Like/dislike: Allison Korycki, Charm City Yoga

At an open-air studio in Rishikesh, India, Allison Korycki fell in love with yoga, participating in her first class as monkeys hung on the doors of the classroom. Now, the 25-year-old Korycki, who lives in Charles Village, is the director of operations at Charm City Yoga, where she teaches three classes a week. She took a breather to tell us her feelings about Meat Loaf and her favorite yoga pose.
