Hi, i’m ali

 

Hi there!

Thank you for finding us here. My name is Ali, and I am a mom, yoga teacher, meditation guide, nature enthusiast and avid traveler.

My journey with Yoga began in the World Arts & Cultures program at UCLA. I was a junior and seeking to fulfill my movement credits as part of my dance major. What I found was a practice that transformed my relationship to my body and more loving environment within. Up until then, I had tried to be what everyone else wanted me to be, as a professional in the industry, I was constantly on dance and modeling auditions. Yoga brought me back home to myself and allowed me to get in touch with the deeper desire I had to connect to my community and see as much of this beautiful world as possible.

When I graduated from college, I completed my 200hr teacher training while working full time for the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. I loved spending those summer days out at the park, immersed in the knowledge and history of this ancient practice while studying with some of the most celebrated teachers today.

Upon completion of my certification, I started teaching privately and at Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga, a popular donation based studio in Santa Monica. After a few years of balancing corporate with teaching life, Bora Bora called me and I answered. I left my job, flew away to this beautiful island for a yoga modeling job and never looked back. I started my journey in Australia but only stayed for a month before landing back in my home town now, Manhattan Beach.

Over the years, I have been blessed to work with a number of organizations who are passionate about sharing health and wellness with the world. The Green Yogi Online, YogisAnonymous, YogaGlo, Udaya Yoga, Unplug Meditation, YogaWakeUp amongst others. All of these platforms have classes and programs I developed for them to serve you on your journey. Check them out for some amazing content from not only myself but from other incredible teachers around the globe.

In the summer of 2017, my husband and I welcomed the light of our lives, Clover Breeze. She travels with us everywhere we go and is already a little yogi. Learning how to parent using these practices has been transformative and allowed us to develop a stronger bond at home. We are able to communicate, practice patience and enjoy all of the little moments that make up the miracle of her life. Life is truly a blessings and I realize just how precious it is being a mother.

Now, I lead public classes at The Green Yogi, Rooted Beings, and Unplug Meditation in Santa Monica. All of these studios have new student offers but if you send me an email ali@aliowens.com, I would love to invite you to your first class as my guest. My passion lies in empowering people to lead their best lives through movement, mindfulness and Ayurveda-based nutrition. If you would like to book a private consultation with me, session are available in person or via Skype. Please keep in touch on social media at @aliomyoga.

Sending you so much love along your journey. Thank you once again for being here and perhaps choosing to join our growing community!

Love and blessings,

Ali
