"I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
- Psalms 139:14a
In a world where beauty ideals are far from what reality is, there is a deep struggle and thirst to become more beautiful, more perfect and forever not enough.
Hello! Welcome to my page - and here's a little bit about me :) My name is Alyssa, as you probably have figured out already. I use this website as my platform to share my story. When I was young, I was abused sexually, physically and mentally and quickly ran to drugs and alcohol at the age of 14 as my way to numb my inner world. It was really hard for me to love my body or my myself in my brokenness. Yet amongst such a broken world, I found meaning, love and purpose through encountering God and a slow healing process began.
My life transformed as I started to love and care for my well being and finally learnt what self love meant. I started to work in the health industry and quickly realised how many other women had the same struggles as myself. Now, as a Pilates Instructor, Yoga Instructor and Blogger, my goal now is to help women learn to have the grace to embrace themselves and learn to see themselves the way God sees them - fearfully and wonderfully made. I hope that in my ministry, I can help women radiate beauty that comes from the inside out and find true confidence.
I hold Christian Yoga & Pilates classes and also teach Trauma Sensitive yoga in Sydney (Chatswood). Click here for more information about my physical and online classees or contact me for enquiries and collaborations!
