He is registered as an E-RYT 500 through Yoga Alliance, has a 300-hr certification through Dr. David Frawley’s American Institute of Vedic Studies, and studied his 500-Hour RYT with Yoga Master Sri Dharma Mittra. For the past 12 years, Allowah has taught Yoga full-time in Pennsylvania, Florida, Hawaii, and Costa Rica.
In 2006, Allowah began offering Yoga Teacher Trainings (YTT), in order to exponentially increase his ability to spread love throughout the world. In 2016, Allowah founded Truly Helpful, LLC, to offer music and books in addition to events that center around a common dream to “allow more love to be.” He has since published his first album, Heart ‘n’ Hands (a musical celebration of ACIM), and written two books about his spiritual yoga journey, “Who Am I?" (published 2016) and "I Am Love" (publish date 2019)
