Alistair served as an Infantry Officer in the New Zealand Army for over a decade, which included active duty tours to East Timor and Afghanistan.
After taking a break from Army life, Alistair began an incredible journey of self-inquiry that eventually led him into teaching Yoga, Meditation and other traditional healing practices to assist in the treatment of Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Having completed his 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training as well as Trauma-Conscious Yoga, Mindful Resilience, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindful Yoga Therapy (MYT) trainings, Alistair is extremely passionate about sharing these life-changing practices with others.
Alistair’s classes are designed to be accessible to everyone regardless of experience level or physical ability. His aim is to generate an open and inclusive space where people feel comfortable to explore all facets of themselves. Inviting everyone to experience the transformational power of these ancient practices as well as providing practical tools that can be taken away and used in everyday life.
