In 2005, Allison discovered that practicing yoga was a stress reliever while attending the University of Pittsburgh and a fitness compliment to marathon training. What started as hour-long workouts on the mat, soon turned into a lifestyle encouraging balance and calm off of the mat and into her life.
Allison completed the Beyond Asana 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and traveled to Malawi with her fellow teacher trainees to build a school in the Mchereka Village through the organization buildOn. This experience inspired Allison and is reflected in her classes and her teaching style. She taps into the love and sense of community of this special village in Africa in order to build confidence in her students and allow for a creative and energetic experience during class.
Allison was drawn to the practice of Prenatal Yoga during her own pregnancy in 2016. She went on to complete the 85-Hour Dig Yoga Prenatal Teacher Training later that year. It provided her with the tools to teach expectant mamas the gift of Prenatal Yoga, encouraging her students to safely celebrate the beautiful ability and power women have to create new life.
Allison lives in Conshohocken, Pa with her husband and daughter. Together, they are committed to living a life full of good health, happiness, family, friends and travel.
