Allison came to Pralaya Yoga injured and feeling defeated. After many years of dance training in the early part of her life, she found the dynamics of yoga nurturing, empowering and familiar. But osteoarthritis, a labral hip tear and scoliosis brought pain and fear to her part-time practice. Despite her physician’s advice, she listened to her intuition and began practicing the Pralaya method, learning intricate details of how the body works and was able to practice again pain-free.
Allison began to realize the knowledge and wisdom, spiritually and physically, that followed every practice and every lecture she attended. She sought over 1,000 hours of training with Robert Boustany, Andrew Dugas and other highly skilled teachers, such as Diane Long and Ana Forrest, bringing her deeper and deeper into the experience of her body and spirit on the mat, healing injury after injury.
Now she passes that wisdom along to others for healing, for physical and emotional freedom. Allison has taught more than 3,600 hours to professional athletes, children, injured and people dealing with everyday stress, alike. She focuses on body mechanics, alignment and bringing strength and ease onto the mat. Her students leave feeling replenished, happy and balanced. She believes that everyone can be physically and emotionally free and balanced at any age with any limitation.
In addition to teaching group and private yoga, for three years Allison has been teaching social and emotional wellness and yoga postures to children from Pre-K through high school as part of an experimental health & wellness program in HISD.
When off the mat, Allison enjoys spending quality time with loved ones, biking, dancing, enjoys the arts and traveling.
