Alane met yoga in 2006 when she was seeking a hobby. Little did she expect what she found would transform her life! Fueled by the desire to study yoga more intensively, Alane enrolled in Wake Up Yoga’s Foundational Comprehensive Teacher Training program in fall 2008 under the skillful and compassionate direction of Corina Benner and Jill Manning. Shortly after completing her teacher training, Alane had the good fortune to begin teaching at Wake Up Yoga. Teaching yoga both challenges and feeds Alane’s love of her yoga practice, and she feels honored to hold the space for students to experience their own transformations.
In fall 2011 Alane completed Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Karen Safire. The principles Karen introduced in this training continue to inform Alane’s teaching. In 2014 Alane participated in the Functional Anatomy and Yoga Therapeutics Training with Marlysa Sullivan and Pranakriya Level 1 Prenatal Teacher Training with Jacci Gruninger. Both programs provided extensive tools to utilize yoga asana and breath practices to balance what is often an excessive level of activity in daily life. Alane’s classes are designed to smooth out tension, strengthen the body for its daily tasks, and rediscover steadiness. Beginners and more practiced yogis are equally welcome.
When she’s not teaching, practicing, or administrating yoga, Alane enjoys taking long walks, reading mystery novels, trying new recipes and eating dark chocolate. She lives in Drexel Hill with her husband, Jeremy, and sweet baby girl, Louisa.
