About

Hi, I’m Alison, owner of the persona Yoga Knitdra.

This is a place devoted to Creative Relaxation, mostly in the forms of Restorative Yoga and handcrafts. Knitting and sewing feature alongside yoga practice.

A little about me, well practising yoga keeps me grounded. Teaching yoga brings me joy. I have been a student of yoga since 2000 and a teacher since 2007. Yoga is very much part of my life. I am fortunate to have studied with some of the world’s finest teachers, including Judith Hanson-Lasater, Donna Farhi, Janice Eliovson, Mark O’Brien, Joan Miller, Simon Borg-Olivier, Janice Clarfield, Shiva Rea, David Life & Sharron Gannon.

In March 2011 I attended the International Yoga Festival on the banks of the Ganges River at Rishikesh, India. This experience galvanised a host of yogic concepts for me, introduced me to teachers from around the globe and gave me important perspective on the fine quality of teaching we have in Australia which I hope to be a part of for many years to come.

I have taught corporate classes, prenatal, restorative yoga, mums & bubs as well as all manner of general, gentle and Hatha yoga classes. I tailor each class to the participants needs and abilities with a common focus of connecting the body and mind with the breath. I currently teach private clients and small groups in Sydney.

From time to time I run workshops and retreats that incorporate different forms of creative relaxation, such as yoga and knitting.  I also teach at yoga retreats, knitting camps and for corporate clients wanting to offer yoga as part of their wellbeing programmes.  I have a personal interest in assisting creative makers stay mobile to do what they love.

I practise yoga whenever and wherever I can. From beginning the day with quiet meditation to focusing on my breathing waiting for a train.

As B.K.S.Iyengar said “If you can breath, you can do yoga”.

Come and join me on the mat or in the creative studio some time!

Namaste
Alison
