Alison Zimmer is a Yoga Shakti 500 hour certified yoga instructor who grew up in Huntington Beach, CA. She took her first yoga class in 2008 at California State University Long Beach because she needed one more unit to graduate from college. Yoga provided Alison with the right amount of effort and ease; she was challenged in a whole new way and hooked from the start. Alison describes teaching yoga as a connection that has no words. Her students inspire creativity in her teaching, while her Yoga Shakti training provides her with the knowledge to be authentic. She loves to nurture her students and frequently uses essential oils to create a unique experience in her classes.
