Hello.

AlisonTellsAStoryFull_edited_edited.jpg

I'm Alison. I've been teaching yoga since 2004. I discovered the practice just a few years before that when I limped into my first yoga class with an injured body and a broken heart. After weeping my way through that first savasana, I thought to myself, "THIS is what I want to do with my WHOLE LIFE. And here we are. 

My classes blend physical alignment cues with guided inquiry into the metaphorical nature of the embodied experience—a combination I find to be both powerful and deeply humanizing. Participants explore various aspects of asana practice (postures) including breath-based movement, strengthening holds and strategies for pose improvement. Expect to work hard and learn, and to laugh, too!

 

I have a love and reverence for the myth, philosophy and history of Hinduism, in particular, the South Indian Sri Vidya traditions, which inform my all of my classes to some degree. You can read about my yoga training and background here.

other stuff I do

 

Before I was a yoga teacher, I was a painter. Images were the primary language through which I made sense of the world and my place in it. In recent years, time and space constraints drove me to recast that part of myself into written language, an activity I can engage in anywhere I can fit a laptop, although I try my best to "keep a brush wet" to whatever degree possible. I also perform with my father and his Jazz sextet.

You can keep up with my creative life and yoga offerings on social media (links below), and by subscribing to my newsletter. You can also send me an email using the contact form below. Until I figure out what to do with it, you can read more about me at my old website.
