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. It allows you to take whatever you are practicing on the mat and apply it to real life. 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.
