Allison Hinton is a CYKT instructor. She is new to Gypsum, but not new to Colorado. She and her husband, Scott, raised their family in Leadville. Allison is a proud mom of a local police officer and four beautiful stepchildren. She has two grandsons in the valley and 10 grandchildren on the front range and in Northern Colorado. She is grateful for her large, beautiful, blended family.
Allison loves children. She believes wholeheartedly in the YogaKids program. Her classes are all themed to be fun and educational – utilizing books, music, art, games and playful props. Age appropriate breathing techniques and postures encourage well-being, social and emotional maturity and self-control. Each class is personalized around children’s curiosities as they learn yoga through social interaction, repetition, and play. The primary fitness skills that develop as a result of yoga are strength, flexibility and balance. Children also learn how to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span by actively following directions.
