Allison Broughton came to yoga over 20 years ago for the physical practice, and stayed for the calm, clarity, and peace of mind she found there. She enrolled in her first 200-hr yoga teacher training primarily to deepen her own practice, but after completing the program with Amalam School at Outer Banks Yoga, she couldn’t wait to share her newfound knowledge with others, and immediately began teaching.
In 2017, Allison attended a workshop with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy founder Michael Lee at Satchidananda Ashram – Yogaville, and was inspired by the Phoenix Rising method of tuning into the body to stay present and aware, allowing attention to temporarily shift away from the constant hum of the narrative mind and toward the present-moment experience. The method worked for her, and Allison enrolled in Phoenix Rising’s 500-hr yoga teacher training in January of 2018. She completed the program in August 2019.
Allison is a strong believer in the benefits of yoga as an adjunct to treating addiction, eating disorders, stress, and anxiety, as well as yoga’s overall benefits to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. She has trained in Yoga for 12-Step Recovery and is certified in Restorative Yoga.
Over the years, Allison has experienced first-hand the benefits of yoga and has turned to her practice time and again to stay present and grounded, even during times of change and upheaval. She is so grateful to have the opportunity to share the gift of yoga with her students, and looks forward to each and every class with tremendous joy and gratitude.
