She has been teaching yoga since 2010 and has studied to be a yoga teacher in London and India.

Alison’s Hatha yoga classes include breathing and mindfulness techniques, relaxation and a mixture of traditional poses and short flow sequences in order to achieve the combined benefits and enjoyment of the most popular styles of yoga.

Alison believes that yoga should be enjoyable and available to everyone. It does not matter how flexible you are or whether you can touch your toes. Every pose can be adapted.

Alison provides easy and practical techniques to help you de-stress, relax and enjoy being pregnant and focus on your own health and fitness and your baby.

Alison is able to incorporate all her midwifery and yoga knowledge in order to help you learn positions, breathing and relaxation techniques that can be used during your pregnancy, labour and birth and after your baby is born.

Thea Mallard

SONY DSCThea fell in love with yoga during her very first lesson in 2011 and continues to practice yoga on and off her mat on a daily basis ever since. Initially drawn to yoga’s physical benefits, she soon realized that yoga had much more to offer and started to study yoga philosophy and to practice meditation.

In 2013 she completed the 500hr yoga teacher training “The Rising Moon” at Yoga&More in Berlin. Her practice and her teaching are inspired by many different teachers and styles (Vinyasa, Hatha, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga, Iyengar and Ashtanga).

Thea believes that yoga is for everybody and every day. But every day and every body is different. Therefore she invites her students to explore their own body and mind over and over again, from a new perspective, with fresh eyes. In her classes she shares her own passion for yoga and meditation, and focuses on alignment and breathing as well as joy and enjoyment.
