ACE certified personal trainer

About Allison

After many years of feeling like yoga was reserved for the flexible, I signed up for yoga teacher training with Gerhard Gessner at Prana Yoga Center in La Jolla, CA. During the training, I learned to turn my weakness into strength by creating playful sequences that go beyond stretching and tap into the true benefits of personal practice. I have focused my career on helping others become healthier.

I hold a Fitness Instruction & Exercise Science Certification from UCSD extension where I expanded my knowledge of metabolic diseases, nutrition for athletes and exercise for special populations including older adults, pregnant women and youth fitness. I work with private yoga and personal training clients, ages 25 to 73, and I teach vinyasa flow classes with an emphasis on proper alignment and breathwork.

I work with clients of all ages, abilities and sizes, taking a non-diet/non-weight loss approach to health at every size.  My mission is to make everyone feel good in their bodies today.
