Alyssa has always been a high achieving individual but didn’t feel confident most days. Since she was a young child, she struggled with anxiety, but didn’t even know what it was until she met a friend in college who experienced similar symptoms.
Then, after a bout of severe depression, and feeling “numb” from various medications, Alyssa decided to take a totally different approach to her mental health. This is when she discovered yoga and it changed her life. She quit her day job and embarked on her entrepreneurial journey through yoga, where she became an instructor and started her own business.
Listen and learn how Alyssa was able to conquer her anxiety/depression, and build back her confidence.
