Her connection to movement and speech

began at the neighborhood community theatre.

She attended acting and dance classes,

and performed in plays, musicals, and variety shows.

Seeking new adventures after graduating,

Alison drove across the country to Los Angeles. She performed

in numerous plays, films, music videos, and commercials. 

 

After 5 years, Alison felt that something was missing.

In search of the answer, she drove to Esalen Institute in Big Sur

for a Yoga and Meditation Workshop.
