Allee's impact on her riders and on our team is undeniable. From her calming, mystical nature to her infectiously high energy on the bike, she seems to meet everyone's needs. Riders tell us all the time they need more Allee in their lives, and we feel the same way! Luckily, since she's yoga instructor, leader at lululemon, and founder of the about-to-launch Offerings Spirit Co., there are plenty of places to find Allee. We chatted with her about her life on and off the bike here. Happy Maniac Monday!

What's a day like in the life of you?

On the run, problem solving, creating, dreaming, recovering, listening, and holding space. I love my life for its fluidity and ability to transform day to day, moment to moment. Like the connection between mind and body, my life ebbs and flows between high direction and organization and beautiful chaos. Between moments of grinding and fueling my path inspired by the incredible people with whom I'm surrounded in my various workplaces, &  complete surrender, silence, and serenity (IE: lavender, old records, candles, and a good bottle of red).

What are your favorite workouts away from VERTICITY?

Yoga is my love language--on on off the mat, it doesn't matter. It's how I practice being alive.

A real challenge to my body and mind is hot yoga, particularly at Hot Yoga East Nashville or CorePower Yoga in Brentwood.

Who is your dream rider?

My dream rider doesn't exist in my mind, in anyone's really. I am my own dream rider, trying my best to sweat, head-band, sing, scream, dance, and heal all during the journey of a class. Are you your own dream rider?

Guilty pleasures?

That'd be NETFLIX and binge-watching the best television shows of all time: The Office, New Girl, and Parks & Rec... in that order.

Things you can't live without?

I'm practicing non-attachment, or aparigraha. But if I'm being super real, my growing crystal collection is pretty hard to live without--they're just so damn vibey and beautiful.

What music is getting you super pumped up right now?

I've turned in to a rave baby on the bike as of late--anything Bassjackers, Yellow Claw, or over 140bpm (you're welcome, sprinters). 

Off the bike, Norah Jones is fueling my turn of the season spirit once again. Croon-on, mama.


Maki may have started out as a rider, but we knew from the start that he belonged on the podium. Whether he's motivating you with his contagious positive energy, entertaining you with his dance moves, or bringing the party (likely with some Bieber), his challenging classes are always a blast. And he's just as much fun to be around off the bike, too. To get to know Maki AKA team Dad, read on.

What's a day like in the life of you?

There is always a lot of food, exercise and time with friends - ideally all activities take place while listening to good music. It's easy to feel pulled in a lot of directions so I try to focus on whatever I am doing, whether it is riding at Verticity, thinking through something at work or cooking/dancing in my kitchen. I am guilty of getting distracted and letting my mind wander - moving my body, eating awesome food and listening to music help me remember that I often take myself too seriously. Every day is an attempt to be mindful and be present; the best days are the ones spent with the people I love.

What are your favorite workouts away from Verticity?

  • Yoga
  • Running
  • Hiking mountains

Who is your dream rider?

Every rider who commits to turning it up and leaving it all on the bike. 

What are your best eats at each meal? 

Breakfast: EiO & The Hive
After Breakfast: Lynne Lorraine's
Before Lunch: Bakery by Frothy Monkey on Fatherland
Lunch: Butcher & Bee
After Lunch: Cafe Roze
Dinner: Henrietta Red
After Dinner: Rosemary & Beauty Queen

Guilty pleasures?

Spending long periods of time in the mountains.

Things you can't live without?

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Nature

What music is getting you super pumped right now? 

Anything that makes me want to dance.
