The Teacher

Hello, my name is Allyson.

I received my yoga instructor certification in Rishikesh, India in 2018. I am a licensed and insured E-RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance.

I have been practicing and teaching yoga since 2012 and have traveled to 40 countries and lived abroad in New Zealand, Thailand, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, India, and Spain.

The Class

Styles include Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin with a focus on Mindfulness.

My classes are unique because I always provide essential oils and use my Chakra sound healing bowls throughout class.

I am currently pursuing a career as an MD, so I have a background in science, chemistry, and biology. My approach takes the best of science and spirituality and, with my knowledge, I apply it to best inform and guide my students.
