ALI'S YOGA HISTORY
Ali has been drawn to the benefits of yoga since she was about 5 years old. Once she entered college, she truly began to connect with the spiritual aspect of yoga and dedicated herself to the practice. In 2016, she received her 200 hour RYT certification from the Zen Den School of Yoga with a focus in Vinyasa, Hatha, and Restorative Yoga; heated and non-heated.
Her classes are known for an emphasis on alignment, encouraging students to listen to their body, and taking what is learned on the mat to off the mat. One major thing that inspires Ali to help spread the benefits of Yoga and meditation, is how it has helped her through many struggles in life.
Ali is also Reiki (Level 1) certified. Reiki is a healing technique in which the practitioner can channel energy into the recipient to activate the innate healing processes of the human body. This helps to restore physical and emotional well-being. Ali also is a wellness consultant through a company she loves called Arbonne (more info below).
Through Yoga and wellness, Ali's goal is to guide people to tap into a deeper part of themselves. "Everything that is positive, already exists within us. Sometimes we just need help rediscovering it."
The Swedish company has been around for 40 years and is vegan, gluten-free, and has over 1,000 of harmful chemicals banned from their products. Their products range from nutrition, to beauty, to skincare, & more. Some of Ali's favorites are their protein powder, energy fizz sticks, detox tea, and mascara!
