Allison Eaton, E-RYT 500, YACEP®, Reiki Master Teacher
Allison is known to draw the authentic self out of her students, empowering them to practice and teach from the heart. Her teaching style is supported by extensive background training in Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Iyengar and Bhakti Yoga and meditation. A healthy balance of Yang Flow Yoga and Yin Restorative Yoga is a central focus of her trainings at Yandara.
Meditation is integrated through Allison’s teachings. During the teacher training, she introduces various methods of meditation, including vipassana and mindfulness meditation, walking meditation, chakra meditation, pranayama (breath meditation), mudra (hand gestures) and chanting. Tai Chi and Chi Gong influence the movement meditations that she offers.

What can I say, WOW! Allison absolutely exemplified the combination of Yogini, Leader, Professional, Spiritual Guide and Consummate Teacher.
