Allison considers herself a lifelong learner. Her passion for yoga was sparked during her first pregnancy 9 years ago. Now as a mother of 3 girls, her own sanity is found on the mat.
She's been an educator for years, but in different capacities. First as a public school art teacher, a mother and now a yoga teacher and a Birthing from Within Mentor and Doula. She enjoys leading sweaty soulful vinyasa flows as well as guiding momma's to be and postpartum moms through mindful meditations and sweet pre/postnatal flows.
Allison currently teaches vinyasa classes, prenatal yoga and postnatal yoga, Baby and Me classes, toddler and family yoga. Her adult classes are full of energy and challenging flows, but she always gives her students the guidance to listen to their own bodies and make modifications as necessary. She believes you should meet yourself where you are and grow from there.
Allison is currently working to complete her 500 hour yoga certificate at Yoga Yoga by the end of the year. Her teachers include Jane Bahneman, Alice Duffey, Sarah Evans, DeLora Frederickson, Judith Hanson Lasater, Deanna Velazquez, Stephanie Lopez, Mary Richardson and Kristen Folkens. She completed her 200 yoga teacher training under the direction of Jane Bahneman at Blue Nectar Yoga in Northern Virginia.
She’s trained to teach Restorative Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, Trauma Informed Yoga: Veteran’s Yoga Project, TRX Yoga and she’s a Level One iRest teacher. Allison’s formal education is from The University of Hawaii with a BA in Art and a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Mary Washington. She is a licensed PK-12 Art Teacher, but has stepped into her role as a yoga teacher and full time doula/ childbirth educator.
Allison is married to a retired U.S. Marine, whom she spent the first 14 years of their marriage traveling the globe with. They moved to Austin in August of 2018 with their 3 young daughters. They are excited to finally put down roots!
