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.

This challenging sequence explores new ways to approach handstand. You will move through the warmup series quickly in order to make time to play upside down. It is a balanced flow so you will open up the hips, shoulders, and hamstrings before building heat in the core to prepare you for flight. An enjoyable class for those with an existing handstand practice or those who would like to try something new!
Join us for this short class that provides an introduction to the chakras and how to incorporate them into your vinyasa flow. We will begin by setting the foundation, discussing the root chakra, and conclude with savasana, to connect to the crown chakra. If you have been looking for a way to add more depth and awareness to your practice, this is the class for you.
This practice focuses on opening the hamstrings and shoulders so you can prepare for hanumanasana, or the splits. This is also a great pose to practice to prepare you for standing balances and handstand. You will get a little bit of everything in this class - vinyasa flow, hip openers, heart openers, lower back, upper back, and shoulder openers - for a full body practice. All of this will prepare you for a long rest and reset in pigeon pose and savasana.
