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:
WARM YIN YOGA (deep stretch)
In a moderately heated room, this class offers a more meditative style that works on the connective tissues in the body. This style is great for improving flexibility, while maintaining joint mobility and bone health. The room is heated to 90 degrees.
