Allison Forbes

Yoga & Fitness Instructor

I was born and raised in Hotlanta, Georgia. I received my Exercise Physiology degree with a minor in Nutrition and Psychology from Valdosta State University. I made my move to Charleston as a strength and conditioning intern for The Citadel. I am a 500 RYT instructor and have been teaching yoga for almost 10 years. I am currently working on my Ayurvedic Practitioner certification. I'm a personal trainer at Exemplar Fitness. I incorporate yoga, Ayurveda, and exercise physiology in my personal training and classes. Mental health is just as important to me as physical health. I use to compete in triathlons where I’ve placed in my age group at every race. I’ve been diagnosed with countless health problems, some even misdiagnosed. Dealing with health issues that I cannot change, I’m learning to love my body and searching for new ways to push my physical endurance. I teach SUPyoga, beach yoga, and at a variety of studios when I’m in Charleston, SC. In 2017, I started traveling the world so I can lead mindful, fitness retreats within and outside the US and in 2019, my dream will be coming true as I lead retreats in Charleston, Cuba, Costa Rica, Columbia, Greece, and Bali.
