Fascinated by the intricate relationship between the mind and body, Allison has studied and taught yoga as well as other mind-body work for several years. She began as a gymnast at the age of 5 and in her teens dived into the world of martial arts. Following her passion of language, Allison moved to Costa Rica where she worked for the Arias Foundation for Peace and Human Progress, became fluent in Spanish, wrote content for several websites and received her 3rd degree black belt. The journey had just begun when she stepped into her first yoga teacher training in NYC at Sonic Yoga and knew that her heart aligned with the principles of yoga.
Years later equipped with a dedicated yoga and meditation practice, Allison found her home at Yoga Culture in Danbury, CT. Here she was able to refine her skills as a yoga teacher focusing on using the nuances of language to instruct students clearly and purposefully. Allison continues to study yoga and anatomy with Jenny Schuck, Jason Crandell, Carrie Owerko and Jason Brown. Allison’s teachings are a reflection of what she learns practicing daily on her mat coupled with the yoga she experiences all around her in life.
In addition to teaching and managing Yoga Culture, Allison contributes as a writer regularly to Yoga International and has released an MP3 Yoga Nidra Meditations to Relax and Move Forward.
Allison is excited to bring her knowledge and skills to the students of Westchester Yoga Arts, help guide innovative and curious yoga teachers and students to dive in deeper into their studies and acquire skills that will improve their teaching and overall fascination with the art of teaching yoga.

This is by far the best yoga studio around!!! The instructors are all friendly and treat you a like a person and take a personal interest in your yoga journey. I've learned so much about and about life in general from each instructor and have built relationships with them as well. When you attend class you are not just a participant, but an actual member of class. They also offer other classes including belly dancing and one of the best Zumba classes around!!! I look forward to continuing my journey with this studio!!! I highly recommend joining!!!
From the moment I walked into the studio I felt at peace. The welcoming staff even stated "welcome home!" What a way to begin my first experience with yoga! I joined that day after my first class: candlelit yoga! So calming and relaxing yet challenging in its own way! After one week of yoga I feel stronger and much more relaxed! I would recommend this to anyone and cannot wait to go tomorrow!!!!
It's a place you can go to without stress. Just relax enjoy the direction of the great teachers and come out feeling like a new person. I want all to know that it has helped me get thru my back surgery and help me move like I did before. Thanks to all the teachers especially Faith Daniels for her great back classes. Lv them
I've been going to WYA since January. It's become my safe haven. Not only have I enjoyed the classes--I take everything from gentle yoga to the more rigorous flow classes--but the studio also just has a lovely energy about it. It's one of those intangible things you can feel when you walk into the lobby. No matter my state when I walk in, my inner state is always vastly improved by the time I leave.
I have an unlimited all class access pass from Westchester Yoga Arts and it is the best. Whenever I have a stressful day or need a change, I am there, signing in a class. I’ve now done classes with all the teachers, and done yoga, zumba and belly dance. It feels good knowing that I can get a spiritual detox through yoga whenever I want to. It is complete mind and body nourishment. Thumbs up.
