Alison Bode

Alison Bode has a long history of interest in health and fitness, but made a point of avoiding yoga for years because she was never very flexible. With the encouragement of a friend, she attended her first yoga class in 2010. She loved the feeling of peace and grounding it gave her and has been hooked ever since.

Alison received her B.A in Philosophy from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo in 2011. After graduation, she went on to study massage at California Holistic Institute, Esalen Institute and The Academy of Clinical Massage. In 2016, Alison completed her yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, North America’s largest residential center for holistic health education.

In her yoga teaching, Alison approaches each person as an individual. It is her strong belief that yoga is for everyone. Her teaching is based in Kripalu yoga; often described as mindful hatha practice or meditation in motion, Kripalu yoga moves at a moderate pace, with room for both quiet and fiery approaches within the same session. Kripalu yoga places a special emphasis on using the wisdom of your own body, breath, and inner voice to find the right combination of exertion, release and restoration for each individual. Alison takes care to teach classes that can accommodate a wide variety of experiences; she is committed to helping others connect to their own bodies and experiences through breath and meditative movement. Always learning more, Alison is currently working towards a masters degree in Occupational Therapy."
