Alison Pignolet, E-RYT-200, certified Yoga Tune Up® instructor. Studio owner.
I first studied yoga in high school but drifted away. In 1999, I started to practice again and I fell in love with yoga. It has kept me physically strong and flexible, but more importantly, I am much calmer, more centered. I guess you could say mentally strong and flexible! That’s the amazing thing about yoga—you start because you want to achieve some physical goal, but then something happens. You notice that you deal with stress better, you are less angry, more open-minded.
A couple of years ago I decided I was ready to start sharing what I had learned. While I will always be a student, I was ready to teach. I studied the art of teaching yoga with the amazing Marni Task. Now I’ve fallen in love with teaching!
