Alyssa’s yoga journey began when she was 15, simply looking for a way to move her body and workout. Entering the hot yoga world, she eventually switched into the more spiritual and holistic side of yoga; focusing on truly living the yoga both on and off the mat. She received her 200 hour certification from The Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in July of 2017. Spending the month living at Kripalu changed her life and opened her eyes up to the healing power of yoga. She began teaching Kripalu and Vinyasa yoga at Stonehill College a few months later, and also held a substitute teaching role at Revelation Yoga in Norton, MA. She has recently completed an introductory to Sanskrit course and hopes to continue her education within the yoga world. This practice has guided her through many challenges throughout life, always helping her connect to her innermost self. Through teaching, she hopes to share the light that this practice has continuously brought into her life, help others release judgments against the self, and practice loving awareness.
I love teaching yoga and helping people get more in touch with their bodies and themselves. Teaching yoga truly is a gift to me. To be able to share my passions with others and what I believe to be the practice of a lifetime is amazing. I think that we can all live the yoga by practicing more self-acceptance, listening to our bodies, and being in tune with the present moment. Being able to teach all of these things through my classes is wonderful. I am currently teaching at one studio and am very blessed to have a job that does not feel like work in the slightest.
I am an older student (87 years old). I was hesitant taking a yoga class, yet Alyssa took it so slow and was patient with me. She offered perfect modifications and focused on breathing work throughout the practice to help me get more in touch with my mind and body. I would definitely take a class with her again!
Alyssa provided a loving and gentle approach to teaching yoga. She made sure that my needs were met in the class and always reminded me to check in with my body throughout the session. She helped me get into my body throughout the practice and the class felt effortless.
In working with a new student, we will discuss the goal they want to accomplish. Each student aspires something different from their yoga practice. We will go over the intention of the student's practice and if the student also has any limitations or injuries.
I am a 200 hour certified instructor. I am certified in Reiki level 1 and have completed a level 1 sanskrit course.
For an hour pivate lesson I charge $15.
I got started teaching right after I completed my certification. I started teaching at my college a few months following my training.
I have worked with students of all ages and abilities. I have worked with teenagers and college students, and I have also worked with people in their 70s/80s wanting to have a very gentle and restorative yoga practice. I have worked with men and women who are healing from injuries and know how to properly adjust my classes to fit my students needs.
A recent event I am found of is attending my first sound bath healing. The physical and spiritual healing I felt that night was incredible. It was such a beautiful experience to share with many like minded individuals.
I would tell the student to make sure the teacher is a good fit for them. I would advise them to make sure the teacher also has proper certifications. The teacher should be able to fit whatever this student is hoping to get out of a lesson.
Students should think if teachers would be able to work with whatever the student needs. They should think through questions like whether the teacher will be willing to accomodate to various needs the students has and whether they are experienced enough to do so.
