Allison began a steady yoga practice in 2017, when pressures from work and new motherhood were beginning to feel overwhelming. The practice of yoga allowed her to come home to her body and find a physical strength she had not known was possible. Yoga was also an opportunity to explore connection to her community in a new way and to allow herself to be seen and accepted by others.
Allison completed her 200 hour YTT through M3Yoga Center in 2019. Her classes are explorations of strength and self inquiry as well as an invitation to renew body and mind.
Outside of the yoga studio, Allison is a faculty member in the UGA Department of Psychology, teaching classes in perception, physiological psychology, and behavior.
For Allison, yoga is both enriched and informed by knowledge and appreciation of the human mind, while the practice and teaching of yoga lend sustainability and balance to academic life.
