Creative and functional movement
Alissa is a yoga teacher for Wonder Yoga, with a focus on functional flow for workplace yoga and social gatherings. In this fast-paced world of stress and distractions coupled with sedentary lifestyles, Alissa encourages people to find ease in their body with intuitive movements and internal awareness.
After a full-time career in graphic design, she can understand the effects a sedentary desk job has on the physical body and mind state. Having now found harmony between both jobs, she is sharing her knowledge and experience with the corporate world and those who are in need of better balance in their lives. Classes are tailored around the needs of the participants, including contemporary flow yoga, postures that challenge but are accessible to all, and conclude with a mindful meditation.
Teaching from the heart, her goal is to share the enjoyment and passion that she feels in yoga. She wants to support people to love their body and appreciate all it is capable of. Alissa enjoys teaching to all levels of fitness, age and flexibility, and receives great satisfaction from seeing each person’s progress and achievements. She is fascinated by the synchronicity of breath and movement, and hopes you will be inspired too!
Alissa has been a Les Mills BODYBALANCE® group fitness instructor in Auckland since 2014. You can also find her teaching on Saturday mornings at Raw Yoga. Additionally, she has taught children at Yogi Kids – working with children is extremely fulfilling, and a lot of fun!
