certification in 2004. She has been teaching for over 12 years, including several years at
Jivamukti’s flagship studio in NYC, as well as around the U.S., and abroad. In addition to
her certifications, Alyssa has studied extensively in both Indian and Tibetan Buddhist
traditions, traveling to India and studying with The Dalai Lama. She has received initiation in both Indian and Tibetan traditions and has completed several silent solitary meditation retreats. Alyssa is well versed in both the physical and philosophical aspects of the practice and is adept teaching beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. Alyssa’s classes draw from her own deep practice, feature carefully crafted playlists, masterful hands-on assists, intelligent sequencing and equally deft alignment cues. These elements come together to provide students with a deep and satisfying practice.
