Allison started practicing yoga over four years ago at Yoga Tree while living in San Francisco. Initially, she practiced as a complement to running but yoga quickly took hold of her and became her favorite way to center herself, de-stress and exercise. Ally recently moved to Portsmouth and completed her 200 hours RYT certification at O2 Yoga in Boston. She graduated from Boston College in 2004 with a degree in Theology and Philosophy and later went back to BC to earn her M.A. in Pastoral Ministry. Her background is in teaching high school students and now she is thrilled to apply her teaching experience to yoga. She has an addiction to handstands, green tea and social media and she loves how yoga has made its way off her mat and into the rest of her world.
