Alyssa tried her first yoga class back in 2009 but didn’t become a regular practitioner until 2018 when she started attending Diana’s classes at Avante Body and Wellness . Since then, yoga has quickly become a passion for her, and she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Avante in 2020. What she loves about yoga is not just the physical attributes of strengthening the body but also its power to introduce mindfulness into one’s daily life and to improve mental health. Alyssa loves teaching dynamic flows focusing on a mixture of strength, balance, and mobility. Having dealt with her own lower back and hamstring injuries in the past, she is extra attentive to alignment and giving her students clear cues and variations to have a safe and injury-free practice where they can progress at their own pace.
