She is passionate about helping people to find presence and insight into the interbeing of our bodies, minds and the earth.

She has also trained as a Reflexologists with the Association of Reflexologists, Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance Professionals, and specialises in Pregnancy and Childbirth qualifying as a Doula and in Eutokia. Before her training she worked in the computer industry and initially came across the Alexander Technique through back pain.
She has always had a love of movement and wanted to be a dancer as a child but suffered from digestive pain and was unable to pursue this dream. In her early twenties she suffered from back pain and in her journey to getting better came across the Alexander Technique. Since her mid twenties she has applied her Alexander Technique and Yoga knowledge to improving her quality of movement and running style. She now teaches people how to regain the joy of movement without the need of pain killers.
She also has a love for cycling, gardening, and cooking. Through her natural love of cooking she runs cookery demonstrations and developed a routine to help maintain her digestive health which she now teaches on her Re-balancing Your Diet Courses along with the concept of Life Style Nutrition.
With her family of two boys she has developed an interest with teaching the Alexander Technique to children both in and out of school. This type of work really inspires Alison to create fun ways of learning both for adults and children, helping people learn in an easy way, feeding their confidence and spirit.https://www.integratinghealth.com/slow-flow-yoga-at-penrith
Sunday 10th Dec 6.30pm - 9pm - Wild Woman Circle
With Chris Cartwright
Discover your inner WILDness or wholeness of being, where the focus is on re-connecting to self, community and nature so you feel more supported, authentic, rejuvenated and resilient.
Each circle is a time for ritual, meditating, intention setting, well being, creativity and connection.
We will deepen our connection to the element of water and our heart energy to consciously explore and connect with a deeply held desire, a soul longing and see where it takes us!
What are your deep desires?
What have you been waiting to do?
We will tap into the flow, the stream of life force energy, guidance, inspiration, light, wisdom that is always available for us. As we open to receive these blessings and allow something new to come forth we can take action to move us into greater alignment with our inner guidance.

Wednesday 20th Dec 6.30pm - 8pm - Womens Circle Solstice
With Emily Hoyle
Living a well nourished life is about knowing yourself deeply.
It is about growing into the person you were always meant to be…and receiving the support you need to get you there
Nourish Yoga is about movement which will give you great strength, physical freedom and deep connection.
It is about deep relaxation, meditation, a space to be totally yourself, and learning to celebrate you and your beautiful body.
Nourishing you is about discovering a deep understanding of your female self and the spiritual transitions you move through body, heart and spirit on this journey we call life: menarche, menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, the postpartum time, motherhood and peri- menopause.

Jane .A. Terrett
I have been a Hatha Yoga teacher for just under two years but have practiced Yoga myself for much longer. My background is Beauty and Holistic Therapy and I have worked in this industry for twenty years but Yoga has always been an important part of my life. I decided to train as a Yoga teacher (BSYQLS level 4 FOYHT) in order to give back to others, as I know the benefits of Yoga for health and well being are incredible, for all ages and different abilities.
I look forward to meeting more Yoginis and bringing them on the journey, and to have fun on the mats.

22nd June / 6th July / 13 July 2024
Hello! I'm Lucy (she/her), a qualified yoga teacher offering in-person, inclusive classes. I've been practicing yoga for 10 years and have completed the following qualifications:
- "Resilience-building, Inclusion & Accessibility in Yoga & Mindfulness" with New Leaf Foundation in Toronto (Canada) - 15hrs
- Yoga Teacher Training (Hatha & Flow) at Union Yoga + Wellness in Toronto (Canada) - 225hrs
My practice is grounded in acknowledging spaciousness in body and breath. This is a constant work in progress and I'm delighted to share it with you! I believe that yoga is for every body and I love including variety in my practices.
My "off the mat" yoga includes being a trained Mental Health First Aider and an active member of Anti-Racist Cumbria.
I enjoy swimming, running, hiking, beekeeping, vintage/second-hand gems and hanging out with my cat.
I love the space at Soulands Studio; the view, the ambiance of the wood, warmth and natural light. I am more than happy to host classes here or come to you.
Please feel free to get in touch via email at email@example.com if you'd like to discuss how I can support your yoga practice. I'm down for 1:1s, groups, one-offs, regular sessions or anything else you might be keen to do!
