Executive Director of the Wilmington Yoga Center, Ali has been practicing yoga since 2000 when she took her first therapeutic class. She joined her mother who was in recovery from breast cancer, and was instantly hooked on a practice that can benefit both your body and your mind. After completing her MA in Health Arts & Sciences at Goddard College, Ali decided she wanted to take her practice to the next level and embarked on her yogic journey. Ali graduated from the Evolve Yoga Teacher Training at Porter’s Neck Yoga Spa in 2011, and immediately began her 500-hour Kunga Yoga certification from the Wilmington Yoga Center where she has taken modules in Ayurveda with Hilary Garivaltis, Non-Violent Communication with Elizabeth Banner and Gentle Yoga and Meditation with Donna Gardner. Most recently she completed her Professional Kunga Yoga Leader Apprenticeship under Kristin Cooper. Her influential teachers include Kristin Cooper, Kas Mueller, Noelle Cavenaugh, and Katherine Isben.
