ALYSA OSVOG Certified Yoga Therapist RYT-500, Meditation Mystic, Certified Gateless Writing Coach
Alysa believes in the intrinsic power of healing through awareness practices of yoga, meditation and writing. Alysa describes her teaching as simple and effective, rich with science yet welcoming in style. She encourages students to discover their 'own alone time', an opportunity to let go of outside distractions, develop intuition, inner strength and clear wisdom.
Why Writing- I found immense pleasure and profound healing by not only connecting with my own stories, further letting them go. In Suzanne Kingsbury's Gateless academy, I learned brilliance of the craft, and how her method effectively works to move myths from our mind into healing art. I developed a style to teach this form of freedom in therapeutic settings and private coaching.

Why Yoga and Meditation? Yoga is a personal connection between the feeling body, thinking mind and energy awareness. The practice shifts as changes as we do. When my dependence on drugs and alcohol became too fierce on Feb 10, 2012, I no longer had the luxury of being numb. I was so locked up with emotions and very resistant to talk therapy, yet through practiced yoga, I opened and released in many ways. Yoga became a vital catalyst in my sustainable sobriety. I pursued an education in Yoga Therapy and learned about Somatic Experiencing, how we store emotions in our joints and tissues, Neuroplasticity, how the brain rewires new pathways of healing and compiled evidence to support 'Yoga as a Treatment Tool for Addiction'. Dedicated to my personal practice, non-negotiable morning meditations.
Who is in recovery- We are all in recovery from something, layers of life that dull our light. We wear masks as a means of survival or mere amusement until they become too heavy causing physical limitations. emotional pain or manifest into addictions that simply no longer work. The process of recovery is personal to discover ways to peel off these layers, remove the masks to connect back with ourselves. In my experience Yoga, Mediation and Writing help, take ownership of our shadows, validate our dark, so we are capable revealing our true light.
