Alyson Watts 200 hr RYT -started practicing yoga in 2004, but really began studying movement as a child. She spent her youth and early adulthood as a dancer and athlete, and returned to organized classes as a way to relieve stress. Over the next few years she gradually increased the frequency and intensity of her practice in Winston Salem and by taking advantage of business travel to visit studios around the country. She began to realize that, in addition to the physical and mental benefits of yoga, it could serve as a creative outlet as well. She was inspired by a trip to Sivananda Ashram in 2011 to pursue her yoga study even further and completed 200-hour teacher training with Stephanie Keach at Asheville Yoga Center in 2012. Alyson views teaching as the natural next step on her yoga path. Her classes are upbeat yet mindful and use music to inspire movement. She strives to bring  creativity to her sequencing and hopes students have half as much fun participating in her classes as she has leading them.
