Alison Scola, Yoga Instructor
It was the gift of chronic back/neck pain that brought Alison to her yoga practice in 1993. After the first class she knew she had found a powerful tool to return her body to its natural state of health. As her practice unfolded, she also found that her body would provide a road map to emotional, energetic, and spiritual healing. Inspired to share yoga with others and a desire to go deeper in her own practice, Alison completed her 200 hour certification in 2007 at the acclaimed White Lotus Foundation with Ganga White and Tracey Rich. She went on to complete her professional yoga therapy certificate from Integrative Yoga Therapy with Joseph and Lillian Le Page and received certification from Michaelle Edwards in Yogalign, a dynamic form of yoga therapy that restructures the entire body for functional biomechanics. Alison’s perspective on yoga as a holistic healing modality inspires her to teach awareness and integration of the physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual elements. She views yoga as a way of life that connects us with our innate inner wisdom and endless capacity for compassion and self-love. In addition to working with private clientele and teaching group classes, Alison is leading teacher trainings and retreats at Southern California Wellness Centers and exotic destinations abroad.
