My Story

You may be asking yourself, what is Wild Wisdom?

When I began my journey to connect to my femininity years ago. I had no idea it would lead me to reconnect so deeply with nature, horses and my pelvis. I had no idea where to begin and just thought it was about wearing more so-called feminine colors and dresses.

The more I dove deep within myself through my yoga and meditation practices, my life began to unfold in beautiful ways. I was introduced to a friend who shared the way of the Horse and how to connect with the land and Spirit from her Native American roots.

Through that experience, I longed for horses to be a part of my life and attended a mind-body and horses retreat in Arizona. The experiences I had there were so profound and revealed so much, including the intense feeling of being alive on my third day of riding my horse, Latigo, through the desert.

I was transformed. I was connected deeply to myself. The horses showed me that I needed to open my heart to receive and that I truly could share healing energies with my hands when I was grounded in being.

I knew I needed to incorporate this deep connection to Horse and feminine wisdom into my yoga teachings. I knew I needed to share this wild wisdom with the women I work with every day so they could feel alive again, tune into their heart's desire and embrace their feminine power.

Are you ready to begin your journey and connect to your wild wisdom?

Wild blessings,
Xo, -Alyssa

Background

I am passionate about sharing the therapeutic wisdom of yoga and have practiced for over 15 years. I was inspired to become a teacher after sharing the practice with my young niece over 10 years ago. Having suffered from the adverse effects of burnout, I am a huge advocate for self-care and now dedicate my life to sharing yoga, meditation and self-care rituals as therapies to empower women to be healthy, stay sane and feel good again.

I hold the Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) designation from the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and I also lead 200-hour Yoga Teacher Trainings at Embarque, the yoga studio and holistic health spa I own in Indianapolis, Indiana.

As the host of the Wild Wisdom Podcast, I get to interview some incredible people. I also lead retreats across the globe, combining yoga, meditation and equine therapy to help women connect with nature to connect with themselves.

I have been honored to share yoga as a therapy with veterans experiencing chronic pain and PTSD over a three-year research study in conjunction with the VA and work in a specialized clinic with patients in a hospital setting. I have seen firsthand how transformative yoga and meditation can be for many people.

When Iā€™m not speaking, teaching or leading retreats, you can find me with my feet in the grass, hiking with my beloved dog, Ellie, or spending time with horses at a ranch.
