Alan Blighe

Sivananda Yoga Teacher

Alan took up yoga as a teenager, after several years of practicing Karate and Soto Zen. He then trained as a teacher in 2005 with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta organisation. This is a traditional approach to yoga, involving holding postures for long periods, with a focus on breath and mindfulness. His teaching focuses on making yoga accessible, and he is inspired by helping others to find a sense of stillness and peace within themselves. Outside yoga, Alan has a PhD in neuroscience and currently works for NHS England. In his spare time he enjoys skateboarding, video-games and walking on the moors
