Recently transplanted from Boston MA, Alissa Paquette has taken yoga classes since her junior year of high school, but it wasn’t until she was 26 that she truly found Yoga when she needed it most. Practicing consistently since 2012, yoga has enriched her life and helped her live with less stress while working full time as a Research Scientist in MA. Through the study of Ahimsa (non-harm) Alissa realized her own inner potential and decided to share with others; she received her 200 YTT in April 2014 from Inner Strength Studios in Watertown MA under the guidance of Roman Szpond and Lauren Star. Alissa’s classes aim to challenge the student physically and mentally, while creating a safe space to nurture and grow love for the self and fuel appreciation of body. Alissa believes that happiness is simply a by-product of living in love with the self, being mindful of your actions, and kind in your ways.
In June 2014 Alissa received her Reiki I attunement from Master Reiki Justin Bernhold (Cambridge MA) and is available for private Reiki healing; she also has a Kids Yoga Certification from Flow and Grow Kids Yoga with Lara Hocheiser.
When Alissa is not teaching or practicing she is dancing, exploring Portland, drinking tea, hula hooping, reading/writing, and looking for dogs to pet!
