Attended Hot Vinyasa Flow class this morning at Serenity Yoga Studio. It was an excellent and challenging session, allowing me to start my day with purpose, exercise and deep stretches. I’ll be back for another class soon!
Alyson has dedicated herself to the practice, study and teaching of yoga since discovering its joys and benefits in 2002, while attending a yoga workshop lead by Rodney Yee. Alyson went on to become a 200- hour certified teacher 2009. Since then she been trained and completed a 500- Hour Teacher Training with Rolf Gates, Alyson has also trained in the disciplines of Vinyasa Flow (Seane Corn), Iyengar (Rodney Yee), Core Strength Vinyasa (Sadie Nardini), Alyson combines elements of these styles into a dynamic and inspiring alignment-based flow. Alyson teaches a creative and energetic Vinyasa Flow. Emphasizing clarity of alignment, a steady connection to the breath, and a mindful investigation of what qualities we are truly cultivating in our practice. At first when I began practicing yoga it was for exercise. I have never heard of mindfulness, connection, Om or Namaste for that matter. I was working in the corporate world as a Human Resource Director and was stressed out. Something had to change. After taking my first class my body felt alive, I didn't understand it I just wanted more. I truly believe that when we are ready “yoga calls us”. We begin to ask the questions “What is life, why am I hear, is this IT?!” If we listen to those inner burning questions we stumble onto yoga. First for the exercise but then it becomes so much more…. My experiences, the ups and downs are shared in each and every class I teach. I enjoy inspiring people to be the “true self”. Yoga meets you in the body you show up in. So come as you are and if you are still not sure of 'who you are' yoga will help you figure it out. One breath at a time.
