Kristi’s classes are such a good workout! She’s always introducing new movements and postures that we don’t typically work on which I love. and I’d say her class is really good at building strength and endurance.
Alyson Foreacre, ERYT-500, began practicing yoga in 2000, and in 2002 opened Yoga Den Studio and Boutique. In 2004, she developed the Yoga Den Teacher Training program, a Yoga Alliance accredited school, which now offers certifications at both the 200hr and 500hr level. Alyson has had the honor and privilege of certifying hundreds of teachers in her native hometown of Jacksonville, and she loves teaching her weekly classes, and creating a sense of community. Alyson has studied with dozens of master teachers, explored a variety of yoga traditions, and has received multiple certifications. This has evolved into an eclectic teaching style which is upbeat and encouraging, as she strives to make the practice of yoga accessible to everyone with a “no judgment” philosophy. A 2-time lululemon ambassador, her classes have appeared nationally on America’s Next Top Model and 48 hours, and her articles in numerous publications. She has worked privately with many professional athletes to help them integrate yoga into their training regime, and has volunteered hundreds of hours to bring yoga out to the community, from the school system to the corporate world. With a strong desire to pay it forward, Yoga Den supports and contributes to many local fund-raising projects, and in 2003 Alyson created Jacksonville’s annual Turkey Day Detox, which to date has raised over $15,000 for a variety of non-profit charitable organizations.
