YOGA BEGINNINGS – YOGA CLASS (CHICAGO)
June 29, 2014 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm| $10.00
Healthy Initiative Foundation is championing disease prevention with awareness, education and solutions for building healthy and joyful lives. Their goal is to defeat obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and other lifestyle diseases in children and adults with transformational ideas and sustainable programs. As an overweight child and the daughter of a father who was taken too soon because of heart disease, Allie holds a special place in her heart for kids and families who must face these diseases head on. Allie knows, through years of struggle, the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the benefits it’s brought to her life. She wants to be able to provide others with the same information she received and to help them see that a healthy and happy life is right at our fingertips.
Allie’s classes combine hard-work, honesty and fun to create an environment where each student can play with and/or discover their own personal practice. Her goal is to get students – whether beginner or experienced – on their mat, feeling their bodies and focusing on their breath. By linking breath with movement, Allie’s classes help students create an energetic yet calming and meditative practice where students leave saying “that’s exactly what I needed.” She strives to help students build confidence and truth within themselves about their own practice that keeps them coming back to the mat years after. Allie believes that yoga is not just a physical practice, but one that combines the mind and spirit to create a beautiful human from the inside out.
Allie teaches a gentle slow-flow, Iyengar-inspired yoga practice where her students focus on body alignment and breathe awareness. Her style-motto “you might not break a sweat, but you’re going to feel it in the morning.” Allie’s classes are perfect for beginners who want to know the basics or for the experienced yogi looking to refine their foundation.
