Katie O

Intuitive, caring, knowledgeable, curious, and funny are just some of the words that describe Allison.  She is a yoga instructor who brings light and direction to each class as she helps her students grow physically, mentally, and emotionally. I’ve laughed in her class, cried as emotions seemingly were released from deep within my muscles, and always left the mat feeling expanded. She thoughtfully plans each sequence in service of the intention for the class. Allison keeps up with new information about the biomechanics of yoga, enabling her to help people with mild to more serious limitations adjust poses in specific ways so they can still feel the benefits of the practice. I started going to Allison’s class during a difficult time in my life. She immeasurably helped me cope with the stress in my life, including by reframing what was happening to consider what it could teach me. She helped me regain confidence and feel better physically. I have moved from the Chicago area and miss her classes. I enjoy using her Yoga + Travel app, which is user-friendly.
