Hi, I'm Ali
I’m a girl who loves yoga, vegan food, independent cafes, singing, colour mixing, mark-making, getting covered in clay, drawing blindfold, walking in the woods and ambling barefoot doing cartwheels on the beach.
I love to swim, surf and paddle in the sea, exploring woodlands and hiking in the mountains. I’m always up for an adventure and I have a bizarrely keen sense of smell!
I am a professional artist with a PhD in Ceramics, and I teach experimental drawing and ceramics at a community arts centre.
I am passionate about taking care of our planet and repairing the damage we humans have inflicted on our beautiful mother earth.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
My Teaching Style
I teach both kundalini yoga and art, based on my training and my personal experience of the creative life-force energy that moves through us and around us.
I believe in honouring your intuition, enjoying the process, playing and being curious, and challenging pre-conceived ideas and expectations about who we think we are, what we believe we are capable of, why we think we are here, and what we could become.
Being present is the biggest gift!
I invite you to give yourself permission to step out of your comfort zone and have new experiences – only this way will you gain knowledge, wisdom, personal power and freedom to live your true potential and be authentically you!
Go at your own pace, simply be YOU, and enjoy the journey!
I am a Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) certified Aquarian teacher of Kundalini yoga, Starchild yoga and Radiant Child yoga. I also trained in Reiki, Chakra Balancing and Sound healing as a gong bath facilitator, and I consider myself an eternal student – always learning, evolving, expanding and re-aligning.
I have a Doctorate and a Masters in Ceramics from Cardiff Metropolitan University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Contemporary Applied Arts from Cumbria University. I have exhibited my artwork nationally and internationally since 2003.
Maybe I'll be able to...
support people and planet
The two core values underpinning Mabe and Beable are to support people and planet, and to this end…
Yoga and Meditation online classes are by donation to make my offerings accessible to all – those that can afford to make a donation are supporting my mission to provide free classes to those that can’t.
Mabe and Beable organises gatherings where members of the community share wisdom and together take conscious actions to care for our planet and inspire change in our collective behaviour.
