Mindfulness Practices with Allison Ulan

Yoga Classes, Vipassana Meditation Courses and Yoga Teacher Training Programs

Welcome to my website. It is your gateway to practicing mindfulness for your health and well-being. Participate in my classes which align the body, refresh the senses and centre the mind.

Yoga is freedom. Yoga is awareness. Yoga is realizing when we connect, we can relate to our lives with skill and compassion. Everyone comes to Yoga and Meditation for different reasons. Perhaps you take yoga to help you release a tight back, breathe deeper, join a group for mindful fitness or want to connect with people who respect tranquility and focus. Whatever the reason, practicing Yoga cultivates our attention, refines our awareness, increases our empathy and expands our viewpoints. In respectful community, we grow and thrive.

I have been teaching mindfulness based meditation practices and Yoga since 1996. I am a certified Yoga Instructor, a IAYT Therapist and YACEP provider through The Yoga Alliance.  I completed my education and certifications through The Ashtanga Yoga Institute (Mysore, India), The Yoga Workshop/Richard Freeman (Boulder, Colorado) and Spirit Rock Insight Meditation Center (San Rafael, California). Plus, I hold a B.F.A. in Dance from The Juilliard School of Performing Arts (1992). I enjoyed a career in contemporary dance and theatre for 20 years. As a teacher in awareness, my mission is to help you become the expert of yourself through meditation and yoga. My approach integrates mindfulness based practices, somatic movement therapy, yoga and positive psychology to help you embody your optimal health and well-being.

In metta and solidarity, Allison Ulan B.F.A., IAYT, E-RYT 500, YACEP

Autumn 2022 – Yoga Workshops

Embodying the Heart and Skill of the Yoga Teacher:
Exploring Technique and Intuition in Balance for presenting wise and compassionate classes
Online: Module 8 of A Balanced Approach Yoga Teachers Training 2022
September 23rd,  24th and 25th, 2022

This 20 hour Online Yoga Teachers Training addresses how to teach yoga classes that allow people to learn, evolve and recognize their vitality and wisdom. Yoga is freedom. Yoga is balance. Yoga is recognizing our purpose and growing into that depth of our lives. How we present Yoga either allows people to explore this profound path or may block them from exploring living this integrity.

This second weekend will explore at the three essential components to present Yoga classes which motivate, educate and entertain. In July we studied them class sequencing to balance the nervous system and developing effective class plans. This module, we will study the methods of mindful communication, the art of listening and the art of assessing posture to promote postural integration.

This weekend workshop is a module in A Balanced Approach Yoga Teachers Training Yearlong Program 2022. This program is accredited through The Yoga Alliance. You are welcome to participate in one module of your choice or participate in the full program. Certified Yoga Teachers are welcome to attend to continue their professional development and can receive continuing education credits (CECs).
