I was first drawn to yoga in 2007 when I saw my friend hold a flawless scorpion pose. Coming from a dancing background, I was immediately hooked on the physicality and acrobatic aspects of the asana practice. It wasn’t long after starting my yoga journey that I realized how much yoga went beyond the physical postures. Every day I am amazed how yoga has transformed every aspect of my life - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I truly believe that if every person practiced yoga, the world would be drastically different. With this belief, and my desire to share my passion for yoga, I completed my 200-hour teacher training from Asheville Yoga Center in 2016 and am currently working on my 300-hour teacher training at Longwave Yoga. As an instructor, I try to bring joy and laughter to every class and encourage my students to try new and challenging things both on and off the mat. My mantra: Do the yoga - Be happy - Make the world a better place.


Alyssa instructs the following:
  • Power Vinyasa | Intermediate
  • Power Vinyasa Yoga uses mixed sequencing to build strength and flexibility through a vigorous flow. By moving at a quicker pace and linking together yoga postures through breath awareness and combining holds, core work, and balances, one will find this practice both challenging and transformative.
     
    The intermediate class is sequenced for those with an established yoga practice of one year or more (or coming from another discipline that highlights body awareness and mechanics).
     
    Level: Intermediate
     

  • Warm Power Vinyasa | Intermediate
  • Warm Power Vinyasa uses mixed sequencing to build strength and flexibility through a vigorous flow. By moving at a quicker pace and linking together yoga postures through breath awareness and combining holds, core work, and balances, one will find this practice both challenging and transformative. The room will be heated, 85-95 degrees, keeping the body supple and promoting flexibility.
