Goga's Instructors

Alyssa

Hometown: Detroit, MI 

Favorite Goat(s): Impossible question… because I love them all uniquely. But Kit & Kat were my first loves <3 Those classic troublemakers…

About Alyssa:

  • I graduated from Michigan State University in 2015 and then moved here a few years ago for school and have been loving it.  I am currently a full-time medical student at the U pursuing an MD degree. 

  • My hobbies include traveling, exploring all things from new cuisines to new places, volunteering, being outside, spending time with friends/family, anything involving animals, and of course yoga/GOGA. 

  • Through yoga, I have discovered my own strength as well as how to maintain balance in my life… And GOGA allows me to combine nearly all my favorite things.

  • My favorite part about being an instructor of Goga is watching people of various backgrounds and experience levels come in & step away from their busy lives to just stretch/flow, laugh/breathe, and interact with the animals & fellow gogis in a fun and welcoming space.
