Alisha is a yoga and meditation teacher living and working in Goa, India. She also teaches students from across the globe through her online sessions.
Alisha was drawn to yoga out of pure fascination for the intangible and the mystical. Naturally introspective and deeply invested in self-exploration, an inner knowing that there is more to our existence than what we experience with our senses is what got her into the science, philosophy and practice of yoga.
As a teacher, Alisha’s approach is grounded and intuitive with an emphasis on the therapeutic nature of the practice. Having taught at SWAN Yoga Retreat in Goa and at the award-winning spa, Ananda In the Himalayas, near Rishikesh, she truly understands the value and the need for an integrated approach to health and wellness. Alisha is a certified Classical Hatha Yoga teacher from the Sivananda Yoga & Vedanta Ashram in Kerala and has been mentored in the Bihar School of Yoga tradition. She believes a consistent and a correctly-guided practice is key for one’s physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Moreover, her understanding of the subject has evolved as a result of a yearning for the knowledge of the Self through meditation techniques like Anapanasati and Vipassana. She is currently invested in deepening her understanding of yogic philosophical texts and her interest lies in exploring the science behind various practices, particularly the effect they have on mental health and the mind. For Alisha, the purpose of practice is to heal and integrate the fragmented aspects of the mind-body phenomenon to emerge whole, complete and free.
