Yoga is about cultivating exquisite relationships; the ones you have with yourself, and with others. As Allison facilitates your yoga practice, she will invite you to explore the GIFTS of the practice, that you can use on and off the mat!
Allison is a RYT 500 hour registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, one of 1,500 world-wide Chopra Center Certified Primordial Sound Meditation Teacher, a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner and a Certified Johnny G Spinning Instructor.

Allison instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like. Good for those starting their journey into yoga, more experienced Yogis that want to fine tune their practice, or those looking for balance, alignment, functional strength and a deep stretch. This class will be customized toward the students in attendance. Come to your mat for strength and peace. Mild heat, 85 degrees

  • 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
  • The Svadhyaya 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, certified by Yoga Alliance, is an invitation for students and practitioners of all levels, backgrounds, and ages to engage in the conversation, practice and teaching of Yoga. Teacher training is an opportunity to dive deeper into your own personal growth and your love of all things yoga, or to become a yoga teacher. Allison & Kate create a solid foundation on how to teach yoga in a supportive environment to build your confidence as a yoga teacher. You do not need to want to teach in order to enjoy and grow through this program. We ask that students have at least one year of solid practice experience before joining the group to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the program as possible.
