The daughter of a yogi, Alissa has been practicing yoga for over a decade. She graduated from the Sivananda Vedanta Academy in 2014, and has taught at various locations in Toronto.
She was trained by internationally renowned yogis, Satiadev and Nirmala, and has studied restorative yoga under Marla Joy, post-natal yoga with Sue Elkind, and yoga birthing method under Dorothy Guerra.
Alissa is also a birth doula, a founding member of the Doula Collective, a reiki practitioner and mother of one amazing little girl. When Alissa isn't attending births and teaching yoga, you may find her spending hours on the confederation trails with her babe and her dog, eating fair trade chocolate or that yummy bread from the market, and biking. Alissa believes wholeheartedly that we can change the world with love, and hopes to share that in her classes.
Alissa Archibald instructs the following:
Alissa is a yoga teacher, birth doula, a new mom,
and is very passionate and excited about working with moms to be.
Prenatal yoga is a great way to prepare for labour and to also support the changes, expansion, growth and development in your body during pregnancy. Yoga will help you learn to connect deeply to your breath and relax, which is extremely important on a daily basis but also during labour and into being a new mom! Each class provides a variation of poses and sequences to allow you to tone muscles and improve balance/circulation, with little impact on your joints. Prenatal yoga will be offered in an inclusive environment and is a great way to connect to other beautiful pregnant woman in the community! All poses can be taken off the mat to be used anytime!
