Yoga with Allison Parks Dugas

Monday, September 03, 2018, 09:00am - 10:30am

This class will take a "beginners mind" approach and explore various aspects of flowing in and out of basic classical yoga poses; whether you are brand new to yoga or desire a simple pace, you will appreciate this fundamental approach. Each class begins with a brief sharing of yoga philosophy, creating a simple theme for each class. These offerings help the student understand the holistic science of yoga, and how to bring it into our daily lives and everyday actions.

Possible topics draw from yogic texts as well as the experience of teachers and students, including the healing benefits of yoga to body, mind, and spirit; the daily practice; mindfulness; ethical behavior; nutrition and cleansing; positive thinking; mastery of our thoughts; energy work and enlightenment.

You are encouraged to go at your own pace and listen to your body.

Drop-ins welcome 

Allison Parks Dugas

parks dugas allisonAllison Parks Dugas has been teaching yoga since 2010 and is registered with the Yoga Alliance. She is a graduate of the YogaLife Institute of NH's 200-hour and advanced 300 hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training programs and has completed an additional 300 hour training in Comprehensive Yoga Therapy at Yogalife. She began her yoga journey in 1999 studying Ashtanga and vinyasa-style yoga. She was drawn to the benefits of a physical practice. When she discovered the YogaLife Institute’s Teacher Training program, she was at a different place in her life, married with two small children, she wanted to prioritize her self-care and expand her understanding of yoga to help her navigate life better. This deeper dive into yoga included not only the physical practices but also the mental, spiritual and philosophical elements as well as a gentler form. It has helped her to feel whole and at peace despite what goes on around her. It has helped her understand suffering and apply the tools of yoga to help alleviate it. Prior to teaching yoga, Allison earned her masters degree in Elementary Education and was a 4th grade teacher. Being a former gymnast and figure skater, Allison has gravitated toward exploring the relationship of how the body, breath and mind relate to one another and how they are a vehicle to connect to our true nature, our authentic self. Yoga has truly been a gift to her and she enjoys sharing that gift with others in her studio classes, workshops, one-on-one and as a senior teacher in the Yogalife teacher training programs. Even when she is off her mat, she continues to practice yoga by bringing the tools and benefits she has gained from the practice into her day-to-day life.
