WELCOME to our global community!
My name is Ali. I am a Yoga teacher, movement enthusiast, spirit junkie, nature lover and arts advocate. My passion lies in empowering people to lead their best lives – full of love, joy, abundance, and purpose.
From a young age, I danced. Dance is what ignited my passion for yoga. I had no idea how my life would change as a result of my first yoga class. My original impetus to take the course was to be able to relax and unwind from the long days of training while I was studying dance in the World Arts and Cultures program at UCLA. What I discovered was a deeper connection to my breath and a genuine interest in the philosophy of the practice.
Yoga followed me into the corporate world. After graduation, while I was a full-time marketing professional for the Greek Theatre and the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, working with the Nederlander Organization, I simultaneously, I enrolled in a 200 hour Teacher Training in Santa Monica. After a Yoga retreat to Thailand with Dice Iida Klein and Briohny Smyth, my life shifted towards a greater focus on health and wellness.
In the summer of 2013, I left my Nederlander to pursue teaching full time and moved to the sunny community of Manhattan Beach. Since then, I have taught at a variety of studios throughout Los Angeles and travelled the world leading yoga retreats.
My classes are taught in an engaging and challenging Vinyasa flow, uniting movement with breath in a continual sequence. This allows for the release of tight muscles facilitating both stretching and strengthening the entire body for increased health and mobility. The intention of each class is to bridge the gap between the mind and body so you experience the present moment. My classes are fun, challenging, and uplifting with well-thought out sequences that emphasize intelligent alignment.

Picasso once said “the meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose is to give it away” In fact you must in order to keep it. Sharing your talents with the world is what makes this a prosperous place to live. After you have spent some time on the spiritual journey, the next step is to share your gifts with the world and participate in karma yoga, selfless service or taking action.
Finding your purpose is a life long exploration into your deepest passions. Let’s learn to trust our intuition and create a life in alignment with what you truly love to do on a daily basis.
