The Freedom of Relaxation

Hi and welcome to Ali Asana Yoga…

Congratulations! You’ve taken the first step with me on your wonderful Yoga journey. Whether you are a seasoned yogi and want to build strength and skill, or a complete beginner looking to enhance your life, I can promise you I will work towards your goals and life style choices.

I am a fun loving, free spirited, happy yogi, committed to sharing my passions with you and I have many. I truly believe Yoga is for everyone inclusive of age, gender, religion, ethnic background and shape, but more importantly ability.

I will coach, help and encourage you to be the best version of you by sharing my life experience, passions, knowledge, friendship and sense of humour. In all my classes you will find me compassionate, honest and supportive, if not a little challenging, in a good way! 

I encourage you to come and practise with me, I will be your biggest fan and cheer leader. The hardest step is coming through the front door, but I assure you once you arrive you will be welcomed with an open heart, a friendly face and a new exciting opportunity. You have nothing to loose but everything to gain.   READ MORE...

In my previous life I taught beauty and holistic therapy for over 20 years. I was Head of Faculty for service industries in a college before moving to Devon two years ago to run our bed and breakfast and pursue my yoga further. I am committed to healthy eating, cooking and living a happy balanced lifestyle and yes, that does include alcohol and some meat if you are wondering! I also offer massage therapies that will support and complement your journey. Please see my therapies web page for specific treatments and issues I can help you manage.

I love to walk my dog in all weathers (It’s Devon!), eat out, cook, learn new things, travel, read, talk (sorry), explore and generally live life to the full. I believe that happiness is not a natural human state, but should and can be achieved with the right commitment and a little help along the way.

If you are on your happiness journey like me, or need some encouragement to stay on the right track, I’m your girl.  COME ON YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY, BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT. I can’t promise it will be easy, but I can promise that I’d love to share your journey and encourage you along the way.

See you on the mat very soon,

Why should I do Yoga?

There are so many benefits of doing yoga. Yoga helps you improve and maintain the health of muscles, joints and organs. It keeps your mind healthy and will give you  a better night’s sleep. Yoga will improve performance and prevent injuries in sports as well as speed recovery from training. It will help prevent conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and auto-immune disorders and slow down the the negative effects of stress on the body, mind and spirit. Best of all it will increase your sense of happiness and well being.
