Ali is as zen as it gets. That's why her nickname, Ali "OM" is so fitting. And we love the calm, yet challenging vibe she brings to her classes.
Ali was first introduced to yoga while studying in the World Arts & Cultures program at UCLA. She spent her youth performing professionally as a dancer, but instantly became hooked on all the benefits of a yoga practice.
After graduating, she enrolled in a teacher-training program at the Yoga Collective in Santa Monica, CA. Since then, she has taught at numerous studios around Los Angeles including Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga, Yogis Anonymous, Cycleates, and The Hub. She is an accredited instructor for Ocean Yoga as well as the pioneer for the web based yoga series, Breaking Down Dog.
Ali has also modeled internationally for various yoga products including the Ocean Yoga Board and Lotus Yoga. Aside from teaching, she enjoys traveling and regularly coordinates workshops and yoga retreats to destinations around the world.
