Welcome to Devi Shakti Yoga.

Who Is Devi Shakti?

The goal of Devi Shakti is to address the root cause
of hormone problems, naturally!

A hormone imbalance is one of the most common health conditions women face today. We are seeing an epidemic in hormone related conditions such as; endometriosis, PCOS, cysts, fibroids, and other menstrual irregularities.

Women aren’t taught what a normal menstrual cycle should look or feel like, nor are they aware of what to expect during menopause. When an imbalance occurs women aren’t aware of it, or how to correct it.

Symptoms such as: Period pain, irregular or absent periods, irritability or PMS, acne, breast swelling, fatigue, headaches, bloating, fluid retention, weight gain, cravings or binge eating, digestive problems, mid-cycle pain, infertility… are not normal, but are often assumed to be a normal part of the cycle.

Dr Alison Howes believes that knowledge is power and teaches women how to care for their beautiful bodies naturally. Devi Shakti provides a holistic, yet scientific approach to improving women’s health through: diet, correct nutrition for the female body, yoga asana and meditation to support healthy hormone production.

The goal of Devi Shakti is to help liberate women from pain, discomfort and poor health, enabling them to discover the Divine Goddess within!

Meet Dr Alison Howes ...

Dr Alison Howes is a qualified Yoga Teacher with a PhD in Applied Science.  After suffering through endometriosis, thyroid disease, anxiety and depression, Ali turned her research to Yoga Therapies (the science of yoga) to better manage her health. She furthered her studies in Trauma Sensitive Yoga—a unique style of Yoga to help rebuild neurological pathways and which enables the student to manage hyper-arousal and triggering. Her research and practice applies the psychological theories developed by leading researcher in psychiatry and trauma, Prof. Van der Kolk.

Alison is also trained in Mindfulness and Shamanic practices. Her yoga is therefore truly unique and combines a combination of these therapies to help recondition the nervous system whilst improving hormone production. Her practices work the body deeply on both an emotional and physical level and have been successful in managing both hormonal conditions and traumatic stress.

Before starting yoga last year, I had suffered migraines every month since puberty. They had reached a point where I could no longer go about my normal day a couple of days each month, and I was constantly taking pain medications. After working with Ali on specific poses and yoga practice a couple of days each week, after 6months my migraines are all but gone. If I feel a headache coming on, a few specific yoga poses usually prevent it from progressing.
