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.

CLICK HERE TO BOOK A YOGA PRIVATE WITH CHARLY
With nearly thirty years of nursing experience, a master’s degree and many years of teaching a myriad of subjects to a much diversified array of people I find I’ve never felt happier than when I’m sharing a yoga practice.
Even though I’ve been practicing yoga for several decades now I’ve spent the past couple of years traveling a lot in an effort to understand what this yoga path is for me. What I’ve found is that yoga is a personal practice best shared.
I have pursued teaching yoga therapeutically, meditatively, prenatally and more recently again to children. Sharing yoga with anyone anywhere, Hot, Power, Vinyasa, yoga is a joy in my life. It has helped me to clear out the rubbish physically, mentally and spiritually.
My body, mind and faith seem to grow stronger the more I open myself to the practice of yoga as well as the diverse community of practitioners I’ve encountered as I have traveled along this yogic path.
I have come to understand yoga as a complete and fulfilling life practice that uniquely lends itself to the individual. Yoga accepts each individual exactly where you are and will steadfastly take you as far as you are willing to go in every aspect of that which comprises the whole of anyone willing to breathe.

Michelle also enjoys leading yoga training courses around the world and finding her inspiration from watching her students remember and embrace their sacred path too.
Her inspiration comes from living her truth, or “following the rapture of her soul”, while watching her students remember and embrace their sacred path.
Yoga reminds Michelle that each day you set your heart and mind to achieving your goal, step by step, anything is possible.
