My Training and Experience
Alisha Nissenfeld began exploring yoga 18 years ago, and in 2001 she became a certified teacher through Sonic Yoga in NYC. During that time, Alisha also completed a Masters in Social Work, and has worked with individuals in treatment facilities utilizing Talk and Behavioral Therapy (primarily yoga) as a form of empowerment/motivational therapy, relapse prevention, and detox. Alisha is a learning enthusiast and regularly attends Continue Education Workshops with renowned teachers across the world. In May 2014, Alisha and her family moved to North Carolina and is passionate about spreading her love and light through her connection to the earth, community building, and mindful- intentional living. She is midway through a 300 hr. Therapeutics Training through Asheville Yoga Center and is passionate about working with individuals to heal from physical or emotional trauma. Alisha is available for private sessions, small group sessions, workshops, Thai Yoga Massage, and Gong Bath Meditations. Alisha honors all her teachers from the past and the present. At the moment, her inspiration comes from her current teachers, Nicole Nichols (Jivamukti) and Carson Efird (Prana Vinyasa)
WHEN PEOPLE WORK WITH ME, I AM GUIDED BY THEIR NEEDS. I WANT TO HEAR THEIR STORY.
I’m all about self-love, self-care, self-realization. I am guided by the beauty and joy in nature. I love to help people learn to feel themselves inside their own bodies, befriend the blind spots, realize what they are feeling, why they are feeling it, and how to use that information to evolve and to participate in life more efficiently. Together we can quiet the outer noise to calm the inner self. We can learn to connect deeply with our experiences so we can fully experience our lives. We can choose to be what we want to be in our lives. We choose who we want to be around. We can show up fully for ourselves, and for each other.
I WANT US ALL TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE, MOVE, AND EXPRESS OURSELVES IN A WAY THAT IS HEALING AND EMPOWERING.
And we can do this by...
- Listening to our own inner wisdom
- Trusting ourselves and others
- Working through physical and emotional trauma and anxiety
- Detoxifying the body and clean living
- Self-love and self-care
- Conscious breathing
- Quieting the mind
- Relaxation of the nervous system
