Allison Modafferi
E-RYT 200
Ayurvedic Nutrition, Charlotte, NC​

When Allison Modafferi Brewster finished her first yoga class in 2001, she felt a full inch taller… and knew she’d discovered a path that would change her life!


In 2003, she pursued her first RYT-200 teaching certification, and soon thereafter began instructing a group of brave and curious friends in an art gallery. Since then, Allison has taught at several Charlotte studios, including The Bodhi Tree, Peaceful Poses, the YWCA, and Sangati. She currently teaches at Be Yoga, where she became the Studio Director in the spring of 2012.
Allison's yoga studies have continued, with in-depth explorations of Anusara & Therapeutic Yoga, Rajanaka philosophy, and Ayurveda.

She also draws inspiration from Vinyasa Yoga, Acro-Yoga, and Aerial Silks Dance, as well as from the humbling beauty of nature, the heart-stirring qualities of music, and the creative play of cooking.
Allison's classes focus on learning alignment to embody poses with stability and ease, while moving with the breath (and allowing the breath to move through us).


Her creative sequencing and enthusiastic approach bring yoga philosophy down-to-earth and make the challenge of practice fun! Through her company Heart of the Matter Yoga, Allison leads yoga & wellness retreats, workshops, immersions, trainings, and cleanses.
