  Allison Workman-  Allison loves life under the sun as it feeds her soul and moves her spirit. She's a certified personal trainer, yoga instructor, avid mountain biker, continual student of movement, all around fitness adventurer and lover of her pups:) 2 years ago she traded her home and brick and mortar fitness studio for a life of travel on the road with her husband in their airstream. While on the road, they began morphing various fitness philosophies in order to enjoy and optimize the outdoor training grounds they encountered throughout our journey. They found their daily workouts consisting of everything from kettlebells on the beach to mountain biking the backcountry in Colorado. These sweat sessions became staples at roadside stops across the US and their presence in RV parks rarely went unnoticed as yoga mats, kettlebells and power blocks commonly found their way to any open picnic table or grassy area that could accommodate a workout. A now Salida local teacher, Allison draws on this momentum and transforms it through her teaching into a perpetual motivation to empower herself and others to Move Happy.

Art Installments


  Outside In  is an immersive and interactive audio sound art installation that takes participants on journeys with music, audio recordings and generative performance in a completely outdoor setting. Visitors dance, lounge, and interact with the sound system with music and sound elements panning and moving around in three dimensional space (It’s not just sound coming out of a lot of speakers). It is a platform for creative audio expression that merges audience and artists in the same physical and performance space.   Performances can come in many forms like abstract sound art, algorithmic/generative compositions, interactive audience/DJ sets, and experimental playtime. The audience/visitor interactive component fun comes from using controllers and sensors to accurately position sound elements in three dimensions.   For DJs and musicians,  Outside In  adds a completely new dimension (literally) to their performance by being able to pan and automate individual musical components around them in full surround as wall as up and down with height. Any multi-track would audio work so it holds massive appeal for any DJ/musician.
