Allison's fun, rejuvenating classes invite students to connect more deeply with their own spirituality and bring consciousness to every aspect of their lives.  
 
Her life radically changed when she stumbled into her first yoga class while studying Sacred Space in India in 2007, and has inspired her to impart this power of self-transformation with others.  She frequently incorporates yogic philosophy, meditation, mantra and pranayama practices into her classes.  A music lover, she plays everything from Paul Simon to Phish to Black Keys to Krishna Das in her classes.  She has taught at many yoga and music festivals including Floyd Yoga Jam, EvolveFest, and Charm City Yoga Fest.
 
She received her 200 and 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Certifications with Kim Manfredi at Charm City Yoga, where she also took a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training.  Allison is now a key instructor in these programs.  She has continued her studies with Seane Corn, Dharma Mittra, Ana Forest, Cyndi Lee, Sharon Gannon, David Life, Leslie Kaminoff, Alanna Kaivalya, Anodea Judith, Rod Stryker, and Max Strom.   
 
She is honored to serve as the Director of Operations for the 7 Charm City Yoga studios.  She believes that generous doses of live music, nature and yoga are key to healthy, joyful living.
