Alissa Stein

Alissa Stein began practicing yoga regularly after attended a yoga Journal conference in celebration of her 50th birthday.  suffering from chronic low back & shoulder pain, as well as TMJ, she found that through yoga her symptoms diminished considerably.

Alissa has explored anusara, skanda yoga works & Gentle Therapeutics Teacher tranings. SHe is also certified in Yoga for Scoliosis. In all of these styles, Yoga is both a transformational  & inspirational practice.   Mid-life has taught Alissa that with practice, all will come & you do not have to have a “flexy-bendy” body in order to begin. 

Alissa  graduated from Washington University in St. Louis Missouri,  with a BA in Early Childhood Education & Art History.  In addition, she received her Masters in Early Childhood & Special Education from Washington University.
