Great Blue Heron

also known as a “wader” bird, symbolizes standing strong on ones’ own two feet through the waves of life. Just like yoga, the Great Blue Heron teaches us to stay present, discover balance, look below the surface, and follow our own path.

“The past decade I have followed the Great Blue Heron to the muddy waters of the Mississippi in Winona, through desert canyons of Utah, westward to the coast of California, and up the rivers of Colorado. Finally, I have landed back home to Amery, the City of Lakes. I feel incredibly grateful and honored for the opportunity to share the gifts of mindful, healing and empowering practices with my hometown community. “

Great Blue Yoga Owner, Alyssa Montana



“Alyssa goes beyond yoga teacher, reiki practitioner, mala maker and Thai yoga massage- she is an intuitive genius and so incredibly connected to the divine energy within herself and those she practices on. She authentically has shown up to her true calling. Her work is based around the clients needs and founded in years of training and hands on practice. I personally feel like having Alyssa in my life is such a gift because she has inspired me, changed me and taught me so much! Gratitude to your work sister! Shine on!” - Hannah K

“Alyssa is a wonderful teacher who offers guidance and opportunity to connect...with the community and with your Self. She brings incredible energy to her workshops and sessions. I'm always delighted when we can share space!” - Michelle A

“Alyssa introduced me to this amazing form of therapy that not only facilitated healing in my physical body but also helped me gain more body awareness. I was hesitant at first since I have no prior yoga experience, but quickly learned none was needed. I am an outdoor enthusiast and hike up to 25 miles a week. Thai Yoga Bodywork has greatly helped my flexibility and recovery time. I would highly recommend Alyssa and this form of bodywork to anyone, especially those who are very active. #LFG” - Tony W

“Enjoyed a relaxation and mala making workshop under Alyssa' s guidance. I felt safe and nurtured despite some problems I have with my hands. She individualized her teaching for me and helped me achieve my goal.” - Bridget W

“I attended one of Alyssa's restorative yoga workshops, and it was the most relaxing experiences I have had with yoga. She does a really nice job of guiding the practice and holding space for self healing. I have also had an outdoor Reiki healing sessions with Alyssa, and I loved it! It was so peaceful and calming to do the session out in nature. Alyssa is a great teacher and healer. I intend to continue seeing her regularly for healing sessions. I would recommend her to anyone seeking self love and inner peace.” - Kandace G

”I attended Alyssa Montana’s class Yoga to Replenish for the first time and I was hooked. I have been practicing different forms and this class was very hypnotic and I felt refreshed. The singing bowls we were introduced to were amazing. Thank you Alyssa!”
