Alison Kennedy, RYT
Alison came to yoga in 2009 as a result of a chronic illness. After earning her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification, she delved into an intensive training in Ayurveda, which included study in the healing arts of Shirodhara and Abhyanga. Alison’s awareness of the potential power in the somatic practice of yoga deepened and she was drawn to study the psychological and physiological fields, including how fascia profoundly impacts everything from posture and movement to the body’s internal rhythms. This led her to complete trainings in Positional Therapy, Yin Yoga, and Trauma Informed Teaching.
Alison holds a certificate in Early Child Development and had an early career as a preschool teacher. The natural progression into yoga included earning her certification in Child Light Yoga. She approaches her practice and teaching as she does her life, showing up to each class and appointment in the most authentic and honest way possible. In her uniquely warm, compassionate and engaging way, Alison delights in sharing the joy found in her practice. It is her hope that through her own varied life experiences she can help facilitate a journey of self-healing and love for all her yoga students and Ayurveda clients.
Alison offers Shirodhara at Namaste Studios.
