Kind words from lovely people

“Yoga with Alison is a highlight of our week.  She has created a place, and atmosphere, of instant safety and relaxation.  She is very knowledgeable and communicates her deep love of real yoga - not the competitive world of big-class, lycra-saturated gym-yoga - in a gentle, healing and mindful way.  Our bodies and our minds feel calmed and refreshed after every session.  If you want to learn yoga, develop your understanding of this ancient practice and also enjoy the physical benefits of deep but gentle movement, we cannot recommend Alison Foster and the Streetly Yoga Shala highly enough.”

Bernard & Janet

“I love my yoga classes with Alison, in her beautiful Shala. It is cosy with the wood fire and the welcome is always warm. The movements are carefully planned and inclusive. I end the practice relaxed and calm. But it is the physical benefits the movement brings me that is balm to both mind and body.”


“Your classes enable me to feel calm and relaxed. You are very understanding of everyone’s different physical abilities and adapt classes as much as possible to suit everyone’s needs. There is always a lovely friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The Yoga Shala is very unique and has a lovely ambience, decorated with the pretty Indian fabrics and cosy log fire. It’s a lovely place to be transported away from the stresses of everyday life.”


“Alison's sessions are knowledgeable, fun and accessible to all levels.  Alison provides a non-judgmental environment where I can leave my responsibilities at the door for an hour and a half each week.  Yoga has definitely helped my physical and mental wellbeing.”

"Never before a prop fan, I now totally get why they are important.

I really liked the supported movements and learning to relax into them."


"The workshop had different sections, starting with a rundown of what to expect in the session, a short overview on how the back works in general which was very interesting, the yoga practice, ending with a deep relaxation with sound. The workshop was thoughtfully put together and it flowed beautifully." Trina

"The session was well structured and was extremely tranquil and relaxing.

It was all great-I did really like the sounding of the gong and the chimes. Something to do with the vibration I guess." Claire

"I wasn't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the session. The relaxation at the end of the session was wonderful." Kathryn
