Despite what many Western yoga classes promote, yoga was never intended to be about getting your body into a particular shape, flowing quickly from one pose to another, or an obsession with handstands! Postures are just one of the eight limbs of yoga.
‘Yoga is an opportunity to be kind to yourself and connect to your authentic truth–no matter what your shape, size, or level of flexibility.’ Alisoun Mackenzie
Designed for women over forty seeking a slow, mindful, and gentle approach to yoga
Join this interactive course to learn how to practice yoga safely in ways that suit your body.
You'll discover the best version of each posture for you and experience other aspects of yoga including breath-work, meditation, relaxation, ethics, and a couple of different styles of yoga.
All with the support of a qualified teacher and community of women on a similar journey.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
30+ Short training videos you can do in your own time. These cover how to do common yoga postures (including contraindications, variations, and use of props), breathwork, mediation, and yoga philosophy. You can download these for lifetime access.
Weekly 1-hour class (via Zoom) during which I'll lead you on a slow mindful yoga practice. You'll be able to ask questions, get feedback, and connect with other women doing the course. You will experience both Hatha and Subtle yoga. These calls will be recorded.
You'll have access to a Facebook group set up specifically for women going through this course. The perfect place to ask questions, get feedback on your practice during the week, and share your experiences.
If you'd like more personal support and feedback, you can sign up for the one-to-one version of this course. The one-to-one package includes six 50-minute sessions with me and the flexibility to work through the course at whatever timeframe works for you.
You will get instant access to introductory modules. Subsequent modules will be released each week.
You don't need to watch these training videos before attending the weekly classes. However, you're likely to get more benefit from the classes if you do so. You can download these so you can watch them anytime.
The live weekly 1-hour yoga circles (classes) happen on Wednesdays at 5-6pm UK time, via Zoom.
If you're unable to make the live classes, you will receive recordings and you'll be able to ask questions or for feedback on your practice in our Facebook Group.
You could watch free videos on YouTube but most of these won’t teach you how to modify postures in the best way for your body. This course will do this and give you the confidence to practice yoga at home and attend yoga classes without feeling lost.
Now is the time to invest in your health, happiness, and wellbeing.
You can join a small group of women all working through the course for £95. Payable in one or two installments.

Since my early twenties, I’ve loved how yoga helps me switch off, feel more relaxed, calm, and at peace. But my short, inflexible and rounded body has never been keen on some yoga postures. I became increasingly curious about yoga when I was exploring ways to overcome burnout, fatigue, and cope better menopause. That’s when I realised there are many styles of yoga and one to suit every one of us!
Over the last few years, yoga has helped me heal, recover, and take control of my health. The more I practice, the better and stronger I feel. As a woman in my fifties, I’m now healthier than I’ve been in years. Yoga has completely transformed my body, life, business, and how I think about aging.
That's why I've decided to teach slow mindful yoga. As an experienced coach, NLP, and EFT practitioner yoga helps my clients embody change, feel good, and make changes in their life.
Adding yoga to my daily self-care practice has really helped me overcome fatigue, increase my fitness, and re-align my life to what brings me joy.
Everyday yoga helps me tune into what my body needs and what’s important-personally and for my business. It’s as though yoga has connected me to a new source of energy and flow.
When we regularly show up for ourselves, all sorts of miracles can start to unfold.
Imagine what this could do for you...
