“Yoga with Allison is a unique experience through which any student who puts forth the effort is sure to progress, both on and off the mat.
Like most things in life, one gets out of something only what they put into it, but students are not to worry, as Allison is an amazing teacher who will not let you get away with taking the easy way out; instead, students in Allison’s classes challenge themselves and reap the benefits of such a complete yoga practice.
Not all yoga is created equal, and Allison is proof of this.” – Sean K
Allison is a phenomenal yoga instructor who pours her heart into creating innovative, inspiring, and challenging sequences for classes that are delivered in a way that makes yoga fun and accessible to anyone – regardless of their age, fitness, or level of experience. As a teacher trainer, she is able to take what she does in class and take it to the next level by sharing the depth and breadth of her knowledge with the trainees in a way that is both educational and empowering. The curriculum and group exercises she devised for the training pushed me to new places emotionally and forged bonds of friendship among our group of trainees that will last long beyond the program. I highly recommend the program to anyone looking to learn more about yoga, themselves, and who desire to share the joyful experience of yoga with others. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.” – Nicole Pamukov
“Allison has the quintessential characteristics of all great teachers – she effectively listens and understands every student’s needs, but more so she communicates with each student individually – in her own unique way.
I have been an avid student and fan of Allison’s for the past three years and without question, practicing with her has changed me – not only physically, but emotionally as well.
Allison’s personality and passion for yoga is infectious – she is a wonderful instructor and I am honored to be one of her students.” – N. Shah
