Alina & Yogi Bear

Alina & Yogi Bear

Qualified Yoga Instructor, NLP Practitioner & The Founder of Yogalina

Meet Alina. Ever since she was young, she had felt a strong pull towards spirituality. It was this curiosity that led her to try yoga back in 2012, initially drawn to that after-yoga feeling as it helped with her demanding career in Banking & Finance. As she continued to practise, she realised that yoga held a personal significance for her, and she decided to deepen her knowledge and practise by enrolling to The British Wheel of Yoga's Foundation and then Teacher Training Courses. Little did she know that a decade later, she would be running her own yoga studio in Oxfordshire.

Alina's speciality are invigorating dynamic sequencing such as Fast Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Broga where she creates intelligent sequences to keep you on your toes whilst having an uplifting music in the background. Grounding Hatha and Candlelight Deep Stretch are amongst other favourites of Alina.

Alina is dedicated to continuing her education where she spent a month in India in 2023 attaining a blended yoga qualification with a focus on mental & physical balance and adjustments. Additionally, Alina is passionate about NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), where she helps people to turn their unhealthy habits into healthy, sustainable ones through her 21 Day Transformation Program.

When Alina isn't doing yoga (which is rare!), she enjoys spending time with her beloved doggie Yogi Bear, paddle boarding and exploring this beautiful world.

Pregnancy and Mum & Baby Yoga Instructor

Meet Alana, a certified YogaBirth 300H teacher, where she provides pregnancy yoga classes and mum & baby yoga sessions in a safe and supportive environment.

Alana's interest in yoga began during her midwife training six years ago, and she found it to be an effective way to stay present during a busy period in her life.

Prenatal yoga is a safe practice that can provide numerous benefits for both pregnant individuals and their babies, including improved sleep and reduced stress and anxiety.

The physical aspect of prenatal yoga, the asanas, can be done as frequently as necessary, with some opting for 3-4 times a week. For beginners, starting with 1-2 sessions a week is advisable to determine how they feel. On the other hand, breathing exercises and meditation can be done daily for maximum benefit.

Recently Alana gained an additional post-natal qualification and is now offering two Mum & Baby yoga sessions on Mondays.

Crystal Sound Baths Sessions

Throughout my years of study, I have delved into various forms of meditation, such as transcendental, Raja Yoga, Zen, mantra, and guided practices. In all my experiences, I have found meditation to be a deeply relaxing way to attain inner peace and clarity.

However, it wasn't until five years ago that I stumbled upon a new form of therapy that left me completely enamoured: the gong sound bath. The vibrations and profound sense of serenity I felt from the experience were transformative, leading me down the path of crystal bowl sound baths and eventually becoming a certified sound practitioner.

I am continually captivated by the power and healing properties of crystals and actively study crystal healing and Reiki. Sound therapy is a natural form of alternative healing that taps into the body's natural conductivity for sound vibrations. With crystal bowls, this effect is heightened, merging the powers of sound and crystal energies for an unforgettable sensory and spiritual experience.

Yoga Instructor

Caroline's yoga journey started more than two decades ago with a simple office lunchtime class that changed her life. It gave her a newfound sense of peace, clarity, and lightness that she had never felt before. From that moment, she was hooked and embarked on her yoga teacher training in Bali in 2002. Unfortunately, due to civil unrest, the course was cancelled, and she instead travelled around Asia, teaching English to children in Thailand.

Returning to the UK, Caroline trained to become a primary school teacher but was always called back to yoga teaching. She completed her training as a Children's Yoga teacher with Calm for Kids in 2017 and has been teaching in schools, nurseries, and preschools ever since.

Caroline truly believes in the transformative power of yoga and its ability to support emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing. She is continually studying and growing in her practice, completing the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course in 2017 and more recently, a 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training with Yogahaven. While she has experience in dynamic styles of yoga like Sivananda, Vinyasa, and Ashtanga, Caroline's true passion lies in sharing a mindful, gentle, flow style that allows us to connect with our bodies, breath, and true essence of self.
