YCN Partnership with Adventures for the Soul

Qualifications: BSc Environmnetal Management, PGCert Environmental Conservation

First of all - for those who don’t know me - I’m Alison. I'm passionate about the natural world and the outdoors. I hold a BSc degree in environmental management and PGCert in environmental conservation. I'm a keen fell walker and love the north of England for all it's wild places.  For me, being in nature is the great restorer.

I set up Adventures for the Soul in 2019 after I experienced just how good being out in nature is for you.  I had a strong desire to share what I'd discovered a few years back when I fell really ill and lost absolutely everything.

Since 2009, I've taken people to some of the most stunning areas of the UK on yoga, mindfulness and contemplative walking holidays.

Over the last 18 years, I've run wellness sessions & nature experiences for: Manchester University, Creative Support, Red Rose Forest. Groundwork Trust, Walking Women Holidays and Glenthorne Quaker Centre. Participants came from: BBC, central Government, Tesco, Nissan, Jaguar, NHS, JP Morgan, Deloitte, Vodafone, Glaxo, Sheffield University and Lancaster University.

I'm a wellness coach, mindfulness practitioner, yoga instructor, holistic therapy specialist and former Zen Buddhist.

I've blogged for the The Elephant Journal & The Huffington Post, and appeared in the Express magazine - Life & Style.
