Alison started practicing yoga back while training for the Chicago Marathon in 2010. She tried yoga on and off for years, but this was her first experience with a heated studio. Her tight hamstrings and hips fell in love. The heated studio allowed her muscles to open more than they ever did. Among teaching, coaching, and training for a marathon, Alison found solitude and peace on her mat.
With a deep appreciation for her practice, she completed her yoga teacher training program in May 2016 and became a 200-hour registered yoga teacher.She still finds yoga and running go hand in hand.
Not only does Alison want to help athletes be able to participate in sports they love, but experience the spiritual journey as well. Through breath and meditation, yogis can transfer what they learn in class to all aspects of their lives. As a middle school teacher, Alison already pushes her students to open their minds, and see the good in most unlikely places. This might just be on your yoga mat.
