And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

ABOUT ALYSSA 

What's your Truth? For me, it was yoga and women's coaching, and that meant leaving graduate school in November 2013 and pursuing a lifestyle career. With two bachelors degrees already under my belt, I couldn't hide my unhappiness any longer, and I couldn't shake the feeling that my true north was pointing elsewhere. Since then, I have learned a lot that I share with my clients, students, and friends. You deserve to live for yourself. You need to let go of limiting beliefs put upon you by others and yourself. You have to believe in yourself and trust in the Universe. You deserve to live your best life, however that suits you. It's about mind, body, and soul connection. This is what I practice and teach.

Truly a multi-passionate entrepreneur, I am a yoga + meditation teacher, women's coach, podcast host, and founder of The Journal Deck, who believes that self care has the ability to change the world. With personal experience in breaking the norm and walking away from a 9-5 future, and first-hand experience in the healing power of self care and self love after major life challenges, I guide others in living their best life full of Truth, grace, flow, clarity, and abundance. 

I run yoga retreats and teach full time in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA  My most recent passion project is The Journal Deck, a card deck with 52 journal prompts for self care, clarity, and personal growth. You can shop pre-orders or listen to our Self Care Spotlight Podcast at the thejournaldeck.com or @thejournaldeck on social media.

IN THE MEDIA 

My previous successful fusion as a Desire Map Facilitator and Yoga Teacher was used as a featured case study on DanielleLaporte.com, and my retreat was published in their official Licensing Guidebook. I was also a guest contributor on Yoganonymous and The Daily Guru, and I have been a featured guest on several podcasts. Please scroll to the bottom of the Home page for links.

ln all of my workshops and classes, I want you to feel empowered, strong, and inspired to live your most authentically aligned life.

So now I ask you, what would living in alignment look and feel like to YOU?
