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. After earning her Bachelors in Business Administration from Kent State, Allison completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at One Love Yoga & Boutique in 2016. She embraces a powerful practice with a healthy sense of fun and compassion, and is eager to help others find sthira sukha (steadiness and ease) in their own practices and everyday lives. In her spare time Allison loves to travel, go to concerts and shows, play with animals, bake and cook, learn about nutrition, read, and spend time with family. One day, she hopes, she’ll teach yoga on the beach.
Allison Yanci instructs the following:
For the beginner or the student who has been away from their practice for awhile, this basic yoga class focuses on awareness of breath and the connection with movement. It also awakens the relationship between mind and body as you learn the alignment principals and postural patterns of beginner yoga. Strength and muscle endurance isn't necessary but will be gained with regular attendance.
