Aleece Behr

Aleece is a Syracuse University alumnus who has always had a passion for food, fitness and working with others.  She played competitive volleyball through college and always enjoyed creating workouts for the team. After college she moved to Boston for graduate school and discovered her love for teaching group fitness, particularly Spin. Her busy schedule left her facing high stress, daily fatigue and digestive issues. Aleece turned to yoga as a means of self-care and homeopathic remedy. She became a 200-hour certified yoga teacher in 2018 and has since used her yoga to help staff and students at her jobsite to live more mindfully. Aleece loves teaching yoga to all level students especially beginners so don’t be shy to come try out her class! She also loves educating people on the importance of established yoga and exercise practices including breath awareness, muscle recovery and meditation. Her favorite type of yoga class to teach is an upbeat vinyasa style flow that pairs heat and movement with deep stretch and mobility moves. She looks forward to meeting all the FHIIT ladies and gentleman during the upcoming months!
