My name is Ally and I identify as queer, non-binary and femme. I have a background in competitive Irish step dancing, which led me to yoga 13+ years ago as a means of physical therapy and recovery. Yoga gave me a new way of relating to my body and furthered my pursuit of holistic healing. In 2017 I received my first 200 hour RYT with Anna Forrest. This yoga teacher training included a 20 hour Structural Anatomy training led by Ellen Heed. It completely restructured the foundation of my life and led me to further my study of Somatic Therapies. I completed my first Yoga Bodyworker’s Certificate in 2018 and the same year I completed a 6 month Life Coaching program. My trainings include: Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga, Forrest Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama breathwork, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral bodywork and Polyvagal Therapy, as well as Mindfulness meditation. Additionally, I am a Level 2 Certified Sound Healer. My approach to all of my healing work is to bring the mind into the body, release judgment over the self and become an active but objective observer of the emotions and experience. I seek to guide my students and clients to listen to today’s body and only do what part of the work they can do by respecting their own limits and leaning in to intuition.
