Ali was introduced to yoga by a roommate about 10 years ago - who obviously thought she needed it. As someone who biked all winter and ran and swam all summer, yoga became a bit of a life saver in terms of providing some physical and mental flexibility. Over the years her love of yoga quickly began to surpass her interest in other pursuits - and some may say that is because the Scottish person in her truly appreciates how much cheaper yoga is than fancy running shoes and bikes (well she still spends her money on fancy bikes). In 2007, Ali undertook a yoga teacher training program through Bodhi Tree Yoga here in Regina. Since then Ali has continued her training with a variety of different teachers from Canada, India and the US. She is a committed yoga teacher with an active physical practice and a keen interest in the anatomy and physiology of movement. Ali only knows how to do things one way; the 100% way and that is exactly what you will get from her as your teacher. Ali teaches the Level II Nooner at the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Thursdays, 12:05 - 12:50pm.
