​Allegra McBane-Sanchez is a certified yoga teacher (200 RYT) with Yoga Alliance. She received her training through Gina Norman at Kaia Yoga in Westport, Connecticut. Allegra is also a 2nd Degree Certified Reiki Practitioner, which she incorporates in her yoga teaching.  

Allegra has been practicing yoga for nearly 20 years, taking her first class in Los Angeles as a freshman in college. For many years, yoga was a supplement to her marathon running, but, as the mental and physical benefits of yoga became clear, Allegra shifted her focus from the taxing effort of marathon training to focus more on the therapeutic effects of her yoga practice.

As a mother, she has found yoga to be an integral part of her mental and physical health and works to share those benefits with others. She seeks to bring strength of body with calmness of mind to her individual yoga practice and to her teaching.

She specializes in one-on-one instruction and integrates breathe work and aromatherapy with alignment-based yoga. She has studied aromatherapy at the NY Institute of Aromatherapy and incorporates the use of therapeutic essential oils in her yoga practice and teaching. 

Allegra teaches a wide variety of classes including Yoga Basics, Hot Vinyasa, Prenatal, Mommy & Me and Gentle yoga at Kaia Yoga, Stamford Yoga Center, Prana Prenatal Yoga and SoulTribe Yoga in the Southern CT/Westchester areas. She also teaches private and semi-private classes catered to specific students' needs.

She is currently working on her 500 hour certification, also through Kaia Yoga.
