Having always found beauty, expression and meditation through dance and movement, Alanna first turned to yoga to manage stress, mental health and back pain while studying Art abroad at University of Edinburgh. Following her move home to Hong Kong after graduation, she was inspired to pursue yoga teaching to spread the transformative benefits she discovered through yoga.
Through the practice and study of various styles of yoga, as well as experiencing first-hand how incorporating mobility, strength, and conditioning training has improved all aspects of her yoga practice. She has come to appreciate the importance of balancing active, dynamic, strengthening movements, as well as more nourishing and restorative therapeutic techniques.
Alanna enjoys working with people from all walks of life, and believes in making yoga and mobility accessible to everyone. In addition to empowering people to realize their full physical potential, she is passionate about helping them to develop self-awareness, connection, and compassion while pushing themselves beyond their preconceived limits.
Alanna meets people where they are in their movement and recovery journey, and does not prescribe to a ‘one size fits all’ approach to health and healing. Her holistic approach combines yoga, pilates, mobility, meditation, mindfulness, and breathwork to help people move and feel better, in order to find greater ease, peace and freedom in their daily life.
