Health of Body and Mind with Allison Ulan

Yoga, Pilates and Vipassana Meditation Courses

Welcome to my website. It is your gateway to practicing Yoga and mindfulness for your health and well-being through Yoga, Pilates and Vipassana Meditation. 

Yoga is my main avenue of teaching.  Yoga is 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 skills and capacities.

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 concentration. For whatever reason you come to Yoga, it is all based on grounded awareness. At the core of Yoga is a cultivated awareness which shifts us from biased perceptions towards open embodied awareness.  As our embodiment increases, our emotional intelligence and discernment increase.

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 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 1995, I have been integrating the creative principles of the performance arts into Hatha Yoga and Meditation so this path of awaken is interesting, liberating and relevant. My approach weaves together the mindfulness based practices, somatic movement therapy and traditional yoga.

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