In the Hindu religious tradition, ?nanda signifies eternal bliss, understood to be at very core of the human experience.

Ananda is a dedicated SmartFLOW certified teacher and teacher trainer, who is known to teach with humour, grace, and technical precision. As a former yoga studio owner, Ananda cultivated community and culture of teaching and practice with the SmartFLOW methodology. Through many years of love and hard work, she instilled an indelible sense of curiosity and awareness in her teachers and students. Her dedication to the process and practice of yoga continues to remind us that life is in state of constant change. She believes yoga is deep listening, an act of physical and mental attuning, which increases the possibility for personal change.

Through her creative sequencing, clear cues and personal encouragement, she guides students deep into their body with great awareness.Alison discovered ashtanga yoga in London, whilst seeking sanctuary from corporate life. Searching for meaning in life and relief from daily suffering, she found in yoga calmness of mind, confidence and a strong feeling of being centred. She moved to Sydney in 2000 and after having two beautiful babies (now teenagers) and found herself at Bikram Yoga Teacher Training, which gave her discipline and awakened her curiosity for a deeper exploration of her self. Soon after, she completed Power Vinyasa trainings with Baron Baptiste and Power Living Australia, learning the power and grace of moving with the breath. Her enquiry continued on immersions and trainings in Anusara, Haha, Iyengar, Smartflow and Forrest Yoga styles which brought more strength, skilfulness and mindfulness to her practice and teaching."The practice of yoga has become an integral part of my healing and transformation. As a teacher I see myself on this journey of self-discovery with my students."Alison has studied with many renowned yoga teachers, including the four who have the greatest influence on her teaching: Noah Maze, Annie Carpenter, Maty Ezraty and Ana Forrest.
