Hi I'm Allyson.
I write about religion. 

My research explores the intersections of the modern yoga industry and Christian spiritual practices. My broader interests include pluralism, cultural appropriation, and lived religion.


I am the managing director of Christians Practicing Yoga, a non-profit organization founded on interfaith and interreligious practices that honors the intersections of yoga philosophy and Christian theology.


When not writing or reading, I enjoy practicing aerial circus arts and striving to be the cool aunt.
