Alison rediscovered yoga when she entered the corporate workforce in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis. Working directly with clients and hearing about their struggles and tremendous loss on a daily basis was extremely stressful and started to take a toll. Feeling dispirited and disconnected, Alison wandered back to her yoga mat.
Yoga reinvigorated Alison’s sense of self, purpose and connection. After some time, she felt called to share the practice, especially with those in the corporate world. In 2014, Alison graduated with a certificate to teach Vinyasa Yoga in the Ashtanga lineage from Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia.
A long-time meditation student, Alison pursued an 80-hour Ananda Meditation Teacher Training in Northern California shortly after Yoga Teacher Training. This two-week immersion course was profound and equips her to teach meditation to all levels, backgrounds and needs.
Alison’s students enjoy her cheerful and soothing personality. Her classes are uplifting and rich with Alison’s first loves: poetry and music.
Yoga and meditation have allowed Alison to discover and write a new story for herself. She hopes her experiences can inspire and help her students’ in their journey.
