Are you ready to get mentally fit? To reign in the scattered forces of your mind? To regulate your emotions - using breath and movement? To improve your health through mindful yoga, eating, and lifestyle? This is not 'work-out' yoga - this is for your nervous system, it's a 'work-in' to build resilience.
Whether you are just beginning your journey with yoga or a veteran practitioner you are welcome in my classes. Classes are designed to suit all levels and all body types - breath and body awareness are emphasized.
Classes are not focused on fitness - though fitness can be a by-product of the yoga practice, my classes are designed to help you slow down, find your breath, and relax. Easing stress and replenishing your energy.
"The quality of the breath is directly related to the quality of the mind." Focusing on the breath, making it softer, quieter - leads to a quiet, peaceful mind. All of my classes are designed to keep you in your body and focused on the quality of the breath.
After I retired, I started taking yoga classes, and I have taken classes from several teachers. Allison combines the best of all my previous teachers. I need the strength, flexibility and balance I get from yoga more and more as I get older, and I improve all of these in every class without being pushed too hard or too little. Allison also provides us with relaxation techniques and wisdom to face our lives outside the yoga studio. All in all, I look forward to every class knowing that my body will will feel wonderful afterwards, and my mind will be at peace.

I have experienced both physical and mental changes as a result of practicing yoga with Allison. The physical changes include stronger core, stronger bones, better balance, and increased flexibility. Mentally I have found that I now have “tools” to help with relaxation. I can use my breathing to calm down and relax, therefore I sleep better. And when times call for more energy, I have learned which poses help with building energy, as well.
I have practiced yoga for ten years under a dozen instructors three of whom have become my favorites because of the special gifts they bring to class. Allison is one of the three and her special gift is the serenity she shares in class. Of course she is great in her choice of poses and alternatives she offers, but the tranquility of her yoga and meditation classes is unparalleled. You will leave her class relaxed, refreshed, grateful, and smiling, I know I always do.

As a person who has taken many yoga classes over the last 10 years, by far the best is Allison Miller’s The Wild Bloom Yoga. Allison takes the time to make sure everyone feels comfortable, she explains the benefits of each pose. Her queues during class are easy to follow. I have noticed many changes in myself since taking Allison’s classes. I am able to calm myself by using the breathing techniques taught in class. These are especially helpful when trying to go to sleep. Allison’s classes are reasonably priced and easy to navigate online. Give one of her classes a try and I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do!
