E-RYT | Teacher
Alyssa Byrd (E-RYT) has been an avid student of yoga for more than sixteen years and has been sharing yoga widely across the Bay Area since 2005. Her fascination with yoga philosophy began in high school, but it was not until a deep immersion in hot yoga that she was drawn to deepen her practice with Ben Thomas, a senior Iyengar instructor, in Pacifica. She then completed Street Yoga Teacher Training in 2008 and Yoga to the People Teacher Training in 2012. Today she continues to study yoga with Shiva Rea, having logged more than 250 in-person hours.
Alyssa’s classes focus on cultivating determination, patience, and confidence. She is committed to fostering strength, flexibility, and breath awareness all while giving her students the tools to own and trust their inner wisdom. She incorporates pranayama breath work in all her classes and encourages students to align body and breath.
