Healthy Progressions offers accessible professional development opportunities for educators and school staff in the heart of NYC in order to give teacher the tools they need to bring mindfulness and yoga to their own classrooms.
Alyssa's philosophy on life is that everything turns out better when we are coming from a relaxed and open space. With this philosophy, she empowers and equipped strong and capable educators and youth workers to utilize mindfulness and yoga tools in their own lives and in their classrooms in order to increase joy, productivity, cooperation, communication, and learning outcomes.
Alyssa has worked as a successful inner city educator for over ten years and is a certified yoga instructor and mindfulness practitioner. With stress and inability to focus being at a all time high right now in our society and education system, Alyssa believes that easy and accessible mindfulness and yoga practices that can be implemented anywhere with no necessary equipment is essential to our mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
After seeing the difference that mindfulness and yoga have made in her own life, Alyssa has streamlined the process in an easy to understand way that gives an entry point to any educator- no spandex or headstands required!
Alyssa is proud to call New York City her home and lives in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
