Ally was trained in an ashram in Rishikesh, India and is a certified E-RYT 200.

Everyone can do yoga as each pose can be modified to meet your body’s capabilities. Likewise, there is always a more challenging pose to accomplish. The learning never ends, we just have to be willing to start.

A habitual yoga practice can prevent illness, maintain health, and alleviate ailments. It affects not only the physical body, but the mind and soul as well. Yoga is different because of its holistic approach. Not only are we stretching and strengthening muscles, we are accessing the organs, fascia and more. Not only are we moving the body, we are training the mind and healing our spirit. What we practice on the mat translates into the rest of our daily lives.

Ally specializes in Hatha Flow, Yin, Mindful Meditation, and in teaching you how to connect to your body.

She is known for her soothing yoga voice, explicit + easy-to-follow instruction, calming flute music in the background, and head massages in Savasana.

Virtual Retreats

Allyson hosts week long virtual wellness retreats on Instagram.

All retreats are affordable and designed for those who have a family, cannot take time off of work, or other responsibilities. Self-development and self-care should be accessible to everyone regardless of financial status, which is why we made these retreats super affordable.

Each retreat contains. Yoga, Meditation, Journal Prompts, and specialized courses taught by Guest Teachers.
