With over 18 years of teaching and 23 years of practice, Allison is a down-to-earth North Queensland local, with a dry sense of humour and a sense of adventure. Allison discovered the rigors of Ashtanga Yoga following a serious car accident at 18 which supported her long recovery throughout her 20s.
In 2005, Allison travelled to Scotland for a year and stayed for seven, eventually bringing home her future husband Harry, to settle back in beautiful Townsville to create Live and Breathe Yoga in 2010.
After a career in accounting and working in the television industry in Glasgow, Allison became an enthusiastic student, travelling four times to Mysore, India (the home of Ashtanga yoga) for extended periods of study and travelling to train with many teachers in the US, the UK and Australia.
With a Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy, Allison loves working one-to-one with people for therapeutic and rehabilitative yoga, to find balance, ease and peace. She specialises in helping her students feel confident in their bodies by using specific yogic practices that suit their individual needs. Live and Breathe Yoga now has an incredible team of teachers trained and mentored by Allison bringing high quality yoga classes, retreats, corporate yoga and teacher education to the region.Back to News
