Yoga and meditation Classes

I don’t teach the usual kind of yoga.

For me yoga is about how you live your life.
Practices in class are offered to help you regulate your nervous system as well as connect with who you are. Insights explored and gained in practice enable you to live your life with more balance, confidence and awareness.

Be free to work at your own pace and to immerse yourself in the practices that nourish you.

Yoga & Meditation Classes

I offer a classical style of yoga that encourages practitioners to explore their body, mind and emotions in a safe and supported environment. I also share the knowledge I have gained from contemporary research that shows that taking yoga slowly and mindfully supports nervous system functioning and positive changes in the workings of the brain – which enables us all to to live our lives with more steadiness and insight. 

All practices are suitable for everyone – irrespective of age, fitness, health status, flexibility, body size etc.

A mix of physical practices (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation are taught in each class. Experience the deeply, nourishing  practice of Yoga Nidra meditation.

Classes take place in a small yoga space under my house in Bermagui, Southern NSW or in dedicated yoga venues for large groups.

Alison’s classes have brought me peace and focus when all seemed lost (first the fires took my home and now the virus has stranded myself and my partner half a world away). In the midst of trauma and devastation, I asked for help to breathe. Alison’s skillful teaching and depth of understanding of the practice of Yoga Nidra, along with her warmth and humour, have delivered this and so much more.

Ali is warm, approachable and utterly professional at the same time. Her style is wonderful and every time I leave a class I feel on cloud 9.

Alison’s meditation and yoga classes were life changing for me. Her practices help to centre breathing and being. I’m forever grateful that I started my yoga journey with Alison

The gentle yoga stretches help my flexibility, muscle tone and strengthen and protect my back and neck from the strain experienced after working with young children for over 30 years. After each yoga class I feel energised and revitalised, ready for another day as a busy working mum. Alison/ Mantradharma is an amazing yoga teacher and I look forward to her yoga class each week as a special treat for myself... a time to relax, find balance and calmness and to feel nurtured.

Thank you for your great yoga classes. I love the tempo of them and I find I can extend myself without becoming exhausted or over-strained. Also your careful instructions are giving me a good grasp of each posture so i can also do them at home.
