About

Why Well Aligned Woman? Because I believe the modern woman needs to know she is supported in her journey. As a woman, I feel my perspective is universally feminine and although we each have a unique story shaped by our age, background, culture, and lifestyle, there is something beautiful and special that bonds us together as women moving through life together. The aim of this blog is to find connection and freedom by aligning the elements of our experience and learning to balance them in order to thrive. That being said, there is no end goal. I do not have all the answers and in no way intend on telling anyone how to live their life, rather I hope these musings offer a space to get curious about your own experience so you can move forward with intention and love. Join me on my journey as I write on aligning a wide variety of topics centered on mind, body, and spirit, including conversations around yoga, fitness, mental health, behavior, nutrition, spiritual practices, parenting, and mindfulness.

The aim of this blog is to find connection and freedom by aligning the elements of our experience and learning to balance them in order to thrive.

Meet Aurora

 

Aurora Allen is a yoga instructor and health coach in Orange County, California. She received her Master’s degree in Psychology and moved forward to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. After 5 years working with children, she took a leap of faith to work alongside her chiropractor husband in opening their first office together, Allen Chiropractic (www.allenchiropracticmv.com). After seeing a vast difference in overall patient health, she wanted to make her mark on a physical level and decided to move forward in pursuit of her passion for yoga and become a registered yoga instructor. While pregnant with her first child, she experienced the power yoga had in assisting her with her desire for a natural birth. Using both pranayama and asana to prepare the mind and body, she was able to successfully give birth without medication to 3 beautiful children. With her first prenatal yoga experience being instrumental in assisting her through her pregnancy and delivery, she moved forward with prenatal yoga teacher training in order to help other women experience the benefits of prenatal yoga. Aurora currently teaches both prenatal and postpartum mothers how to incorporate yoga to support them in meeting their goals. Although she has had many wonderful teachers along her yoga journey, everything came together for Aurora when she moved through Annie Carpenter’s SmartFlow teacher training with Tiffany Russo. She is a 500-RYT and is working toward becoming a certified SmartFlow instructor. For more information on SmartFlow yoga please visit anniecarpenter.com.
