Health for Body and Mind with Allison Ulan

Yoga, Pilates and Vipassana Meditation

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

Yoga is my main avenue of teaching.  Yoga’s main principle is that we can attain freedom through awareness. Yoga offers numerous methods to cultivate clarity so we can resource our innate intelligence and compassion. Good news, everyone possesses these innate qualities and skills.

Everyone comes to Yoga and Meditation 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 come to Yoga, it is all based on steady  awareness. Cultivated awareness shifts us from biased perceptions towards open embodied awareness.  As our field of awareness increases, our emotional intelligence and discernment strengthen.

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 and Mary Taylor (Boulder, Colorado), IMS (Barre, Massachusetts) 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. Since 1996, I have been integrating the creative principles of the performance arts into Hatha Yoga and Meditation 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
