Allison Simpson

1) Name: Allison Simpson


2) Lives in: Vrilissia, Athens


3) From: Staten Island, New York, USA


4) Occupation: I’m a single mom, which feels like its own full-time job but when I am not managing my four and seven-year old, I’m creating an online social platform centered on personal growth and development called In Pursuit Of Self.


5) First three jobs (ever!): I grew up working in my family’s business – an international moving and storage company named Victory Worldwide Transportation.  I started at seven years old in the office with my dad answering the phones so he could give the receptionist the weekends off! As a teenager, I worked in the press office for the New York State Economic Development Corporation. And during my last two years of college I worked as a production assistant at Court TV – a national news network that televised criminal trials in the US.


6) Zodiac sign: Libra


7) Enneagram Type: 9 – Peacemaker


8) What you love about Athens or Greece in general: The sea!  And also the sense of freedom I feel here to be myself.


9) Something most people don’t know about you: People in Greece are often surprised to learn that I am a lawyer and I gave up a promising career in criminal defense in NYC when I decided to move here!


10) Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga?: I try never to miss a full moon yoga class – I LOVE Lynn’s rooftop – that view!!!!!! Πεθάνω!


11) First time you tried Kundalini Yoga? I was introduced to Kundalini Yoga in my 200-hour yoga teacher training at Laughing Lotus NYC in 2007. Nancy Elkes was the teacher, or “Kundalini Nancy” as we called her.


12) Anything else you’d like us to know? I just finished my certification in Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) which makes me the first and only EEM practitioner in Greece! EEM is something like acupuncture – as its very much based in Chinese medicine – except we use acupressure (touch) instead of needles and track energetic imbalances using kinesiology or muscle testing.
I love this modality because it empowers the client to manage their own energy systems and become their own healer! I’m designing workshops on energetic self-care and stress management here in Athens. You can follow me  at @inpursuitofself on Facebook and Instagram to get updates on my offerings! Or if you are interested in a private session email me at I would love to tell you more.  🙂
