Alison Walter has been practicing yoga for over fifteen years.
Prior to teaching, Alison classically trained as an actor and dancer, performing in plays, films, commercials, & music videos in NYC/LA.
After five years working in the industry, Alison craved a modality where she could utilize her skills as a performer to help people connect with their mind, body, and spirit. Seeking an answer, she attended a Yoga and Meditation workshop at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. It was here Alison realized she wanted to be a yoga teacher. Her education began at Kripalu Center in Stockbridge, MA where she received a 200 hour intensive training in 2015. Shortly after, she received her Kids Yoga teacher training from HOSH in Brooklyn, NY. In 2016, Alison co-lead a workshop in Costa Rica that focused on public speaking using yoga, meditation, and techniques from her performance training. In 2018 she received her 300 hour intensive training while living in an ashram near Quito, Ecuador. Since receiving trainings, Alison has introduced yoga to 1,000+ children in public, charter, and special needs schools. Her classes for adults have brought her to studios, music festivals, parks, and in fields surrounded by goats. Alison is passionate about helping others connect to the Self, generate mental and physical resilience, and foster a sense of play.
She currently teaches online yoga at The Virtual Studio, which was created by fellow Kripalu graduate, Erinn Chang.
