My classes are based on the needs of the individual. I teach an alignment-based form of Hatha yoga, blending some Vinyasa flow, and some static Hatha holds. For private sessions I also offer a Thai yoga massage after the yoga practice, for full body-mind relaxation and rejuvenation.
I am a Certified Yoga Teacher, and I love helping people with their health, and overall well-being. I have been surrounded by yoga and meditation my whole life. I have been a yoga practitioner for almost a decade, and I have been teaching as a professional for over a year now.
Travel cost will be dependent on how for I have to travel. $10 max.
Certified Yoga Teacher
I have been practicing yoga for over eight years. I love the practices of yoga, and meditation, because they bring so much peaceful energy and awareness into all areas of my life.
I teach a dynamic alignment-based form of hatha yoga, blending the styles of Hatha and Vinyasa.
I love to be hands-on with my students , giving physical adjustments during the class and relaxing adjustments before savasana.

Orissa cares deeply about every student she teaches. She has an arsenal of adjustments & modifications for any level, all given with her warm and motivating style. This girl can bring the heat or chill things out. It's been amazing watching her style develop over the last few years of practicing with her. We're married so, trust me: This one is special.
Orissa's passion and dedication to yoga makes taking a class from her an inspiring and uplifting experience! She will motivate you to push yourself, while at the same time ensuring you feel comfortable and confident with where you're at.
Guaranteed, you will walk away from a class with her feeling like you've gained a lot!
Have attended 1:1 and group classes with Orissa and they were fantastic - well paced, good connection with the students. Feel great after class! Highly recommended.
