yoga and sound bath
at Limbsnapping Music Festival
"Alison’s yoga flow was super pleasant. The way in which she instructed the students was gentle and engaging.
It was nice to be able to stretch all the muscles that we tend to forget about.
I felt physically lighter and connected to myself after her session.
I highly recommend her yoga practice to anyone who is looking to find deeper connections to self."
"Alison's yoga class was the perfect way to start a Saturday morning.
She led an outdoor all-level class that had us all beaming with physical and mental energy by the end."
~Owen from Oak Park, IL
"It was truly the most wonderful and unique yoga class I have ever been to. I particularly loved the joy and sincerity that Alison brought to the experience through her words. She managed to cultivate a sense of relaxed fun and whimsicalness without sacrificing an ounce of intention or focus.
The whole experience was a lovely way to start the day through physical activity, but more than that, it was truly spiritually cleansing.
The sound bath was amazing!
It was a special class all around.

"Alison's guidance was very kind and comfortable. Her pacing was exactly what it needs to be, she never said too much, to allow the folks to feel the relaxation. She appreciates the passion of keeping peace... that carries on with you to the next time, or every time you want that peace to come back. It was a very memorable experience. I loved it. After class I felt great, less anxious, more comfortable in letting go...Very ready and receptive."

She made us feel as though we were relaxing at the same time as we were exercising. Therefore it wasn't stressful, it was good for my body. After class, I feel more released."
~Ryan from Boulder, Colorado
"I thought that Alison kept every single person in mind when teaching the practice. No matter what level, you could do this and feel challenged in some way. She gave me a different perspective in terms of what I'm thinking about when I'm doing the poses. The pace was perfect, and her voice is so calming and soothing. I zoned out a lot, I loved it.
