We are not machines. We are not meant to wake up and feel or act the same way every day. There are ebbs and flows in how we feel, our energy, our willingness to connect or need to withdraw. We are natural, seasonal beings. When you pay attention to what is happening in nature, you may notice similar changes or happenings within. Understanding this allows you to connect to your body’s innate wisdom and the inherent joy of living in balance from season to season.
Join Alison Olt Kerr and Casey Hubbell for a two-hour workshop to prepare for the new season. Spring is a shift toward longer days, a season of energy, vitality and creation. The first hour of the workshop will dive into the impact of season change on how you feel, act, and behave and offer options for greater balance and ease through daily rituals influenced by Ayurveda, the science of life. The last hour will be an asana practice that includes Sun Salutations, postures that engage and stretch your legs, and twists to invigorate and prepare for this dynamic season. Yoga beginners welcome.

Alison first arrived on her mat 30 years ago, began teaching in 2014, and remains in awe of the healing power of this practice. She honors both the science and spirit of yoga, leads with curiosity, and endeavors to help students rediscover their personal agency and rhythm. Outside of class, you'll find Alison walking her talk and in the woods - usually with her people and funny pup in tow.
My yoga path began in 2000 in a college-town in North Texas. Initially I was drawn to the physical challenge. The strange shapes and newfound strength in my body was exhilarating. Over time, the appeal of my yoga practice shifted. I'm drawn to the silence and stillness when feeling overwhelmed. I feel creative and energized after a challenging flow. I am connected and find community when traveling or moving some place new. There are so many styles of yoga. So many shapes and ways to practice. As a student, I love learning how to study and care for my self (body and mind) which allows me to care for those around me and beyond.
In 2012, I completed a 200-hr Anusara TT with Silvia Mordini's Alchemy of Yoga and a 200-hr Power Yoga TT with CorePower Yoga. The former embraced creativity, flow, and the healing and transformative powers of yoga while the latter offered structure, form and technique. In my classes I blend these styles. I teach heart-centric, intentional flows using clear cues and offering many ways to personalize. I also completed Next Generation Yoga's kids training so a little silliness and play can be expected as well.
