Sunset Year for the Carrboro version of Heart of Yoga School.

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

The School will continue on, but in a mobile form and no longer in Carrboro. Allison will lead a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Intensive in Hawaii in 2019, and there is talk of a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training that will be hosted at a local Yoga Studio and taught by a handful of HoYS teachers. Allison is eager to visit as a guest teacher inside local and distant Teacher Trainings to teach Bhakti, Harmonium, Jyotish, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, or Patanjali Sutras; please email ombluesky@gmail.com if interested in hosting her.

In 2019 you’ll be able to register for an assortment of weekend programs in NC over the Spring and Summer where she’ll teach primarily about Bhakti Yoga and Jyotish. And a Kirtan College!

She’ll also be teaching privately out of her tiny home on wheels. 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.

The India Pilgrimage is intended to continue on every year! In 2019 she hopes to lead a Northern Tour and a Southern Tour.

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.
