Hello, I'm Alison.
I'm a body positive yoga teacher and wellness educator for nontraditional students and spaces in Washington, D.C.
Through customized combinations of yoga, workplace wellness, and creative movement, I work with everyone from aging and chronically ill populations to marathon runners and CEO's to find what kind of practices are possible and sustainable in their lifestyle. (And no one has to own a pair of leggings or know what "savasana" is to do any of that).
I promote accessible spaces and experiences free of judgement and expectations, and focus on movement as an avenue for empowering people and communities of all shapes, sizes, and abilities to be curious and knowledgable about what they have available them. Read my teaching philosophy and approach here.
I am Yoga Alliance certified and a proud community member of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition. I have been collaborating with hospitals, workplaces, artists, and faith communities in the Washington, D.C. metro area since 2011.
Learn more about my philosophy and core mission in this recent video interview with HireEffect.
Lots of the photos of me on this website are by the incredibly talented photographer and
fellow D.C. creative collaborator Mark Soriano. (Hire him - he's awesome.)
