Allison Andersen, E-RYT 500, CHHCOwner and Lead Teacher Trainer
Class styles I teach: Gentle Hatha, Hatha 1 and Yoga Nidra
My favorite yoga posture: Virabhadrasana II (Warrior II). It makes me feel strong, focused and grounded.
Fur babies: The small dog variety pack: long haired Chihuahua , long haired Dachshund and two Yorkshire Terrorists. And a ridiculously cool tuxedo cat: Kitty Andersen. They all just sort of found us and we just sort of said, ok, come on in.
My favorite Quote: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman
Why I yoga: For me, yoga encompasses so much more than the physical postures. I truly love the philosophy of yoga. It was my belief system long before I knew it had a name so when I came to yoga, it was like coming home.
My passions outside of yoga: Travel would absolutely top the list. Being in foreign countries whether it’s the developing world, like India or the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, I always learn something about myself. I always learn a better way of being. I also learn some of the great innovations that haven’t made it here yet as well as the value of keeping things simple.
