Founder of Yoga Panacea
Of course there is no such thing as a true panacea. A panacea as a 'cure-all' is a mythical idea akin to searching for the holy grail.
Yoga Panacea was born out of a belief that yoga is the closest thing to a panacea. No matter whether you are seeking healing, fitness, or inner peace, or all of the above, you will discover that the right kind of yoga guided by the right teacher will help you achieve your goal and usually so much more.
Yoga Panacea services:

Meditation and mindfulness workshops
Pregnancy yoga classes
Positive Pregnancy Well-being sessions
Yoga holidays and retreats
Hatha yoga with Alison:
My hatha yoga classes include breathing and mindfulness techniques, relaxation and a mixture of traditional poses, sun salutations and short flow sequences in order to achieve the combined benefits and enjoyment of the most popular styles of yoga. And always a chance to smile and enjoy your practice.
I am an experienced yoga teacher and passionate about guiding high quality, holistic yoga that is suitable for everybody. I believe in friendly, relaxed, supportive teaching and will support you in finding your own practice, helping you to listen to your own body.
Since 2009, I have completed multiple yoga teacher training courses (including Advanced Yoga Teacher Training 500 hours) in traditional hatha, Sivananda and Vinyasa yoga in the UK and India.
As a former Registered Midwife and Nurse I have a wide clinical knowledge of health-related issues that can be helped by yoga.
As a midwife of 22 years I now specialise in pregnancy and postnatal yoga and hypnobirthing. I ran teacher training courses for several years teaching yoga teachers, midwives and other maternity professionals how to teach prenatal and postnatal yoga.
I believe in helping people find their own level of practice and their own version of each yoga pose so you can practice in a way that feels helpful, safe and nourishing for you. Everybody is different in terms of physical abilities and everybody is different in why they come to yoga and what they want from their practice. So, it only makes sense that we all practice in different ways. I help you to learn how to listen to your own body and practice without ego or expectation. I will help you to let go of any ideas and myths around needing to be flexible to practice yoga.
Come and join me on the mat and learn how much yoga can enhance your life.
