Curiosity led Ali to his first yoga class, on a cold, wet February afternoon in London. He was aware of yoga's ability to improve physical health but had not expected to discover a complete, integrated system for not only physical but also mental and spiritual health - the benefits of which continue to motivate and inspire his teaching today. In London, Ali practiced with some of the UK's finest instructors and experimented with varying styles. In a short time he achieved the goals that had eluded him in the gym: weight loss, increased strength and stamina, but these were just an added bonus to the remarkable positive effect that yoga was having on his general wellbeing and outlook. Ali moved to Los Angeles in 2015 where the natural progression of his journey as a student of yoga led him to complete his 200hr teacher training. He went on to complete his 500hr in 2017 and is currently completing his IAYT Yoga Therapist certification. His zest for yoga and light-hearted teaching style will have you smiling (and of course mindfully breathing) through his challenging classes while his decades of experience as a DJ ensure an eclectic soundtrack.
