Ali is a qualified Minded Yoga Therapist and Yoga Teacher. Ali initially trained as a yoga teacher with
The British Wheel of Yoga 15 years ago, and has since immersed herself in many forms of yoga
practices and training with a variety of teachers and lineages, including training in Yoga Therapy for
Healthy Lower Backs with the Yoga Biomedical Trust and Well Woman Yoga Therapy with Uma-
Dinsmore-Tuli. Training with The Minded Institute as a Yoga Therapist has brought Ali’s many years
of practice and experience together into a cohesive form, in which she can apply all that she has
learned, to help others move towards healing through the gentle guidance of Yoga Therapy. The
Minded Institute, with whom Ali trained as a Yoga Therapist, are leaders in the field of Yoga Therapy,
combining trauma informed yoga, mindfulness, neuroscience and psychotherapeutic principles. Ali
teaches general classes, well woman yoga classes, courses and workshops in and around
Northampton, and also offers one to one Yoga Therapy.
Well Woman Yoga
My monthly two hour Well Woman Yoga sessions are a space held for women to come together and
slow down the busy pace of life. We draw on practices to honour our bodies as cyclical beings which
move in unison with the cycles of our bodies, the moon, and the turning of the seasons. These
practices are very gentle, but incredibly powerful, with the ultimate aim of bringing well needed
nurturing and deep rest to our body-minds. Each session involves some gentle mindful movement
and breath work, restorative yoga (where we use lots of props to support our bodies in easeful yoga
postures), ending with a long yoga guided nidra (deep relaxation).
Sessions are held monthly, every first Thursday of the month. For more info see my Om Yoga Page.
