Alison finished a 300hr. yoga teacher training in 2007 at Bodhi Tree Yoga. After completing her teacher training course, most of the students, as well as Kim Lawrence, travelled to India to study and practice with some amazing yoga instructors. She continues to attend yoga seminars and retreats in the city and surrounding area. In 2013 she completed an online pranayama course with Micheal Stone. Alison practices yoga everyday whether it’s asana practice, meditation, or even living the yamas and niyamas. She finds that she isn’t living authentically unless she is practicing. Alison has made life-long friends through teacher training and attending yoga classes throughout her yoga career. She continues to meet and practice with interesting and inspiring people. Students in her classes enjoy a feeling of community as they all get to know each other over time. She encourages people to ask questions, have fun, and stay in the moment. Alison has always been an active person so has found that yoga asana practice has enriched the other activities she enjoys, especially cycling and running after her two young kids! She is very involved with the Regina Cycling Club and has been competing in road bike racing all over Canada including Gran Fondo events. Not only has yoga been beneficial physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. Alison loves to incorporate meditation and breathing techniques in the classes she teaches. The stillness and happiness that can be gained from a quiet mind is something she loves to share with her students. The yoga styles Alison loves to teach include Flow yoga, Iyengar inspired yoga, and restorative yoga.
