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 other physical activities 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. She then went on to complete the Sekoia Teacher training in 2015, iRest Level One and Reiki Master Program in 2016 and most recently she became an Urban Zen Integrative Therapist in 2017. In 2019, Alissa finished her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga on High in Columbus, OH. Her practice includes a variety of yoga styles with a focus on mindful movement connected with breath.
With a background in medical social work, Alissa enjoys working with diverse groups of people and in unique settings. She has experience teaching in local studios, with private individuals, with patients in healthcare settings, and with hospital employees. She is committed to sharing the benefits of yoga within the community.
