More About Coach Ali

I am immensely passionate about teaching yoga because I have seen and experienced its transformative power, which allows people reach to their goals, and discover endless amounts of untapped potential within themselves. No matter age, experience, or physical condition, yoga is accessible to every body; my goal as a teacher is to help you find the yoga that is right for you.

I graduated from 200-hour yoga instructor training in 2013, and have since had the opportunity to teach in a variety of contexts. In any teaching situation, I evaluate my students, and customize the practice to fit their capabilities, and increase their strength. I emphasize two-way communication before and after class, in order to cater to student preferences, and adjust my teaching based on student needs. In 2017, I completed a full-immersion 300-hour advanced teacher training course in Rishikesh, India.

I teach group classes regularly in Boston. Students come to my class to be challenged physically, and concurrently experience the meditative benefits that yoga has to offer as well. My past experience teaching at CorePower Yoga has equipped me with practical knowledge in the art of teaching; I am extremely focused on clarity and precision, which is essential for students.

I truly enjoy teaching one-on-one, as it allows both of us to delve deeper into the practice. I specialize in Power Yoga, which is a style of yoga that lends itself well to athletes, and people who enjoy movement and fitness. My understanding of yoga translates to various other styles, which I enjoy sharing with students. Yin yoga is slow form of yoga, which I teach to practitioners who are on the restorative path.

Yoga is for every body. I teach individuals how yoga can help them meet their unique goals.

I have always found release through physical fitness, so in beginning my yoga practice, I was drawn toward Power Yoga- a style of yoga which is very physical, and incorporates lots of movement and heat. I have a regular practice that spans various styles of yoga, which continuously increase my knowledge on the subject. Over the nine years experience I have practicing yoga, I have tried Ashtanga, Power, Bikram, Baptiste, Iyengar, Acro, Ropes, and Yin yoga.

Some might call me a yoga nerd, as I am always studying the subject. I have an ongoing mission to collect information, and eventually launch my own teacher training program.

There are countless benefits to experience from the practice of yoga: stress reduction, increased energy, improved fitness and concentration, pain relief, reverse the effects of aging, weight loss, heal chronic illness, overcome disease... The list goes on and on!

To narrow in our focus, we’ll start with the question: Why do you want to practice yoga? This will give us a great starting point to develop your personal practice, which will allow you to achieve your goals. I’d also like to hear about past injuries, and any particular focus that you would like to incorporate.

I will design a series of postures and exercises according to your objectives, constantly adapt the program to fit your progress. I recommend booking 3-5 sessions at a time to plan for cumulative progression over several weeks. I will provide an initial and follow-up consultation, and assign at-home practices to work on in between our sessions. Each session builds off the previous one, and we will incorporate regular evaluations to stay on track with the goal. I encourage feedback from you so that I can make this as productive and enjoyable as possible.

Client Reviews

I just had my first yoga training session with Ali and she was great. Ali is extremely positive, has such a supportive presence and really focused on what I was trying to achieve. I have trained with several instructors in the past and Ali is one of the best. She tailored my training to the goals I wanted to achieve and I am looking forward to our next session!

We had a great session with Ali and have booked more. We discussed our specific problems, addressed them during the session and found immediate relief from aches and pains. We felt relaxed and had clearly worked out our core muscles, which is important to us. We took away valuable information for every day practice and look forward to learning more.

Ali is a masterful yoga teacher. She set exactly the right pace for my lesson, knew exactly how far to push me, and suggested exactly the right adjustments for each exercise. She does a wonderful job balancing both the stretching aspects in yoga and proper breathing. She is very professional, and clearly cares that her students learn yoga the right way while enjoying it too. The lesson with her was really terrific! I look forward to continuing to learn from her.

I booked a 90 min 1 on 1 session with Ali with the goal of gaining an understanding of the fundamentals of yoga and to start developing my own practice. Ali was professional, knowledgeable, and fun. During the session I was able to practice as well as work on some advanced poses. Ali even took it upon herself to send me a framework, for my own practice, with detailed descriptions of each pose. I really enjoyed the session and would definitely recommend Ali to anyone looking learn more about yoga.

Ali is great. Very conscientious about what you are looking for and takes the practice seriously- really a great balance between strength and restorative and helped me with concentrating on my breath. I'll be seeing her regularly!!

Coach Ali is the best!

She will cater the workout to your needs! Highly recommend.

Coach Ali is great. Very attentive,kind and knowledgeable. Looking forward to more sessions. I'd highly recommend her.

Ali is a wonderful teacher. She has quickly expanded my understanding of my practice, and helped me think about the vast potential I still have. I have really enjoyed our sessions.

My girlfriend and I loved our time with Coach Ali. She was fun, friendly, and supportive: helping us really enjoy our yoga and kickstart a serious workout plan. We would highly recommend her for anybody, regardless of their comfort level with yoga. She really is the best!

Coach Ali has been great to work with! She has always listened to me and has taken how I am feeling on a day to day basis into account when putting together our workouts. She's encouraging and is attentive throughout practice, always making sure I'm aligned correctly. Anybody looking to hone their yoga skills would be well served working with Ali. Even if yoga isn't your primary focus and you're using it as a way to better prepare for other events (as is the case with me), it's hugely beneficial and a great coach like Ali can help a lot.

I am a fan! Ali was responsive in organizing our sessions, on time and prepared when we met, and encouraging in all the right ways throughout. Plus, turns out she's darn good at this yoga stuff. :) I would recommend.

Ali is a talented and thoughtful yoga instructor. She quickly perceived my level and goals, and she designed a really good program to suit my objectives. She's a great coach.

I love Ali's classes. My whole life I've struggled with achieving a clear mind during my practice. Ali's direction throughout the practice soothes, refocuses and motivates me. For the first time now (after 10 years since I was first introduced to yoga) I can say that I love yoga and benefit greatly from each practice.
Ali is always really tuned with what YOUR body needs and knows how to guide you through each move and/or sequence. My friends and I love her classes!
I consider myself a pretty active individual and wanted to try yoga for the associated physical/mental benefits. However, I was hesitant to take a class as I never like being out of my element or not knowing what I'm doing. I knew going to a yoga class with zero experience would be awkward. I didn't know if I would get weird looks walking into a yoga class as a man, or what sort of poses I would be expected to know (I knew none). So, I called Ali. Our session was more comfortable (she is a consummate professional with a warm presence), convenient (she came to my apartment at a time that worked best for me), and helpful (I was extremely confident entering my first yoga class after my session with Ali), then I ever could have imagined. Now yoga is an important part of my life and it might never had become so if not for Ali!
Ali is a passionate, caring and gifted yoga instructor. She pays close attention to students' personal needs and interests by customizing her lessons to make them as productive as possible. She's very enthusiastic and her positive energy infectiously spread to my own yoga practice. She was able to focus on the best combination of postures which helped mitigate the deleterious effects of an uncomfortable sports injury to my back. Ali incorporates the best of numerous styles of yoga which she builds into her lessons to deliver optimal results. It's clear she cares deeply about how she can be a value-added resource by helping students incorporate yoga into improving their lives. I am consistently impressed by the extent of Ali's knowledge base and the way she applies that knowledge to help others.
I do yoga to eliminate chronic pain in my joints. Ali's teaching method provides long lasting relief. She has a gentle touch, melodic voice, and moves smoothly through poses. I always feel refreshed and relaxed after Ali's classes.
