“Practising yoga during pregnancy is one way to heal the split between soul and spirit found in our culture”
Welcome to Cloud Nine Yoga
Hello… my name is Alison and I am a Yoga teacher trained specifically in the pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapist, HypnoBirthing Practitioner working primarily in Edinburgh, Berwick upon Tweed, and East Lothian.
I am a mum of two grown up children and recently became a grandma…this is amazing and scary at the same time! I now live in Dunbar with my husband and dog ‘Ted’ who I love walking on the beach every day.
I am a qualified Nurse and worked as a Health Visitor for over 12 years and then in various roles in a programme that supported first time teenage parents to reach their potential both for themselves and their baby. During this time, I also gained an MSc in teaching and child protection.
Along the way I have also gained qualifications in life coaching, reiki, reflexology, Motivational Interviewing and experience and training in the field of maternal and infant attachment. I currently work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and HypnoBirthing practitioner. For more information on HypnoBirthing, feel free to look at www.cloud9hypnobirthing.co.uk .
Pregnancy and the birth of your baby is such a special experience and working with you through either hypnobirthing or yoga is a privilege, and the most exciting work I could have the opportunity to do.
