Trauma Sensitive Yoga & Pilates

Starting a movement practice has been life-changing for me. Yoga has been about so much more than moving my body and has really changed the way I move, think and how I live my life.

It all starts with presence. It’s a practice. It’s been five years since I first started my yoga journey and it’s still something I practice now.

Since completing my training as a Trauma Sensitive Yoga and Pilates Teacher I have worked with individuals online and in person to provide sessions that help people start their practice, focus on the present and find some calm.

Yoga and pilates offers a perfect space to move, breathe and recalibrate, whilst building strength and flexibility in a functional, useful way for your life.

All the sessions are lead by Alison, and are crafted for you in order to be useful, supportive and beneficial whatever your age, ability or circumstances.

Sessions can be delivered ONLINE VIA ZOOM, or at THE CENTRE, in POYNTON.

I can’t wait to work with you.

Trauma Sensitive One-to-One Yoga & Pilates

Since 2020 I have worked with people on a 121 basis delivering tailor made yoga and pilates sessions. I have worked with individuals struggling with IBS, back complaints, depression and anxiety, both online and in person to provide soothing, practically useful sessions graded to their current circumstances.

Complete beginners are incredibly welcome to book in for a session – this lovely lady was a first time yogi and was surprised by how much she was able to accomplish in her first try at yoga! Our bodies and capacities are incredible if we breathe and do what feels good!

Having had years of various back, neck and shoulder complaints this session focused on careful, functional movement to build strength and ease tension to provide relief. I’m so pleased our work together was helpful for this lovely lady ๐Ÿ™‚

Another lovely review from a 121 student here – this session was done online during the pandemic. Whatever you are feeling or experiencing in our sessions is ok, we are all just humans after all. I am pleased that those I work with feel comfortable to be honest about how they feel.

Group Yoga and Pilates Sessions

I have also worked with students, mainly online during the Covid-19 pandemic to provide group sessions to help those who joined rest and relax. I am so pleased that those who joined found it beneficial and the feedback below goes to show that if you are ready and willing, a lot can be achieved once you step on your mat.

“Had a wonderful Rest and Release group practice today with Alison as our excellent guide. With emphasis on controlled breathing and constant movement the experience was totally relaxing and calming. This practice with Alison was both emotionally and physically beneficial and I would definitely recommend it.”

โ€” Sharon, long term yogi – online group session

“I have absolutely no exprience with yoga but after a friend recommended it I thought I’d give it a go. Ali was a fantastic instructor and made it so easy for a novice like me to follow the movements. She also tailored the session to suit my abilities which left me feeling relaxed and flexible. Would definitely recommend to anyone who feels intimidated by the idea of doing yoga!”

โ€” Rich, complete beginner – messaged the day after to say he had the best night’s sleep after our session because he was so relaxed ๐Ÿ™‚

“Just wanted to say I really enjoyed this morning. The core work and the relaxation were ace! It was my first live Yoga class, I’ve done Adrienne recorded ones but never a live class. Really helped loosen me up after a long walk yesterday but the tummy love bit really resonated. You’re a brilliant yoga teacher/guide.”
