Instructor for Vinyasa

Carissa has recently moved from Saskatchewan after completing her 200hr YTT this summer where she fell head-over-heels for the island. Carissa specializes in Vinyasa flow, and incorporates fun and graceful transitions and movement into her classes that have been inspired from her dance background. Carissa believes that there is no such thing as a “perfect” yoga pose, and invites her participants to drop into their bodies to find and honor what feels best for them that day. Carissa believes in authenticity on the mat, having fun, and never taking yourself too seriously 🙂

Carissa is currently completing her M.A. in Counselling Psychology and is passionate about connecting yoga, breath, and movement with her future therapeutic practice as she believes that mental and physical well-being are beautifully interconnected. In her free time, Carissa loves to explore the island, spend time every day outside in nature, and experiment with some fun and crazy acro-yoga on her mat.

Carissa believes that laughter can truly be the best medicine, and so she invites you to come and find new ways to feel at home in your body, try fun and unique movements on your mat, and share in some laughs along the way 🙂
