Initially trained in power Vinyasa yoga, Allison (MHS, E-RYT 500, CPT) has been teaching yoga since 2003. In May 2015, she graduated from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, School of Ayurveda where she received her 500-hour teaching certificate as an Ayurveda Yoga Specialist. She is also a Level 1 certified Restorative Yoga Teacher. With a background in fitness and personal training—and like many students of yoga, Allison initially fell in love with the strength and physical challenge of the asana practice. However, she quickly realized that there was so much more to yoga on and off the mat and is continually seeking to evolve her practice and teaching in the areas of pranayama, meditation, Ayurveda medicine and aromatherapy, and other healing modalities. As a teacher, Allison describes her style as multidisciplinary— and is primarily influenced by her love for the creative elements of Vinyasa flow, the alignment principals of Iyengar, and the body-centered focus of Kripalu yoga. Allison’s classes are a dynamic fusion of core strength, thoughtful sequencing, and graceful flow culminating to deeper restorative postures, breath work, and meditation.
