Alison Rawlins

yoga instructor, reiki healer, consent educator and communication coach.

Learn more about Alison via her blog and video projects, and by watching Teaching Ithaca Wellness video series on the local PEGASYS cable Channel 13, or on YouTube!

Alison is an alumna of Tompkins Cortland Community College, Empire State College, and Ithaca College holding an MS in Strategic Communication, RYT 200 hour yoga instructor, reiki practitioner, therapeutic art coaching, and Cuddlist certifications. She is a skilled communicator who incorporates Reiki blessing in the healing touch of Cuddlist as well as holding a nurturing and inclusive space for Cuddle Party events and Paint Yoga classes.


Rawlins began her spiritual teacher’s journey in 2017 with the first initiation and practicum in Heart Path Reiki completed May, 2017. During a retreat later that year, she was inspired to collect wellness experts for her Teaching Ithaca Wellness video series. She has continued working with many of those teachers, and continues to attend and present workshops of all kinds. 


Rawlins discovered her passion for the listening, sharing space, and ways of being tender with one another which are the fundamental practice of professional cuddling during the spring of 2018 while enrolled in the Radiance Course at Yoga Farm where she also earned her RYT200 certification. Alison is passionate about the particular style of assertive and respectful affirmative consent practice modeled in the Cuddle Party program, and hopes to bring this benefit to attendees so they can be more successful in achieving both personal and career goals.

All sessions and screenings must be face-to-face to ensure we are both working with a real person.
