Sunset Year for the Carrboro version of Heart of Yoga School

Allison will continue teaching at beautiful locations throughout NC inside Nature.

As the Carrboro School closes December 2018, a new chapter begins.

The School will continue on, but in a different form and no longer in Carrboro. Allison will be offering teachings inside nature in her favorite places and under her favorite trees, occasionally outside at the farm she lives on in Snow Camp, sometimes up in the mountains at the top of her favorite waterfalls, and occasionally beside the Haw River near Saxapahaw. Already Edwin Bryant and K. Sridhar have agreed to teach this way, inside nature, which both say is the traditional Vedic way. Allison won’t be leading Yoga Teacher Trainings in 2019 in NC, but may once again at some point down the road; however she’d be happy to visit as a guest teacher inside local and distant Teacher Trainings to teach Bhakti, Harmonium, Jyotish, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, or Patanjali Sutras.

In 2019 you’ll be able to register for an assortment of weekend programs over the Spring and Summer where she’ll teach primarily about Bhakti Yoga and Jyotish. And a Kirtan College! We’ll spend our days chanting under the trees and sleeping under the stars (if you choose to camp on the property). There are nearby AirBnB’s as well, and only a 30-40 minute drive from Chapel Hill.

She’ll also be teaching privately out of her tiny home on wheels in Alamance County. You’ll be able to visit in person or set up sessions online where she’ll be offering Vedic Astrology Consultations and will happily mentor yoga teachers and students in their private studies of Indian Music or the Indian Knowledge Systems.

And the India Pilgrimage is intended to continue on every year!

In the meantime, please do come see us before the end of the year. Many of the teachers at HoYS will be happy to connect with you for private sessions and/or inform you about where they might be teaching in 2019.

All Night Kirtan Closing Celebration


HoYS Closing Circle

A Beautiful article written by a recent YTT Graduate.




At HoYS we focus on teaching traditional Yoga. We do our best to offer ancient, time-tested teachings from India that are illuminated in a variety of Sanskrit texts. The teachers at Heart of Yoga are all daily yoga practitioners, and true facilitators of peace; not simply exercise instructors. The primary focus of our teaching is:

Hatha Yoga – Body and breath yoga with an emphasis on balancing and purifying the subtle energy body. The primary text we use is Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Bhakti Yoga – The yoga of love and devotion. We primarily share this practice by way of kirtan on Friday nights, Harmonium classes, and teaching from the Bhakti texts like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavata Purana, and Narada’s Bhakti Sutras.

Karma Yoga – The yoga of selfless service. Heart of Yoga School is a karma yoga center maintained by our teachers and students. Karma Yoga is actually the very Heart of HoYS.

Raja Yoga – The yoga of meditation and understanding the inner workings of the mind as prescribed by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras.

Jnana Yoga – The yoga of wisdom as prescribed in the Vedas and the Upanishads. This is also known as Vedanta.

Nada Yoga – The yoga of sound and vibration. Classical Indian Music is profoundly healing on an emotional and physical level; many teachers play this music in their classes.
