Ali was introduced to yoga by a roommate over 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 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. Since graduating from a 200 hour yoga teacher training program in 2007 (Bodhi Tree Yoga, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) Ali has continued on as a committed yoga teacher with an active physical practice and a keen interest in the anatomy and physiology of movement. Having been a keen follower of Jill Miller and Yoga Tune Up® since starting her journey as a yoga teacher, Ali completed the Level 1 YTU Training in October 2015. With a full-time day job as a Research Scientist for a local regional health authority, Ali continues to teach yoga part-time, infusing her classes with the science of movement and guiding people to be researchers of their own body.
