Ally discovered yoga in 2012 as a way to counterbalance the stress long-distance running put on her body. What initially began as a weekly cross-training class at the YMCA turned into a lifelong passion for the practice and discipline of yoga. Through all of life’s challenges, yoga has become a steady anchor for Ally, revealing over and over again just how healing and powerful the integration of mind, body, and breath can be. In 2018, she felt inspired to deepen her holistic knowledge of yoga and share her passion with others by enrolling in and graduating from Invoke’s 200-hr teacher training program with Ahna Hoke and Cheryl Milton. As a teacher, Ally focuses on safe, effective alignment and dynamic, energetic movement. She believes that by challenging ourselves on the mat, often surprising ourselves by what we’re capable of, we strengthen our minds, bodies, and spirits––readying ourselves for whatever life may bring.
