Specialties: Power Yoga

Alison found power vinyasa yoga as an inspiring form of fitness 20 years ago. Ten years after she first stepped on the mat, she changed career paths and became a yoga teacher. Over the past decade of teaching, she has put her own mark on power yoga to bridge traditional poses with playful, yet functional and mindful movement.
