Alissa’s teaching approach to yoga is one that supports looking within oneself with the goal of increasing overall wellbeing on and off the mat. With her soft presence, Alissa leads a mindful and nurturing practice that explores specific themes while inviting her students to realize their own strengths within in a safe supported environment.
Alissa has practiced yoga off and on in addition to running for the last decade to find balance in her life. She turned to yoga in 2010 with a new and committed focus to heal and rediscover herself. Her curiosity to look deeper within herself and passion led her to the 200-hour teacher-training program at Yoga on High in 2014. Her practice includes a variety of yoga styles with a focus on Hatha and Vinyasa Flow. Alissa loves adventures and trying new things- whether is it tasting new foods, travelling, cycling, or new types of yoga such as Aerial or Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga. She is always up for a new experience.
With a background in medical social work, Alissa enjoys working with diverse groups of people and in unique settings. She has experience teaching private individuals, hospital employees, in local parks and at schools. She is committed to sharing the benefits of yoga in the community.
