About The Teacher

My earliest memories are of the sense of freedom and connection that I felt as a barefoot child growing up in the Indiana Dunes - running along the lake shore, toes in the sand and head in the clouds. I went on to fill my life with the observation and study of how we live, feel, think, move, communicate, and interface with the world kinesthetically - our experiences, emotions, senses, minds and bodies working as a whole. While studying multiple disciplines such as dance, the arts, humanities, and sciences, the importance of an integrative approach became clear. My evolution toward a holistic view evolved naturally. Following this path, I began to study Asian therapeutic bodywork, movement, and wellness practices. The theories, philosophy and techniques of traditional Asian health maintenance have become the focus of both my personal and professional life. How we inhabit our bodies and the spaces we move through, how we live within our physical, social, internal and external worlds, has everything to do with our sense of vitality and enthusiasm for life.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
