Alyssa is going into her 4th year at Cal State Long Beach with a major in education and minor in child development. It was in Long Beach that Alyssa first experienced yoga and from there she was hooked. Because of her background in dance the Hatha practice came easily to her, but she craved the understanding of the deeper meaning of yoga, so she decided to take the next step to obtain her 200-hour certification through Long Beach School of Yoga. Alyssa was excited to discover that yoga and education go hand in hand and one day Alyssa hopes to become an educator that implements yoga practices and philosophy into her classroom in order to teach children mindfulness of themselves and others. She believes that if we all had the tools to understand ourselves at a young age, it would create an even brighter future. She is blessed to have the opportunity to share her practice with such wonderful young minds. Alyssa teaches our Kids Yoga class on Sundays at 9 a.m.
