On the Mat with Allison
About this pro
I am working with Alli in June, but she was so friendly on the phone. Easy to work with and set up meetings.Apr 26, 2018Verified
I was looking for a yoga instructor to introduce me to the practice and to help me manage the soreness and work related stress held within my body. Allison has exceeded my expectations with her expertise and patience in teaching me poses which specifically address my needs. After just a few sessions, I have felt much more limber and relaxed overall, and I look forward to incorporateing the practice into my daily routine. I highly recommend Allison as a personal yoga coach for all levels of experience.Apr 8, 2018Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically like to chat with a potential customer on the phone first to ensure it is a good fit for all parties. I like to know if there are any specific goals the potential client is hoping to meet with our sessions and if he or she has any past injuries that we need to address. I also like my clients to know that I am a non-diet/non-weight loss trainer, which means I don't focus on the numbers on the scale. I focus on how exercise feels in the client's body, what makes him or her feel stronger, more balanced and more flexible.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?After many years of feeling like yoga was reserved for the flexible, I signed up for yoga teacher training with Gerhard Gessner at Prana Yoga Center in La Jolla, CA. During the training, I learned to turn my weakness into strength by creating playful sequences that go beyond stretching and tap into the true benefits of personal practice. I have focused my career on helping others become healthier. I hold a Fitness Instruction & Exercise Science Certification from UCSD extension where I expanded my knowledge of metabolic diseases, nutrition for athletes and exercise for special populations including older adults, pregnant women and youth fitness. I work with private yoga and personal training clients, ages 25 to 73, and I teach vinyasa flow classes with an emphasis on proper alignment and breathwork.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always been a fitness enthusiast and a long distance runner. I have been an ACE certified personal trainer since 2012 and I completed my Vinyasa Yoga training at Prana Yoga Center in 2015. I completed my Keiser cycling certification in 2017.
