About Alison

Alison Eastland

Level 3 (Senior) Yoga Australia Registered Teacher

My way of teaching and practising is gentle and easy-paced. After all, many of us have already had lots of practice at pushing ourselves and rushing around, and we don't need any more of that. My practice over the years has been an oasis for me, a calm centre in the midst of change and challenge. I spent my younger years in stress, chronic illness and pain, so every day I appreciate the mental and physical ease that my practice has given me. I'm so grateful I can share this practice, thanks to the lineage of teachers who have inspired me with their wisdom and knowledge. The moving meditations I offer are within a normal range of movement. The power of the practice comes from mindfulness of the breath and in cultivating kind, non-judgemental attention. I've been a Yoga & meditation teacher as well as a food grower for more than 16 years, and a nature lover my whole life. I'm deeply interested in how both our practice of yoga and our belonging with nature can support, comfort, nourish and inspire us in these challenging times. I'm inspired and nourished by the nature and landscape of the melurkedee land of the palawa people that I live and work on (in the Huon Valley) and I respectfully acknowledge the palawa/pakana people as the Traditional Custodians of lutruwita (Tasmania). I pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.
