Alison Boyce, LMBT, Yoga Therapist, & Voice Teacher
I believe in the transformational power of breath, yoga, voice, and intentional touch. Coming from a background of childhood trauma, I am most interested in the effect massage, yoga, and singing can have on the nervous system. I am dedicated to empowering people to participate in their own healing.
I attended the Asheville School of Massage & Yoga and graduated in September 2017. I am a licensed NC Massage and Bodywork Therapist. My massage style is grounding and flowing in nature, aiming to soothe the nervous system, and also address engrained patterns of muscular tension, opening a space of deep relaxation.
I first discovered yoga as a musical theater performer, when I kept losing my voice and was told yoga would be a good tool to address that issue. Little did I know that yoga would become my lifelong practice, transforming my life in more ways than I could ever have imagined, helping me take steps on my healing journey.
I have been a dedicated yoga practitioner for 10 years, and I received my first 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Nelson, BC, Canada, in 2010, and my Advanced training 500hr YTT in Yoga Therapy from the Asheville Yoga Center in Asheville, NC in May 2017.
I ama trained vocalist and voice teacher in the Wilson Method, which encourages the art of free voice, joyful singing and unbridled expression, empowering and inspiring the individual to increased somatic awareness. I have been a performer for 15 years, and am passionate and curious about the healing that can occur through the voice-body connection, and heightened embodiment when singing. I host 'Yoga for Singing' workshops across North America, and am the founder of 'Singing and Yoga by the Sea' retreats. I am also enrolled in the Gettin' Higher Choir Facilitator Training in Victoria, BC, Canada for Fall 2018.
I am passionate about working collaboratively with clients using massage, yoga, and voice, discovering self-care tools most useful for them, and to help them become aware of the habits and patterns in their daily lives that contribute to their suffering, aiming for freedom. I can attest to the power of breath and self-reflection and bring this experience into my practice.
