I’ve spent much of the last 20 years figuring out how best to communicate with all different kinds of clients, how to really see bodies and how they move.
Alison has an approach to movement and health that includes exercise-specific movement, natural everyday movement, somatic body and brain exploration and a deep conviction that how our brains and bodies get together makes all the difference to how we feel.
Combining functional, exploratory details and alignment with fluid, intuitive movement and an emphasis on acceptance and fun leads to sustainable change that helps you feel better for life!
“Experienced, nuanced and generous with her knowledge for all things movement. Alison is truly a gifted teacher and communicator and allows you to look at the complex human body in a totally different light. I’m grateful for any opportunity I get to learn from her!”
Yoga & Pilates Teacher
“You are a great translator and communicator Alison, so warm and relate-able but also clearly very very knowledgeable too. A rare mix.”
Pilates and Restorative Movement Teacher
“Alison is a wonderful teacher and teaching mentor. Her deep knowledge of movement and bodies is only matched by her empathy, warmth and enthusiasm. Alison has helped shape my teaching in many ways, ranging from helping me understand technical issues to supporting my confidence when I was struggling. She’s creative, resourceful, thorough and always focused on exploring for ways to help me help my own body and my students, and she’s the person I call to this day when there’s something I can’t figure out.”
