ALYSSA PFENNIG, C-IAYT,
Alyssa is passionate about sharing the therapeutic wisdom of yoga to help others nourish their path to wholeness. She has practiced yoga for over 15 years and was inspired to become a teacher after sharing the practice with her young niece.
Drawn to the therapeutic use of yoga practices that helped her with an injured shoulder and manage work stress, she spent three years immersed in the study of therapeutic yoga through the Yoga on High Teacher Training Institute in Columbus, Ohio. She has trained in using yoga practices such as asana, pranayama and meditation, to help with structural, mental and emotional issues and will help you make every pose accessible and comfortable in a group class or design a personal yoga program specific to your needs.
For the past three years, Alyssa has assisted in research studies on using yoga to manage chronic pain and PTSD with veterans in conjunction with the VA Medical Center and also works one-on-one with patients in a specialized clinic at Eskenazi Health. She is an E-RYT 200/RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance and a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). She is also certified in enzyme nutrition with the Food Enzyme Institute and certified in Thai Yoga Massage.
