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 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 are visiting this website to help you release a tight back, breathe deeper, join a group for mindful fitness or connect with people who respect tranquility and focus. Whatever the reason, coming together grounds our attention, refines our awareness and opens our viewpoints. In respectful community, we grow and thrive.

I have been teaching mindfulness based 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. 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
