500 HOUR CERTIFIED | studying Yoga Therapy

Alana is an effervescent, open-hearted person. She is from the beautiful land of New Zealand, and spent 2 years living in Hawaii before relocating to California.

Alana is a passionate yogi - not just in the form of asana practice but more so in the work done off the yoga mat. Like most people she believes 'yoga' found her, rather than the other way around. She is eternally grateful for the role yoga has played in her life. It is Alana's aim to teach and share to assist others finding the spark and light within themselves.

Alana trained with renowned, and incredibly talented yoga teacher Skeeter Tichnor. Since then she has extensively trained with Skeeter and has completed advanced training with Amy Ippoliti and Monique Lonner, amongst other amazing teachers. She initially trained in Anusara Yoga, which she blends into her teaching with many other forms of Yoga. Alana is currently studying to become a Certified Yoga Therapist, which is something she is incredibly passionate about.

Favorite Yoga Move: 

This changes day to really depends on what my mind & body need at the time. Every time I practice I start with connecting with the breath and wide leg balasana, then end with savasana so it must be one of those.

How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most: 

Yoga really has changed my life on many levels. It connected me to my spirit-self, which is the guiding essence of each and every one of us. It has opened my heart, offered me clarity and soothed my mind. It has allowed me react and respond differently to life, and whatever may unfold. My physical body is more open and aligned which is a direct reflection of what it has done for my mental and spiritual self.

Reason Started Doing Yoga: 

Like most of us it was a suggestion from a friend that got me to my first yoga class. She rarely went to class with me after that day, but I became hooked immediately.
