Allison Andersen, E-RYT 500

Working through her own health and food issues, Allison found there was a food connection to every health issue she studied. And so she decided to become a food investigator. She embarked on a nutrition odyssey that led her through a maze of misinformation, media pressure and conflicting truths to arrive at a place of understanding, compassion and the knowledge that each person is different. Through her thorough investigation she also learned, it’s never only about the food. Her trip around the nutritional world led her to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City where she received a certificate as a Certified Holistic Health Counselor with accreditation through Columbia University’s Teacher’s College. Interested in the blood type connection to diet she also became a certified fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality. Allison is board certified through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Allison teaches classes in holistic nutrition and wellness at Red Sun Yoga, where she is also the manager, and at the Florida School for Holistic Living, in addition to counseling private clients. You can also hear Allison on WPRK FM 91.5 every other Tuesday on her holistic living radio show: Vibrant Living Orlando.

My favorite yoga posture: Sirsasana/Headstand: I love the shift in perspective and feeling how the strength in my core has developed with my practice. What once seemed impossible is now easy.

Fur babies: 9 kitties, plus fosters. I was fascinated by cats as a child, but we had dogs as pets. Never would have guessed I'd be a crazy cat lady, but I adore them so much! I fall in love with just about every cat I meet.

My favorite Quote: Be mindful of your thoughts, your thoughts become your words. Be mindful of your words, your words become your actions. Be mindful of your actions, your actions become your habits. Be mindful of your habits, your habits become your character.

Why I yoga:Yoga has drastically changed my life. I found something I didn't realize I was looking for in the practice. I've learned much about myself and how I want to live my life. I've found so much peace and contentment.

My passions outside of yoga: I love exploring forests and spend as much time hiking in the woods as possible, journeying into the mountains to camp by myself a couple of times each year. I enjoy photographing wildlife, glimpsing into the lives of animals and capturing their astounding beauty.

Jen Miller

Jen’s journey with yoga started at time when she felt nothing could go right. Helpless and lost she turned to yoga. Witnessing the effects on her physical body right away, Jen became aware of herself. Her love of self grew as well as her spirituality. In 2014 she decided it was time for transformation and took the leap into teacher training. There she discovered her calling in life and went on to receive an additional certification in Kid’s Yoga. Jen’s classes are fun and playful. She will guide and support you on your journey to your true self through asana, yogic philosophy and pranayama.
“My purpose in life is to bring the gift of yoga to as many people as I can. I feel it’s extremely important to share yoga with parents and children. The key to a bright future is through peaceful, compassionate children.”
Extra gentle postures using bolsters, blankets and pillows to help restore equanimity and release stress. Followed by a full yoga nidra to create a deep sense of renewal.
