About Alyssa Pfennig, C-IAYT

Alyssa is passionate about sharing the therapeutic wisdom of yoga and has practiced for over 15 years. She was inspired to become a teacher after sharing the practice with her young niece over 10 years ago. Having suffered from the adverse effects of burnout, she is a huge advocate for self-care and now dedicates her life to sharing yoga, meditation and self-care rituals as therapies to empower women to be healthy, stay sane and feel good again.

She holds the Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) designation from the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and also leads the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. Alyssa is the host of the Wild Wisdom Podcast and also leads retreats across the globe, combining yoga, meditation and equine therapy to help women connect with nature to connect with themselves.

As a yoga therapist, Alyssa works in conjunction with healthcare and many providers refer to her. She has been honored to share yoga as a therapy with veterans experiencing chronic pain and PTSD over a three-year research study in conjunction with the VA Hospital in Indianapolis. She has also worked directly with patients at Eskenazi Health in a specialized clinic using yoga as an adjunct therapy.

When she’s not seeing clients, speaking, teaching or leading retreats, you can find her with her feet in the grass, hiking with her beloved dog, Ellie, or spending time with horses at a ranch.
