I believe that yoga is a path to freedom that each practitioner can experience in a unique, life-affirming way.
A practitioner of yoga since 2000, Flissy has over 2000 hours of experience teaching yoga to groups and individuals, including serving as yoga teacher training faculty at Life Time Athletic in Columbia, MD. Her teachers include Gary Kraftsow and Erich Schiffmann as well as diverse background studying vinyasa, yin, and alignment-based yoga methods. She is passionate about teaching the holistic benefits of yoga practice which include not only the physical practice of doing postures, but also breathing practices, meditation, and the study of yogic philosophy. Her expertise is in adapting practices to meet an individual’s needs and goals, and empowering students to students to develop their own personal practice by providing a safe and nurturing space to explore yoga.

Flissy has performed professionally since 2009 both as a soloist and in collaboration with other dancers including her work with Transcendence Belly Dance Collective, Kallisti Tribal, and Barakaat. Flissy’s belly dance expertise is in group improvisation, which means the dancers have a shared vocabulary of movements that allow dancers to perform pieces that are completely improvised, creating a new experience every time. Her performances are marked by a relaxed, regal presence and include finger cymbals, sword, basket, and other props.
