Shantara Yoga

Yoga Teacher & Reiki


"Don't practice yoga to get better at yoga. Practice yoga to get better at living"

Alessia is an experienced RYT 200 Yoga Teacher, who specialises in Pregnancy, Family and Kids Yoga as well as being a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner.

The concept behind Shantara Yoga (in Sanskrit Bringer of Joy) is to share the many benefits and joys of Yoga with the world, including children, because they are our hope for a better future.

Yoga is the connection of mind and body through the breath, therefore Alessia's classes are accessible to everyone, from complete beginners to more advanced practitioners. As you are guided in a journey where you will learn to move freely and in complete awareness of your breath, expect to have a fun class and to leave relaxed and with a smile on your face. When it comes to Family and Kids Yoga classes is a different story, be prepared to roll on the mat with your little ones, make shapes with your bodies and explore partner poses. There is a style to suit everyone!


Alessia is a fantastic yoga teacher- every class is different and she really teaches you how to develop your practice. I always feel great after every class. Her classes are my favorite in Oxford. As well as being a great yoga teacher, she is also very personable, genuine and welcoming, something which is vital for a yoga teacher, but which you don't always find.

Alessia is such a lovely person and a fabulous yoga teacher. Kind, caring and also fun. Takes the time to demonstrate poses, helps and encourages individuals to do what they can. Always happy and so welcoming. Alessia is a kind and gentle person and her teaching is so rewarding that you feel you can achieve in her classes, no pressure just encouragement and fun. Very relaxed and the little massage at the end is the icing on the cake. Thank you Alessia, I just love your classes.
