MY YOGA STORY
I began my practice of yoga in 2006, after I was involved in a traumatic car accident. I found that yoga and meditation was an excellent way to handle pain both physically and emotionally.
It was on a trip to Thailand, the following year, that solidified my interest in yoga for therapeutic healing. In 2011 I left the corporate world and moved to Switzerland with my husband and two dogs. I began to pursue my passion here. After meeting my teacher, Stephen Thomas, in Zurich, Switzerland I began to take an in depth look at my practice and accompanied Stephen on a retreat to Bali.
In Bali, I decided to pursue this passion not only for myself, but to teach to others. The following November I completed a 200- hour intensive teacher training program at Samahita Retreat Center in Koh Samui, Thailand. I became pregnant in early 2013 and began looking for complementary practices.
I enrolled in an 80 hour prenatal yoga training with Sue Elkind, founder of DIG yoga. The journey through pregnancy and birth brought me closest to my practice. I was able to nurture the changes occurring in my body, but also truly understood my limitations. I'm currently enrolled in the 500/1000 hour advanced teacher training with Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine.
I'm here to be of service while embracing the modern body and what serves it best - Allie
