Ali began practicing yoga in college as a way to reconnect with the natural movements that she loved growing up competing in gymnastics and cheerleading. Soon after she began practicing yoga it became apparent that it had far more benefits than just increased flexibility and a great workout – yoga became a powerful outlet in her life as she continued to sculpt a stronger body and develop a more open mind. After graduating from Indiana University in 2010 Ali began working in the yoga industry and later received her Registered Yoga Teacher 200 (RTY200) hour certification through Yogaview in 2012. Ali is now an ambassador for Lululemon and has since studied under Seane Corn, Maty Ezraty, Leslie Kaminoff, Kathryn Budig, and many other amazing yogis in the Chicago community. Ali primarily teaches Vinyasa yoga with an emphasis on alignment and intelligent sequencing and believes that yoga is for everybody! In class she always addresses the mind-body connection that can turn daily stress into a tool for self growth. Ali feels that yoga has brought about positive change in every aspect of her life and loves to share the transformative power of yoga with others.
