Our tutor, Alison Hawthorn is a BWY teacher and fully qualified First Aid Instructor bringing over 2 decades worth of teaching and yoga experience to her courses. She strives to make her courses informative, interactive and accessible to all, with the aim of having the student walk away with a mental map of how to deal with all aspects of first aid that they may come across. She feels that basic first aid is a truly valuable life skill to have.
