Hi there, I'm Alisa!
Mom of two boys, dog lover, nature enthusiast, and musician. My passion for yoga ignited while attending my first class when I was nineteen, but it wasn't until years later after suffering a major back injury I realized this practice would become a much bigger part of my life.
I am an E-RYT 500 beginning my teaching journey in 2014 at Source Yoga in Winnipeg with certifications in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin, and soon found my passion with Pre & Postnatal Yoga, continuing my education with the Empowerment Project, and obtaining my Pre & Postnatal Fitness Specialist Designation.
With a commitment to lifelong learning I have continued my studies to include various teacher trainings including my Pre and Postnatal Yoga Accreditation with the Manitoba Fitness Council, Vinyasa Immersion in Skilful Sequencing at Shala Yoga in Squamish BC, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction with the Mindfulness Centre of Canada, Advanced Teacher Training at Yoga Centre Winnipeg, Infant Massage Instructor Certification, and various pre/postnatal fitness, pelvic health, somatic, and childbirth education courses. I am passionate about empowering women to prepare their body, mind, and breath for labour and delivery, and helping new moms connect with their core, community, and babies.
I am a certified Kids Yoga Teacher completing my trainings with both Kidding Around Yoga, and Yoga Ed. I love working with all ages of children from toddlers to teens to help them discover the joy of movement, and learn the benefits of mindfulness.
I have studied music for most of my life and enjoy brining my two passions together in my classes with healing sounds from singing bowls, hand pans, and other world percussion instruments to help enhance your practice and find a deeper state of relaxation. I am also a Usui Reiki - Level 3 -Master Practitioner.
When not on my mat, I can be found spending my time paddle boarding, hiking, making music, and baking. I live with my husband, two sons and three dogs.
