Allison began teaching yoga in 2016 after becoming an avid student of the practice while living and working full time in New York City. Having the heart and pursuit to study yoga on a more intimate level, she left for Nosara, Costa Rica in January 2014 to train under the guidance of Don and Amba Stapleton at Nosara Yoga Institute. After receiving her 200-hour Interdisciplinary Teaching Training at NYI, she underwent a brief mentorship with Kiley Holliday at Pure Yoga in New York City and spent the winter of 2016 teaching at the incredibly wonderful New Love City in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In Fall 2017, she completed her 25-hour Restorative Training at Sky Ting Yoga under the guidance of Abby Paloma and utilizes these principles to blend into her personal teaching style and menstrual health offerings.
Humble Haven Yoga is her home studio in Richmond, Virginia, where she currently practices and teaches yoga in many forms. She has been with the studio since its opening — a journey that she’s humbled and honored to be a part of. Currently, she’s registered as a 200-hour E-RYT with Yoga Alliance and intends to pursue her 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training in March 2020 in Nosara, Costa Rica.
Her class formats and teachings are uniquely creative and quite intuitive, and always accompanied by a thoughtful and well curated playlist. A good bit of meditation is typically woven in alongside an extended savasana, as she’s an advocate for simplicity and rest as a daily self indulgence.
