Grounding. Physically place all 4 limbs on the ground, or metaphorically. Ground down. Feel the earth beneath you, the support that it provides. You are secure, you are ok. During this exciting time of spring emerging, chaos and uncertainty may arise. Greet them with open arms and then find that security to tame them. I’ve […]

Testimonials

“When I think of Alisa, one word that comes to mind is compassion. She is extremely compassionate to ALL beings and it shows in her daily interactions. I met Alisa through yoga and immediately resonated with her teaching and philosophy as she is extremely knowledgeable, kind and welcoming of all students.

With Alisa’s guidance and mentorship, I have been able to expand my awareness.  Now I observe certain situations with a different perspective, which was not previously possible for me. Alisa make me feeI like she has my best interest at heart without any fear, judgment or anxiety.”

“Alisa suggested I read a book by Deepak Chopra about happiness, since I was struggling with finding happiness with myself or others. I had the book read in 2 days and asked her for more suggestions, which she said Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. After that I was hooked and found the next book in that 3 book series by Brené Brown and became so aware of vulnerability and its importance. I started to make amends and forgiving people and situations that were in the past. When I would feel in a rut where I couldn’t get past a certain emotion that was irrational, I would talk to Alisa and she would help me become aware of what I was really feeling and acknowledge it.”
