Allie began to practice yoga in 2004 when she was 16 and fell in love with Ashtanga. She practiced throughout college, often practicing at Red Pearl on her breaks. She graduated UF in 2010 with a B.A. in English from Florida State University.
Allie earned her Yoga Teaching Certification in 2011 right here at Red Pearl under the guidance of Lisa Pumper, Joy Kochmer and Surrendran Panderan.
Allie now inspires her Yoga students through her well-loved Gentle and Vinyasa classes. She also is an Educational Teacher, working with special needs children and gives it her all, as only Allie can.
Allie is continually inspired by the balance and serenity that yoga brings to her life, and her need to be present for her “kids”, her family and friends. And herself.
