About

Creative and functional movement

Alissa is a Les Mills BODYBALANCE® group fitness instructor, and has recently trained to become an independent yoga teacher, starting up Wonder Yoga. Her focus is currently on workplace yoga and social gatherings. 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 been teaching Les Mills BODYBALANCE® in Auckland since 2014, and was delighted to help launch the amazing Les Mills Vinyasa Yoga and Les Mills Mindfulness Meditation classes to Les Mills clubs. She also really enjoys teaching children at Yogi Kids – working with children is extremely fulfilling, and a lot of fun!

“After all these years, I have begun to wonder if the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company.”
