Yoga has been Allison’s longest practice, and it is what inspired her to to pursue other forms of bodywork. Like many Americans, Allison’s was first introduced to yoga through asana practice. She studied within the Krishnamacharia lineage, practicing Iyengar, Anusara, and now, Ashtanga.  However, over time other aspects of yoga have become important to Allison’s life. Allison is intrigued with yoga as a platform for spiritual growth, and personal transformation.

In 2006, Allison started studying with her teacher, Max Strom. She was moved by his big heart, and skilled approach to designing a yoga practice that incorporated levels of the spiritual and emotional bodies. In 2009, Allison took a 300 hour teacher training with the Jivamukti Yoga School, again fascinated with their fully embodied approach, devoting to levels beyond the just the asana. Allison does not currently teach yoga. However, she draws from the principles of the practice and incorporates them into her bodywork. She believes that the embodiment that she receives through yoga allows her to be aware of the clients experience on the table and assist them with energetic and structural shifts that bring them further toward health and balance.
