 “Yoga with Allison is a unique experience through which any student who puts forth the effort is sure to progress, both on and off the mat.  

Like most things in life, one gets out of something only what they put into it, but students are not to worry, as Allison is an amazing teacher who will not let you get away with taking the easy way out; instead, students in Allison's classes challenge themselves and reap the benefits of such a complete yoga practice.  

Not all yoga is created equal, and Allison is proof of this.”
