If you asked Alissa to attend a yoga class five years ago, she would have politely declined. However, the Universe had other plans in mind. In the summer of 2016 she thought that yoga might just help in her Tae Kwon Do training, getting into and keeping her in tip top shape and condition. The practice of yoga greatly improved her kicks, stances, and forms, eventually
assisting in earning her the lifelong dream of achieving a 1 st Degree Black Belt at the age of 45.
The Universe revealed even greater possibilities when she graduated from the YTT at Nourishing Storm. Alissa discovered her “niche” which was sharing yoga with those she felt needed it most, both children and the 55+ community. Alissa took her training even further by becoming a certified Kidding Around Yoga instructor and is currently in the process of obtaining a certification in Yoga for Parkinson’s (to be completed in early 2020). Alissa shares her love of
yoga as not only a series of movements, but of community, diversity, accessibility, inclusion,
and continued growth.
