Yoga found Alyssa in a community space in the turn of the millennium. What first began as a sibling bonding activity has transformed into an essential part of her life today. The mat is her sanctuary – a constant, her safe space.
An advocate of refining the art of being, Alyssa believes in the lifelong practice of having a disciplined mind. She is very grateful for all the lessons that Yoga has taught her, and for all her teachers, past and present.
Alyssa took her first Yoga Teacher Training in Universal Yoga® with Andrey Lappa in 2014. The profound realizations from the holistic system sparked off an immense desire for her to plunge further into the pursuit of knowledge of the ancient yogic sciences and esoteric anatomy. Her deep love for the healing arts further propelled her to become an experienced Thai Yoga Bodywork practitioner.
Stumbling upon the Mysore-style practice of the Ashtanga Yoga method, Alyssa found home in Mysore, India amidst a beautiful global community of sincere practitioners. She spends a considerable amount of time practicing with, and assists, her beloved teacher, Vijay Kumar.
Alyssa hopes to be able to share the immense benefits of yoga and hold space in the same grain that she has been privileged to receive from her teachers. Her classes are gentle, dynamic and playful, placing focus on building up awareness of the breath and alignment of the mind-body connection; developing one’s mental clarity and strength.
When not on the mat, Alyssa delights in being at the countryside, taking long walks in the forests or swims in the waterfalls, chasing the sun at varying altitudes.
