Alicia Lyter is a trained tattoo artist and yoga teacher. Mehndi is a perfect meld of the two sensibilities. Alicia says, “I have always been intrigued by the intricate art of Mehndi. I love the aspect of women adorning each other, and all the healing aspects associated with the craft. Mehndi is an ancient art that has been practiced for over 5000 years, used to revere and honor women in many different ways. I have studied the history and varied techniques used, which are quite vast! I love to share this art with others and bring the magic of adornment into the celebration of each moment!”
