Alyssa is a certified yoga instructor who trained at Laughing Lotus NY, under the guidance of Dana Flynn, and is a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance®. She teaches a Lively Vinyasa Flow and a Mellow Flow that combines detailed alignment with fluid movement, tied together through breath control and music that inspires the soul. Alyssa has practiced and learned from some of yoga’s greatest teachers including Simon Park, Dana Flynn, Ariel Karass, and Schuyler Grant.
Alyssa was first introduced to yoga in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Since moving to New York City, yoga and meditation have become a necessary part of her daily ritual. This practice soon led to studying nutrition, both Ayurvedic and “Real Food,” inspired by Nina Planck. Combining these key components, Alyssa has created her own “Lively” and “Mellow” Flow, inspired by her Vinyasa training, her theatrical dance training, and her love of reggae music.
Musikgarten is a research-based and holistic approach to music and movement that is designed to meet the developmental needs of children. The comprehensive curriculum includes a rich repertoire of favorite songs and activities.
Family Music for Babies (birth-18 months, 30 minutes) is designed to help caregivers play musically with their babies! Activities include bouncing and rocking songs, wiggle and peek-a-boo games, dancing and exploring simple instruments. Music for babies establishes a foundation for singing and musical thought, aids body awareness through movement and sensory-motor interaction, and helps develop listening skills and sense of beat. The class focuses on nurturing the bond between the caregiver and child.
Family Music for Toddlers (15 months-3 years, 30 minutes) lays the foundation for lifelong musical learning and enjoyment by encouraging thoughtful and active participation of the caregiver and toddler. Musical play activities include singing, bouncing, dancing, musical patterns, focused listening, rhymes, movement-based beat experiences and playing simple instruments. Positive interaction in a musical environment filled with sensory-motor exploration serves the overall development of toddlers.
