Alison Crinion

Alison teaches Yoga on Fridays at 1pm. She has does a Yin Yoga Workshop once a month on Fridays.

From an early age I have loved all forms of creative expression, from classical ballet and contemporary dance to fine art studies. Then, I discovered yoga in my 30’s and flirted with a number of styles (Hatha, Astanga and Iyengar) before discovering Vinyasa Yoga, where the ability to sequence flows and classes really suited me down to my toes. I completed my Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Green Lotus Yoga. I’m committed to support first-time Yogis kick off their journey through cultivating, clarity, fascination and confidence – ready to go deeper into the practice over time.
