ABOUT JESSICA ALYSE
Jessica Alyse is a trauma-informed yoga instructor, meditation teacher, and holistic wellness mentor. She has been practicing yoga, meditation, and breathwork for nearly 2 decades. Jessica specializes in working with clients struggling with addiction, anxiety, trauma, and excessive stress. She received training in classical hatha yoga from the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in 2015 as well as meditation facilitator training from the Meditation Initiative in 2013. She received a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and is inspired by the overlaps between modern Western concepts of science and traditional Eastern philosophy.
Asheya instantly connected with kirtan 10 years ago through Jivamukti Yoga Studio in NYC. She remembers listening to Krishna Das in her dorm room and jumping up and down chanting Sita Ram at the top of her lungs without having a clue what it conceptually meant, yet completely knowing the truth of the mantra in her heart. She studied classical Indian raga singing while attending Naropa University and also led regular kirtan there. Kirtan has completely transformed her life into one of pure service to Love. Asheya recently completed the 50 hour kirtan training with Govind Das at Bhakti Yoga Shala and teaches yoga there, infusinf her classes with Bhakti and chanting. She is infinitely grateful for this deep, heart-opening practice and the opportunity to share its magic with her community! Jai Ma!
Maria is a performer, composer and musician, and a practitioner of yoga and kirtan for many years. She recently completed kirtan training with Govind Das at Bhakti Yoga Shala to deepen her practice and study of devotional chanting. She has a magical soul that shares love through the arts, including sacred songs, percussion, and melodies.
