Allison Scott

 
Allison has been practicing yoga since 2007 and teaching since 2013, when she received her 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga certification. Since early 2016 she has continued to take and assist trainings for Kripalu School of Yoga and Ayurveda, from which she received her 500-hour certification. Allison holds additional certifications in Yin, Children’s/Special Needs, Hoopyasa, and Ayurvedic Yoga, and is a trained Reiki and Sound Healer. She fuses her passion for these profound modalities together to create a well-rounded and holistic approach to healing and maintaining physical, mental, and energetic balance year-round.

Allison has a very dedicated and heart-centered approach to yoga practice, and encourages this for her students as well. She believes in using yoga as a vehicle to come home to one's Self, and to shed light on those thoughts, patterns and beliefs that continually keep one from fully and truthfully expressing their authentic selves. She teaches a meditative style flow to promote introspection and contemplation using keen awareness of the breath.


Allison Scott instructs the following:
  • Ayurvedic Yoga

  • This is one of our Focusedclasses.

    Ayurveda, known as yoga’s sister science, is an ancient system of holistic healing that supports balance and harmony within the body and with the world around us. An Ayurvedic yoga practice aims to support physical health and balance the energies that flow through us as we are influenced by the seasons and changes in our environment and natural world. These all levels classes include pranayama (breath work), meditation, asana (poses), and insight into the Ayurvedic healing system.


  • Vinyasa Flow I/II

  • This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    Vinyasa Flow I/II is a moderately paced Vinyasa practice that connects movement and awareness to breath in a dynamic sequence. Classes introduce inversions, backbends and arm balances as well as yoga philosophy for students looking to expand their physical practice and deepen their understanding of the many facets of yoga.

  • Yin Yoga
  • This is one of our Focused classes.
     
    Yin Yoga poses are performed seated or lying down using props and slow transitional movements that massage and lubricate the body’s sheath of connective tissue as well as the mind’s power of observation. Sustaining each pose for a period of time pairs intentional stillness with steady compression to signal a “rest and restore” mode for the central nervous system thus promoting digestion, muscle repair and organ detoxification.

  • Core Flow
  •  
    This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    Core Flow classes teach students to move from their center during strengthening Vinyasa sequences. Emphasis is placed on how awareness of the body’s power center impacts and sustains every pose. Cultivation of the core enhances balance, embodiment, confidence and grace.

  • Heated Immersion Flow

  • This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    In this Vinyasa-style class, students explore their personal and physical edge—as well as self-awareness and intention—by cultivating core stability through complex poses (such as inversions and balancing postures) in sequences that invite precision and mindfulness. Yogis stretch and strengthen muscles while energizing the body and stimulating the mind.
     
    This class is done in a heated room. The heat encourages greater flexibility and detoxification. Yoga experience is necessary and students are asked to bring a towel, mat and water.

  • Restorative
  • This is one of our Focused classes.

     

    Restorative Yoga uses blankets, bolsters and pillows to fully support the body in foundational yoga postures, without muscular exertion. Deep but passive, Restorative Yoga can enhance a vigorous practice, and is also well suited for beginners as well as those with injuries. This grounding practice soothes the nervous system and helps boost the immune system.


  • Yoga I/II
  • This is one of our Foundations classes.

     

    This Yoga I/II blended class includes key instruction for beginner yogis, while offering options for experienced yogis to deepen and further their practice. Teachers address various levels while adapting to students' needs.
