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. 

"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.”

-A. F.
