Thirroul Yoga Shala Alyson Johnson #thirroulyoga Alice McConnell Photography


Alyson started a small Saturday yoga class in Thirroul in 2011, returning to her hometown to put down some family roots.

She is a long-time student of Eileen Hall and assisted at YogaMoves in Sydney.

Alyson was also mentored by Fiona Pullen at Ashtanga Yoga Space for three years full time before taking on parenthood.


Those apprentice years were spent emersed in the Ashtanga yoga community among experienced and skilled senior teachers and practitioners learning the Mysore style of practice.


Both of her teachers were very strict but incredibly generous with their knowledge and expertise. They layed the foundation for Alyson to share the teachings of Ashtanga yoga in the Illawarra. 

Alyson lived with compromised immunity for many years after an illness in adolescence. Ashtanga yoga has helped her over the past 20 years to live an active and healthy lifestyle.

Alyson's classes are known for their clear instruction and depth of experience, two things she is grateful to Eileen and Fiona for sharing with her. The Ashtanga yoga community is strong and unique and continues to inform Alyson's approach to teaching yoga.

Jess started going to yoga classes in London in 2007 and after trying many styles and classes she became a regular student at Thirroul Yoga Shala.


Over a period of four years, Jess developed a passion for Ashtanga Yoga and became Alyson's apprentice in 2018.


During that time she studied hard to complete the Anatomy & Physiology for Yoga Teachers course with Yoga Syngery and the Yoga Fundamentals Course. She assisted in regular classes to complete her 200hr certification with Yoga Australia and has been growing and maturing in her teaching practice since.

Jess brings warmth and attention to detail to her classes and lights up the room with her presence.
