Alissa Rodgers, eRYT200, RYT500, has a deep passion and respect for yoga because it has changed her life in more ways than she ever knew possible. What started as a way to lose baby weight after her first child has become an incredibly meaningful part of her every day life for the past 11 years. She came to teaching through a burning desire to share this vehicle for growth and positive change with as many people as possible. That desire also led to opening 5 studios and leading teacher training programs all over the world. She has completed nearly 600 hours of teacher training with incredible people such as: Karen and Sean Conley of Amazing Yoga, Valerie Baltzer of Transcending Yoga, Bryan Kest and David Regelin. She believes yoga is so much more than a physical practice - it is a set of tools to help you live an abundant and purposeful life. She teaches a strong and fiery power flow and always strives to keep the true essence of yoga at the foundation of not only her instruction but everything she does in her life.
