Describe yourself in three words: adventurous, student, lover
Why do you teach Yoga? To share with others the abundance yoga has given me. My mat is my HOME… I teach yoga because I have so much left to learn.
What inspires you? Humans! Nature! The BIG things… but especially the quiet moments.
What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? To live by myself.
Where did you get your training/certifications? 200 Hour (Thrive Yoga), Reiki I and II (Thrive Yoga), currently enrolled in 300 Hour at Thrive Yoga
 
At age 16, Ally found herself on a yoga mat in Frederick, Maryland alongside her stepmom who was pursuing her own yoga teaching career. She'll admit it: she giggled during her first om. Over a decade later she's taught on both the east and west coasts and practiced in several countries around the world. Yoga has profoundly impacted her life; she comes to her mat for fun, for guidance, and sometimes just for the quietness. In her classes you'll slow down so you can listen and connect with your body, with compassion, and with all that's around you. Connection is key; union is yoga.
Yin Yoga explores postures of stillness for promoting growth, clearing energetic blockages, and enhancing circulation. Sequences will target connective tissue: specifically ligaments and tendons in the joints and spine. When lengthening these tissues and releasing energetic knots, we increase our range of motion. Muscles account for about 40% of the resistance against the body's flexibility, while connective tissue accounts for about 50%. Students will receive one-on-one attention for modifications and prop positioning. Great as a therapeutic practice.
