yoga for every body

Alison Eliason

She enjoys practicing and teaching viniyoga and creating a yoga practice that meets student needs and aspirations.  

She became a certified yoga instructor in 2000 with Ellen Morell. Alison has studied locally and abroad. She spent time at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India. And in 2008, spent time with Collette Crawford to deepen her understanding of prenatal yoga. She graduated in November of 2010 from a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training with Laura Yon. She continues to deepen her practice of the eight limbs of yoga through personal practice, group classes and private sessions.

She currently leads classes for adults, private sessions, retreats and the instructor certification program. Alison incorporates yoga techniques into her daily life to help bring peace, balance and joy into living. She has two adult children and a supportive husband.  

Yoga has helped her to breathe easier, be aware of her body, mind and spirit, notice her fears and judgments, and based on those observations, continue in her journey to be and create peace. She invites all ages and abilities to experience the compassionate studio setting and yoga teachings at Discover Yoga. Please contact Alison at

Alison Eliason instructs the following:
  • Morning Inspiration - Level 2
  • A 75 or 90-minute yoga practice for students familiar with yoga. This class focuses on breath awareness through a slower mindfulness practice and synchronized movement in traditional viniyoga postures. Students are offered ways to build strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, focus and relaxation through asana, pranayama, chanting and meditation. Students are encouraged to honor their own abilities. Choices are given during the yoga practice and students are encouraged to adapt postures to simplify or offer challenge. Let the instructor know if you have any physical limitations or questions. Refer to the instructor bio for teaching style and background.

  • Mindful Movement - Level 1
  • A 75-minute yoga practice for beginning students and those returning to yoga after a break. This class focuses on posture, flexibility, joint safety, intentional movement and breathing in a supportive, non-competitive environment. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace and listen to their bodies whether that means physical limitations or a desire to go deeper. Refer to the instructor bio for teaching style and background.

  • Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Come and enjoy a combination of movement and seated meditation. The movement will include traditional yoga postures and walking in and outside the studio. The seated meditation will included guided visualizations, mantra and breath. The seven weeks will be focused on the seven main energy centers called the chakras. We will start at the root or first chakra. If there is interest in continuing the Mindful Meditation class, we will. Express your interest in the current series with your presence.

    The benefits of meditation are realized when practiced daily. This class is intended to be a weekly group synergistic experience to inspire your home practice. Previous meditation experience is not required. A willingness to practice acceptance, compassion and kindness for your thoughts, words and actions toward yourself and others is encouraged.
