Alison's yoga Nidra class in Dublin was one of my first introductions to yoga and I have to say the best I've attended yet. Alyson has a great knowledge of physiology, is very professional and creates a gentle, calm, inviting atmosphere within which to practice. I feel she provided a strong foundation, using descriptive analogies which were easily visualized. I personally found her meditation to be deep and very beneficial. I would highly recommend her classes to anyone new or experienced.
Alison quickly put me at my ease for my holistic facial. Her fingers felt expert and gentle as she applied various lotions and oils, massaging away tension from my face and using aromatherapy which l felt brought me even deeper into feeling relaxed. I was a little nervous to begin as my skin tends to be very sensitive (I am a red head!)however my skin looked much brighter, vibrant and youthful afterwards.A number of my friends even asked me I had my makeup professionally applied later in the day! I would throughouly reccomend Alyson as a holistic practitioner.
I have been attending Alison's yoga nidra class for a couple of months and have loved it. The practise itself is a very effective hour of total unwinding and switching off but I feel a lot of this is due to Alison's approach to guiding the class. She has a wonderfully peaceful and welcoming energy, but her steady and comforting voice is what makes you feel like she is taking you by the hand and leading you to this calm, grounded place. There is also a lovely creativity about her guided meditations that really help you to follow and let go. I would highly recommend her yoga nidra class to everyone!
For the past 15 years I have practised yoga regularly and since 2011 have become certified in Satyananda Yoga, Womb yoga & Pregnancy yoga. I specialize in my beloved Yoga Nidra medtation - the great stress reliever of our times!
I am a certified Lomi Lomi Massage therapist and have been training in this modality since 2011. I have also trained in other holistic therapies; Reiki, Theta Healing, Facial massage, Holistic facials and Ear candling.
My passion is to work with you in achieving your own highest aspirations for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. To provide a space for restoration, connection and healing. A space, as the great Irish mystic John O' Donoghue used say, "to come home to yourself."

Lomi lomi massage is a Hawaiian/Polynesian form of massage therapy. The word itself means to 'knead or to pummell.' In essence, this deeply relaxing 'Queen of massage therapies' aims to bring our awareness into the body-mind-spirit more deeply, with the intention to create a healthy connection and flow of energy throughout. Each lomi lomi is a unique experience and each treatment is individually and intuitively tailored to your needs of the present moment.
