Alyssa Ward completed her 200-hour Vinyasa yoga certification at Clayton Yoga.
In addition to yoga, she has theatre, movement, dance and Pilates in her background. She has been enjoying every minute of her teaching and can guarantee a soothing, positive, and encouraging environment.
Students will see improvements in breathe and focus, flexibility, and strength. However, one of the main reasons to attend is to find a state of total relaxation, allowing you to escape from the demands of everyday life and pamper your bodies and souls.
I look forward to seeing many new faces and perhaps some familiar faces as well! Namaste.

Linda believes the opportunity to step out of our busy lives and get in touch with the peace can be a springboard to all kinds of growth within our lives.
