Allie has been practicing yoga and meditation for 40 years. After a diverse business career leading innovative start-ups in New York City, she began to commit her life and work to energy healing practices. As a wilderness trainer, she traveled the world teaching individuals and teams undergoing change to learn and practice deeply integrative and harmonizing ways of living while pursuing their heart’s desire. Knowing that clinical expertise would help her serve others in their personal transformation, she pursued graduate clinical education, taught at the graduate level and became a licensed clinical social worker and master coach and trainer in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. In addition to being a mental health first responder to the 9/11 disaster, she served as the clinical director of a community mental health agency and brought yoga and expressive arts into 12 programs. She worked to develop yoga programming for staff and clients at the New York Office of Mental Health and in peer-run programs, using LifeForce Yoga combined with embodied presence practices from the Presencing Institute. Now, she teaches widely and supports emerging leaders in health care as well as business with mind-body integration coaching and mind-body program development. She blends LifeForce Yoga with other mind-body integration practices in public and private psychiatric rehabilitation settings and is an experienced leader, advocate and conference presenter on the integration of mindfulness and yoga into health care reform. Allie integrates LifeForce Yoga into her leadership development coaching in business settings and in her coaching practice and trainings globally.
