Brand Ambassador: Alison Hyde

Alison Hyde is a 200-hour E-RYT with Yoga Alliance, a Ki-Hara Master Trainer and practitioner, and personal trainer.  She began her career as a fitness professional in 2004, after realizing that her stressful job as a corporate designer was leading to anxiety disorders and an unhealthy lifestyle.

After a few years teaching a very full schedule of fitness classes, a chronically inflamed knee injury led her to explore many forms of alternative therapy.  In 2012 she discovered Ki-Hara Resistance stretching. This method of deep fascial stretching is very effective in reducing common bodily aches and pains.

Now, Alison offers private resistance stretching sessions and classes at PuraVegan.  Her classes utilize Ki-Hara Resistance techniques. These classes often fuse resistance stretching and yoga, and bring a renewed perspective for handling and protecting preexisting injuries.

Alison also designs and creates eco-friendly, organic clothing for Annamaya, her own clothing company. She began this company in 2004, after leaving her high-stress job as a corporate designer.

Alison has a B.S. in Mass Communications, and a M.S. in Family and Consumer Sciences.  In her free time, she enjoys cooking healthy meals with her husband and playing with her African Grey parrot, Max.

Alison is happy to be a Karuna brand ambassador because the Karuna product line features all natural, simple ingredients for a healthy, active lifestyle.

I am very excited that finally, Karuna offers all natural plant based drinks with much less sugar and higher nutritional content than most other bottled drinks on the market.  Now I can actually consume a delicious, healthy bottled drink without worrying about excess empty calories and sugar.
