Allison Parks Dugas, RYT500
Allison Parks Dugas is certified with the Yoga Alliance and is a graduate of the YogaLife Institute of NH's 200-hour and 500-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training programs and Level 1 of the Comprehensive Yoga Therapy program. She began her yoga practice in 1999 studying Ashtanga and vinyasa-style yoga. She was drawn to the benefits of a physical practice; connecting the mind and body through the breath, becoming more present, reducing stress, and learning how to truly relax along with gaining strength and flexibility. When she discovered the YogaLife Institute's Teacher Training program, she was able to expand her understanding to include the mental, spiritual and philosophical elements as well as a gentler form. She believes yoga has been a gift in her life and she enjoys sharing it with others. When she is off her mat, she tries to bring the benefits of her practice and mindfulness into her day-to-day life.
