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 not in Carrboro. Allison will be offering teachings inside of 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 K. Sridhar says is the traditional Vedic way. Allison won’t be leading Yoga Teacher Trainings any time soon in NC, but you’ll be able to register for an assortment of weekend programs in 2019 where she’ll teach primarily about Bhakti Yoga; telling the stories in the Ramayana, Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhagavad Gita, Puranas of Devis, Vedic Mythology associated with Jyotish, and much more. She’ll also continue teaching Patanjali Yoga Sutras and Hatha Yoga Pradipika if there’s interest. 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. And the India Pilgrimage is intended to continue on every year. Fret not, the bhav continues…

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.
