taking joy in your happiness

Mudita is a word from Sanskrit and Pali with no direct translation in the English language. In Buddhism, Mudita is said to sweep away the fog of boredom and bring great wisdom. At Mudita Wellness, my goal is to help you be the best version of you – the version where you feel balanced, happy and whole.

Meet Allissa

I discovered yoga at a time when I was looking for a way to bring balance to my body and my life. I was drawn to the idea that yoga can heal your body from the inside out – no bandaids or medication required.

I lived in Chicago at the time and started practicing at a small, but intense, studio. While the practice was advanced beyond my ability, I stuck with it. And boy am I glad I did! The practice completely changed my life and continues to bring healing and balance at every turn.

I am grateful for my experiences and always hoped that one day I could help others welcome the joy of yoga into their lives too.

Many moons later, I completed my 230 hour certification at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis. With a background in the Iyengar and Hatha traditions, I am especially drawn to ayurveda, meditation and restorative practices. I strive to help others find comfort and alignment in their expression of each pose and believe in my heart that yoga truly is for everyone.
