Alana began exploring meditation, yoga, and philosophy 14 years ago, and is still exploring today. For Alana, movement is a conduit for embracing creative possibilities, confronting limiting beliefs, and experiencing wonder. Her classes are a journey through alignment focused movement, philosophy, and story telling. She also loves a challenge, so prepare to sweat!
She’s sat at the feet of many teachers to learn and grow, and is thankful to every single one of them. The asana style she teaches is drawn predominately from trainings with Power Living Australia, Evolve Yin Yoga, and continued practice with Cassie Lee. She’s also inspired by studies in tantric philosophy and meditation (including with Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maureen), somatic stress release with Dr Scott Lyons, and (slightly left of field) the physical theatre, butoh, and free movement. A perpetual student, Alana is currently completing a PhD in socio-cultural anthropology, where she’s examining embodied narrative and environmental perception.
Her favourite part of every class is the moment where a student lets go a little bit, opens a little bit, finds their softness, their wild, their wonder, their breath.
