What's up! Alysa here!
Well... where to start? In 2015 I took my first ever yoga class and instantly I was in love. The way my body moved and how strong it made me feel, and I don't just mean physically. It brought out my confidence which I used to always hide on a shelf. Within a year, I knew that I wanted to become a yoga instructor so I began my journey into getting my CYT-200.
In September of 2016, I started teaching my first set of classes and from there I have continued to grow my practice. In my life, I feel so sure that I am in the right place by being a yoga instructor. With my classes, my wish is to promote confidence into my students. I don't just mean in themselves or in their practice but in everyday life. To know that they are capable of anything.
I am always ready to grow as a teacher so in 2020, I took training to become certified to teach aerial yoga instructor and yoga barre. Let me just say I never thought I would become a yoga instructor in general but to take aerial training was a step out of my comfort zone. I am so glad that I did it though!
Yoga, of course, is a passion of mine but since I was a little girl I have had another passion and that is music. I grew up with a father who played drums and it instilled this love and passion for the craft into me. I get the privilege of following both of my passions because I get to perform on stage with my band The Indigos and create music in my duo, Matt & Aly. Music is such a life saver for me and an essential part of me and who I am. It inspires how I move, flow and teach my classes.
When I'm not teaching yoga or singing, I am an avid fan of having dance parties, cooking, shoving my nose in a book, drinking my favorite cinnamon tea, snuggling with my dog, and anything that allows me to be in nature.
