After 15+ years of competitive and performance Irish Step dancing, Ally found yoga as a means to rework and heal many dance related injuries and negative physical health patterns. With a passion for somatic healing, anatomy, and dance, working with Ally is trauma and injury informed physical therapy. Utilizing intelligent asana sequencing and breath to achieve greater depths of feeling and healing, Ally sets a safe container of Divine space and ceremony for her students/clients. Ally uses many tools in this process including Tibetan singing bowls, Tibetan tingsha bells and quartz crystal singing bowls to activate the Theta wave frequency in the brain rendering clients in a deep state of relaxation and meditation.
Ally offers yoga for healing injuries, trauma informed bodywork therapy, creative visualization meditations, astro/tarot advice and life coaching. Ally prioritizes queer, trans and POC clients, and is happy to help anyone achieve healing and success!
