Alyssa received her Bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Rochester and her Masters of Science Education from PACE University. She became a certified holistic health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and received her 200 hour RYI certification from Keshava Radha Yoga in 2013. The following year, she pursued her Yoga for 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR) certification and began teaching yoga in drug and alcohol rehabilitation hospitals. Alyssa started taking yoga classes to help deal with the stress of being a NYC high school science teacher. The practice helped her to slow down, breath, and become more present and connected to herself and others. She currently is studying spiritual herbalism at Sacred Vibes Apothecary. Drawing on her skills and knowledge of the human body and mind, she has developed programs that are accessible and easily enjoyed by yogis of all levels.
