Paige Lichens loves teaching yoga in DC! (She teaches awesome classes at Lil Omm.)
“I like watching faces of those coming to the mat, offering suggestions and seeing them surprised about themselves, abilities and experiences. No matter what the motive is for someone coming to yoga, I like teaching about the breath, concentration, posture and expanding overall awareness outside of the classroom so function, stress and health is improved.”
Paige is a Licensed Yoga Teacher (200 hr), completing her teacher training in 2008. She continued her training, attending Teacher Training for children’s yoga at YoKids (2009) and in the Spring of 2010 she completed Prenatal Teacher Training with Janice Clarfield. Always continuing to learn, she is now completing a 2.5 year yoga therapy training to work with various injuries.
She incorporates a variety of yoga styles that includes Jivamuki, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Yin/Yang, Sivananda, Dharma Mittra and Iyengar.

It was scary going from teaching the same classes for years and years to studios where no one knew me! The DC yoga community made me feel so welcome as I transitioned here from NYC, where I taught and practiced for 10 years.
That meant a great deal to me and I feel it helped me take my teaching to a whole new level. I feel we are always students. Moving to the DC area allowed me to explore new teachers, studios and meet new people - and the area is filled with amazing teachers, studios and practitioners.
There are so many open minds and hearts here! The connection to yoga and to service is inspiring and I feel very blessed to be able to teach in another amazing city. I am grateful for all the opportunities here, to my teachers (and future teachers), and for all the support from the DC community.
