I'm Allie!

Welcome to the fam.

I’m a yoga practitioner (like you), 800 hour certified yoga teacher, founder of the Body Mind Soul Studio, CEO of a multiple six-figure company, wife to Myers, and mama to Scarlett Rose (my newest title).

live yoga off the mat

From workout to inner work.

I started my yoga journey in a discount hot yoga class, looking for a serious sweat (delivered!), toned abs, and a way to ease the disappointment I was feeling.

After years of hot vinyasa yoga, hoping that the heat would ring transformation outta me, I learned a better way. I discovered that if I really wanted to “live my journey” and have the freedom and fulfillment I was seeking, I needed a yoga practice that would support me on-the-mat (like it was already doing), and off-the-mat and in my day-to-day life.

So I searched beyond the pose and the superficial promises that so many of us are sold, and realized that only practicing one way or one limb was barely scratching the surface of what was possible.

When I learned to leverage yoga as a whole, it helped me break free from my self-defeating bullshit, gain clarity and confidence, and live with greater purpose.

Ten years later, my yoga practice has taken me from half-assing life to quitting the cubicle, sailing the world, falling deeply in love with my husband, and building an empowering yoga community and business.

 Most importantly, I’ve gained the freedom & autonomy I needed at my core.

Yoga taught me how to play it big, and go all in.

Over the years, I’ve helped thousands of women use yoga to:

Find their center.

Access their inner wisdom.

Shift their mindset.

Manage difficulty & hardship.

Care for their body.

Awaken their soul.

Build a life they love.
