Allyn Cioban has spent 35 years as a dedicated practitioner of body kinetics and the movement arts, sixteen as a fitness instructor. She completed her 200-hour Teacher Training with Tamal Dodge and is a registered vinyasa flow yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. Allyn practices regularly with her favorite teachers: Bryan Kest, Jerome Mercier, Rudy Mettia and Tamal Dodge.
Yoga has played a transformative role in Allyn’s life. It has helped her quiet her mind of the habitual, incessant, and often negative thoughts she’s had most of her life, allowing her the awareness to deliberately choose thoughts that are empowering and make her feel good. It has also helped her create a meaningful, personal spiritual practice, producing a sense of balance and wellbeing in her life. Her yoga practice has also provided the delightful benefits of strengthening and toning her body while continually releasing tension and stress from it.
Allyn’s classes are challenging enough for experienced practitioners, yet simple enough and totally approachable for newer yogis. She uses visualizations, positive affirmations, and breath-work to create a meditative flow, while still focusing on proper body alignment. She invites you to share her passion for personal growth, physical movement and deep connection with our true selves by practicing with her.
Allyn also works as a Mind Body Mentor and has created a twelve week curriculum that helps people who struggle with body image issues, weight concerns and physical ailments. Her program, called YES (Your Essential Self), has been likened to “the Secret for your mind and body” and is a positive, fun and natural way to learn to make healthy choices feel easy and inspired from within.
Allyn is available for Yoga and YES private sessions with individuals,
groups and corporations.
