1:1 Calm Mind, Wild Body Program
YOGA THERAPY & WOMEN’S HEALTH COACHING
We’ll work together to peel back the layers of seemingly disparate symptoms, be it physical, emotional, energetic or behavioral, and discover the root issues for your chronic pain, anxiety, burnout and more. The consultations are a blend of yoga therapy, digestive health support, wellness coaching and intuition. Ultimately, we are looking to the wisdom of your body to tell us what you truly need to heal.
Each session is completely tailored to you for the best results. Currently, I am on maternity leave and have a limited number of openings for new clients beginning program in January 2020.

What is Yoga Therapy?
Although all yoga is potentially therapeutic and healing, yoga therapy is the specific application of yogic tools - postures/exercises, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more - to address an individual's physical, mental, and emotional needs. Many people first learn about yoga through its physical practices, but a common misconception is that the discipline is all about stretching or movement. In fact, yoga therapy can help people who can't move at all, as well as active individuals!
The yogic model of health is unique because it addresses every aspect of life rather than considering each body part of system separately.
Yoga therapy is a safe way of working with the natural capacity of your body and mind to optimize well-being. This approach can help with a range of concerns:
Pain, including low-back pain, arthritis, PMS, and other types of chronic pain such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome
Neurologic issues and complications of stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Mental health, including concerns like anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, insomnia, and others
Major illness like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease
Healthy aging, including osteoporosis and fall prevention
Yoga therapy can also support people who are dealing with stress, and those who simply want to increase their well-being and overall health.

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.
to request a FREE 20-MINUTE CONSULTATION WITH ALYSSA:
I've been there. I know what it feels like when you think your body is failing you and you're not sure where to turn. I understand the feeling of being passed from specialist to specialist for unexplainable chronic pain with no diagnosis, validation or even a hint of feeling better.
I also understand the depths of sadness, grief and anger that leave you feeling desperate for connection and relief from chronic pain, but not sure what to do when you've tried everything you know. It's my own path of suffering from chronic pain that led me to become a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and dedicate my life to helping others navigate and heal their own pain, burnout, anxiety and the effects of past trauma through an integration of the mind and body.
If you're ready to connect the dots between your physical and mental symptoms and discover what I call "the story underneath the story", we can work together to figure out what's truly been holding you back...physically, energetically and emotionally, and help you find joy and love for yourself again.
