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. Allison has been teaching in the DC area for nearly 15 years, and is on the teaching staff for the extendYoga Yoga Teacher Training program. From 2013-2015, she worked as a Health and Fitness specialist at the United States Congressional Gym where she had the honor of launching a successful yoga and meditation program for members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
