Wellness Consultants

Allison

Optimal Wellness was founded in 2020 by Allison who is passionate about helping others live a balanced, healthy, and happy life. Like many yogis, Allison began her practice following her passion for physical fitness. She trained for years as a bodybuilder lifting weights and exercising in a gym, where she took her first yoga classes. Beyond poses and stretching, yoga struck Allison as a way to balance and care for herself. Through asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), and dhyana (meditation), she developed a love for yoga not only as a physical practice but also as a lifestyle and perspective. Allison completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in April 2016 and she embraces a powerful practice with a healthy sense of fun and compassion. She is eager to help others find sthira sukha (steadiness and ease) in their own practices and everyday lives. She hopes to share a positive light in the fitness and yoga community around the world.
