Health for Body and Mind with Allison Ulan

Yoga, Pilates and Vipassana Meditation

Welcome to my website and your pathway to practicing Yoga, mindful movement and meditation for your health and well-being.  My classes are based in Yoga, Pilates and Vipassana Meditation. 

Yoga and Pilates my main avenue of teaching.  Yoga’s main principle is that we can attain freedom through awareness. PIlates approach is through exercises which retune the core body functional strength and agility. Both modalities offer numerous methods to cultivate health so you can embody your innate intelligence and vitality.

Everyone comes to my classes for different reasons. Some people take class to release tension in the body, others to revitalize their health and others to train their concentration. For whatever reason you participate, you will learn the ABC’s of body awareness & fitness, postural dynamics for all ages and mental intelligence.

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 2000 to 2009, Certified in 2004), The Yoga Workshop/Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor (Boulder, Colorado 1998 to 2014), IMS (Barre, Massachusetts) and Spirit Rock Insight Meditation Center (San Rafael, California, Mindful Meditation Certification in 2015). 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. Because of my arts experience, I have been integrating the creative principles of the performance arts into my classes so the path of awaken is interesting, liberating, joyful  and relevant.

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