Hi, I'm Alyssa

I'm a yoga educator, grief coach, death doula, and facilitator of self-healing and personal transformation. I'm on a life-affirming mission to change the way we live with loss, change & impermanence.

for you

In this eBook you'll find some of my favorite practices for embracing the fullness of life, engaging the senses, connecting to the natural and man-made worlds, opening to the wonders of the universe, and loving your life more.

Who are

the gravedancers?

Gravedancers acknowledge impermanence as life’s greatest mystery, and life’s greatest gift. They are fiercely curious about life and inspired by change. They strive to live and love with light hearts. They hold space for the grieving, the living, & the dying, knowing that at some point all of us will experience the joys & sorrows of life. They voluntarily sit with darkness, grief, and discomfort, for the sake of illuminating their path forward in life after loss.

And they inspire others to do the same.

"We are all ripe for something - and times of loss or great change can be catalysts for discovering who we are and why we are here on this planet."

“Attending the workshop was pivotal for me in my healing process following the unexpected death of my mother. I felt seen. I felt heard. I felt a part of something bigger than myself, and this last bit has become my grace as I live during this season. We are all connected to each other and will grieve at some point in our lives. I appreciate how Alyssa welcomes loss, death and grief as a normal and expected part of living a human life. This aspect allows for connection with one another, as well as a closer, brave step into ourselves, versus the all consuming desire to isolate while enduring loss. Thank you for this workshop and this community!”

“Alyssa holds space in a way that is entirely unique. She has an incredible ability to help people connect to themselves, the depth of their experience, and each other. She leaves space for each individual's process and the complicated emotions that arise from grief, while at the same time making it clear that we are not alone. I am so grateful to have access to Alyssa's teaching. If you are hemming and hawing about whether to work with her, do yourself a favor and just do it - your future self will thank you.”
