluid Mind & Spirit we will cover the tools that students need to better understand their own minds and explore the central question: How can we let go of fear, craving and attachment in order to become happier and more content?
A Fluid mind is present and adaptable to change- qualities that lead to happier living and more refined yogic practice.
We often think of life as static snapshots that are put together to form a bigger picture, but in reality the nature of life is flowing from one moment to the next. Since life is fluid, we can all benefit from discovering a way of life that moves with the forces of nature instead of against them. Fluid Living teaches us to move effortlessly through life in a way that creates happiness within ourselves and those around us. This module uses experiential learning and real world examples while drawing on the ancient Tibetan yogic philosophies such as the Six Paramitas as outlined The Bodhisattva’s Way of Living.

Acknowledging that the safest alignment starts within the mind, you will learn how to listen carefully to your own body to make the intuitive adjustments as your body moves.

Anatomist, Fluid Yoga® Teacher Trainer
With over 10 years of experience in sports and orthopedics after training 6 years at Northeastern University’s Masters program for physical therapy Alicia Molloy has been able to help patients heal from injury and inspire them to change their lifestyle to prevent future injury. Always treating with a heavy focus on posture, movement patterns and body mechanics, Alicia has been a perpetual student of learning traditional researched-based practices in medicine, newly developed techniques and alternative medicine that have been shown 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 and guided meditation to her patients in need. She is focused on the overall well-being of her patients and students. When she is not working with patients in the clinic, or teaching group classes, she is teaching the anatomy portion of various teacher trainings and holding workshops for yoga teachers and students for injury prevention.
