Hi! I’m Allie, a certified yoga instructor, and a recreational runner and hiker. Right now I primarily use yoga to cross train and recover from the latter two activities. All of the activities I practice work together to help me feel good and balanced, physically and emotionally, and I love sharing this with others, both as a friend and also professionally as a yoga instructor.
I believe that yoga offers far more than physical benefits, though. As a yoga instructor, I also bring my educational and professional background in social work and addiction studies, and personal experience with trauma recovery and emotional and physical wellness into my teaching. I have taught yoga for university organizations, church women’s groups, at libraries, event centers, and substance abuse rehabilitation centers. I love teaching, and I love working with so many incredible people as they work toward their own goals in yoga and in life.
