Teaches : Prenatal Yoga, Mom & Baby Yoga
Alisa attended her first yoga class when she was 20 and fell in love, but it wasn’t until suffering a major back injury years later that she realized yoga was going to become a much bigger part of her life. It was a major component of her rehabilitation for her body and mind, and she knew she wanted to share her practice with others.
Alisa completed her 300-hour Yoga Teacher training at Source Yoga in Winnipeg in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin and soon found her passion with Pre/Postnatal Yoga, continuing her education with the Empowerment Project, and obtaining her Pre/Postnatal Fitness Specialist Certification.
Since the birth of her children Alisa has continued her studies with several trainings including Vinyasa Immersion in Skillful Sequencing at Shala Yoga in Squamish BC, various prenatal fitness and childbirth education courses, kids yoga certification and advanced teacher training programs. Alisa teaches other classes including kids yoga in schools, and her Tiny Yogis program for preschool age children. Alisa also offers Karma classes throughout the year through her fundraising initiative Healing Minds, Healing Bodies to raise money for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
When not on her mat Alisa can be found spending time in nature, playing drums, and baking. She lives with her husband, two sons Jack and Henry and their three dogs.
Her goal with her pre/postnatal classes is to empower women to prepare their body, mind, and breath for labour, delivery and parenting, while helping them connect with their babies.
