Yoga good for EVERY body

Slow mindful yoga is as important as cardiovascular exercise

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

About your teacher

Alisoun Mackenzie

Your Yoga Teacher, Meaningful Life Guide, Author, Speaker & Retreat Leader

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. 

Ready to transform your health and life with yoga?

 What do you want to experience in 2021 and beyond?

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...

If any of what I've shared resonates with you, I'd love you to join us!
