Hi Patriots Nation! 

My name is Alyssa and I enjoyed my first season as a New England Patriots Cheerleader. Dance has always been the center of my life, but as we all find upon high school graduation, our lives change. When I began college about five years ago, I was eager to try new forms of exercise, and the University of New Hampshire had endless opportunities. I joined classes at the gym, I ran, participated in kick boxing sessions; you name it. When I took my first Yoga class I quickly realized that I had found something special, something more than a workout. I love the sweat and the strength you feel both physically and mentally upon leaving class; an unforgettable feeling that drives you back to your mat to practice as soon as you can. It truly surpassed my expectations. 

This past winter I began my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and it was one of the best decisions I have made. It challenged me in the best way possible. By stepping out of my comfort zone through training, I know that I can take more chances and be a better version of myself outside of the yoga studio.  

What I love most about Yoga is the sense of camaraderie and endless support, both from teachers and peers. I am thankful to say that I have those same benefits with the New England Patriots Cheerleaders, and I enjoyed every minute of our winning season.

Cheers,
Alyssa
