Alissa Martin, RYT

Alissa loves when she can bring together Nature and Yoga. One of her favourite practices is Svadhyaya (Nature-study and Self-study). Her classes always offer a healthy dose of compassion, introspection and nourishing movement… flavoured with a few giggles for an extra dose of medicine. She teaches students how to slow down, notice, and listen – always leaving them with some food for thought to help take their practice off their mats and into the rest of their lives.
Since completing her first 200-hour certification in 2009, Alissa has added over 1000 more hours of trainings such as, Power Vinyasa, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Blissology, Pre and Postnatal, Tibetan Heart Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Yoga and Psyche, to name a few.
