I had been practicing yoga for many years when I took my first class with Allison. Something that day came alive in me and I knew I had come home. Because of Allison’s teaching and guidance, I found my passion in Forrest Yoga and, as a result, did two teacher trainings and am now teaching yoga myself. Allison’s instruction gets you to feel your yoga and deal with whatever comes up, both on and off the mat. I know that every class will be different and challenging (physically, emotionally, mentally), but I always feel amazing at the end of class. Her passion for her craft is channeled in each and every class. I have learned so much from her teaching. When she expanded into offering yoga retreats, that was the icing on the cake as every retreat is meticulously planned and I know I will experience amazing yoga, meditation, food, camaraderie and total relaxation, which is why I continue to travel with her year after year.
