"Opened my eyes to all that meditation has to offer"
BEFORE MEETING ALI MEDITATION WAS A “CHORE” FOR ME- AS AN AVID YOGI I KNEW I SHOULD INTEGRATE MEDITATION INTO MY DAILY ROUTINE BUT I STRUGGLED QUIETING MY MIND AND BODY. I HAD DIFFICULTY CARVING OUT TIME IN MY DAY FOR SILENCE AND STILLNESS AND WHEN I DID I WAS AFRAID I WAS “DOING IT WRONG.” THANKS TO ALI’S GUIDED MEDITATIONS I’VE SHIFTED MY MINDSET AND AM ABLE TO INTEGRATE MEDITATION INTO MY DAILY PRACTICE! ALI’S MORNING GUIDED MEDITATIONS WERE THE PERFECT START TO MY DAY. I LEFT MEDITATION FEELING GROUNDED AND CENTERED IN THE PRESENT MOMENT, CONFIDENT AND RELAXED FOR THE FUTURE, AND AT PEACE WITH THE PAST; MY HOURS WITH ALI OPENED MY EYES TO ALL THAT MEDITATION HAS TO OFFER BY SIMPLY SURRENDERING! ALI’S RADIATES GENUINE POSITIVE ENERGY AND WAS ABLE TO PEACEFULLY GUIDE OUR MEDITATION THROUGH VARIOUS BREATHING, VISUALIZATION AND ENERGY EXERCISES. SHE PROVIDED THE PERFECT BALANCE OF GUIDANCE AND SILENCE, ALLOWING SPACE FOR US TO QUIET OUR MINDS AND BODIES. ALI GENUINELY CARES ABOUT EACH PERSON IN HER CLASS; SHE ALWAYS TAKES THE TIME TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OR DISCUSS YOUR PRACTICE. I WISH I WAS BACK ON KOH PHANGAN AND COULD ATTEND A GUIDED MEDITATION EVERY DAY, BUT I’M GRATEFUL THAT ALI TAUGHT ME TOOLS WHICH HAVE ALLOWED ME TO MAINTAIN A CONSISTENT MEDITATION PRACTICE AT HOME! THANKS ALI!
"greater clarity, lasting benefits"
I would highly recommend Ali. During my studies for my ytt200 Ali lead lectures on Ayurveda, yoga Nidra and Yin. All of these coming together to show a passionate in-depth knowledge of wellness and health.
I had played with meditation up to this point but always struggled with grasping any lasting benefit. Having the opportunity to be guided through early morning meditations each themed and expertly lead, took me from a place of uncomfortable noise to greater clarity.
Whether its delivering a talk on yoga Nidra or guided meditation, Ali has a gift for creating a calm, clear space of serenity, which allows the opportunity to take time and grow.
Thank you Ali for not only educating but inspiring me into incorporating such benefits into my daily practice and training programs.
THANK YOU ALI!
I met Ali during my 200hr Yoga teacher training in Ananda ! She was teaching us the basics of Yoga Nidra, different kind of meditations etc ...
It was so interesting! Ali was Amazing : lots of knowledge, open to discuss more about it etc ...
So I decided to take the Yoga and Holistic Healing Therapies course with Her to go deeper into it.
Well, I Can tell you it was the best decision I took ! we learned a lot about how to practice and to teach yoga nidra , differents kind of healing therapies.... we learned the basics of Cupping therapy, sounds Healing and so much more ....
I truly recommend Ali to you! she is such a great person to be in contact with!
Thank you so much Ali for you time, your good attentions and your trust in us!
I wish you all the best, we keep in touch!
"I would have probably given up right away"
I was so fortunate to have met Ali during my Yoga Teacher Training. She added so much to the course, sharing her knowledge on ayurveda, restorative, yin and gentle yoga, reiki, yoga nidra and more. There is simply so much to learn from her, not even mentioning learning from her kindness and loving attitude to the world around her. I'm grateful for having been introduced to meditation and encouraged to become passionate about my practice. Without her kind, gentle and supportive guidance I would have probably given up right away. Instead, I keep listening to her guided meditations every morning now and I'm thrilled about it. I highly recommend her, especially her meditation course. Thank you so much Ali!
It was a pleasure learning from Ali during my yoga teacher training. My first full reiki experience with Ali was delightful and it definitely put me in a “zen” space which I had never experienced. It absolutely helped me to feel more calm and at peace during a training that can otherwise feel rigorous and nerve racking. I felt moved by the power of reiki and am really looking forward to experiencing this energy again.
I also had the opportunity to experience a couple of meditation sessions led by Ali. I didn’t see myself diving into meditation but I have a lot of newfound knowledge about it and feel very humbled knowing I learned it from Ali. With her soothing voice and calming energy I highly recommend experiencing meditation or reiki with Ali. She truly has a passion for what she does and she’s capable of connecting with you to answer any questions you may have about meditation on a deeper level. Thank you Ali for your genuine and kind spirit.

I first experienced Ali's meditation class when I came for a detox at Ananda Yoga & Detox Center. I was on a 7 day fasting detox, which can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. Ali led the lions share of the morning meditations, and I have to say that with her calm, measured tones and gentle guidance through the session, this was a hugely settling and wonderful start to the day. I can highly recommend her meditations. You will not be disappointed.

Ali is a wealth of knowledge, if you have the opportunity to work with her in any form, I highly recommend it. I was fortunate enough to spend an extended amount of time with her while completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training. She had her hand in many of the workshops as well as other holistic offerings.
Ali was our guide for meditation practices and yoga nidra sessions. I was having difficulty sleeping during the course. During the first yoga nidra session I fell asleep. As much as I tried staying awake through the ones that followed, I always fell asleep. It always felt better than the hours of sleep I got in my bed at night. Her calm and gentle approach makes any environment feel safe. I was under a lot of stress and my body was feeling it. My shoulder felt like I was carrying a five-ton brick, and I was dealing with family issues that were weighing heavy on me. I went to Ali for cupping, and we ended up combining reiki and cupping in one session. That session saved my teacher training. I immediately felt lighter. I felt like I was able to let go of some of the emotional things that were weighing on me and continue the course with a more open mindset.
Ali has a way of listening that feels validating and with loving intentions. Her personality is sweet and genuine. When she speaks with intention and knowledge. She taught me so much about myself through her ayurvedic and energy workshops, and I was able to find deeper meaning in the power of self through her yoga nidras and guided meditations. Ali is one gem of a human. I am so grateful our paths crossed.
"A truly amazing teacher"
I started my meditation practice with Ali and after a few years I still use some of her methods, ideas and ways both when I’m practicing and when I’m teaching. A truly amazing teacher and a very inspiring person.
"looking forward to learning more"
Ali was my meditation teacher during my 200hr YTTC and I also attended her class which was open to anyone. I couldn’t recommend Ali highly enough. She is a sweet soul who has found her passion and you can see and sense how much she loves it every time. I’m looking forward to when I’m on the island next so I can come back and learn more from her.
"It was an absolute pleasure taking the course with her"
I can highly recommend Ali's course 'Yoga & Holistic Healing Therapies' which is specifically designed for any yoga teachers that want to get a deeper understanding of holistic approaches as well as energetic healing. Her course included an extensive list of therapies that she showed gracefully with thorough details, and we got to practice hands-on so we can continue using the techniques on our own as well as on others. I have learned SO MUCH from the course. Many of the things that we were taught I can now incorporate into my own self-practice and into my yoga teachings such a energy healing, mantras, mudras, ayurvedic therapies, meditations techniques, Yoga Nidra, etc. Ali is such a warmhearted, gentle, and kind spirit, and it was an absolute pleasure taking the course with her!
Ali makes the extra effort in everything that she does to make people feel comfortable and confident. She is KNOWLEDGEABLE in many healing therapies, alot of them I had never heard of before meeting Ali. She is always open to teaching and sharing her knowledge with others. Her passion to spread wellness truly feels like it comes from the heart. I've had the opportunity to experience Ali's meditations, yoga nidra and yin yoga. Her calming energy mixed with her tastefully crafted words create a blissful experience. In all of the classes I've taken with Ali, she has offered essential oils! Her attention to detail in this way creates a multimodal approach to her holistic healing. I would highly recommend Ali's classes and courses.
Ali is a wonderful person; kind, caring, humble and eye for detail. And she takes all these qualities into what she does and while teaching yoga and meditation. She has this beautiful calm energy that you will feel and take in as you take her classes. I can really recommend them.
"easy to learn from"
Ali is such a great person to learn from and is so easy to learn from as well. I definitely recommend learning from her in any way that you can. In just a short month she helped guide me through meditations and nidras and I won’t forget any part of it. Thank you Ali
"I WANTED TO EXPAND MY KNOWLEDGE"

"MAXIMIZE YOUR LEARNING"
“Ali’s 5 days Holistic Healing course was truly amazing! Through out the course Ali taught very passionately and skillfully about alternative healing methods like Ayurvedic massage, cupping, yoga nidra, breathwork, sound healing and much much more. Besides offering loads of information there is also plenty of time allocated to hands on practicing to make you feel confident both incorporating these methods into your own practice but also offering them to others. The course includes a morning and evening practice that will restructure your way of living! Ali herself is a generous and warm-hearted person and she has the ability to make you feel comfortable to maximize your learning. As a new yoga teacher this course has given me endless tools to incorporate into my classes - I can’t recommend it enough!”
"comfortable and safe"
Ali has a presence about her that makes you feel comfortable and safe. She is not only KNOWLEDGEABLE in Ayurveda and wellness, but her love for it shines so bright. She is extremely passionate about what she does and it inspires me to continue my path towards wellness. If you have the opportunity to take a yoga class or work with Ali, take it. She is one of a kind.
"I really loved my session with Ali"
I really loved my session with Ali. I felt right at ease in her presence and knew that I was in good hands. I was amazed how I lost track of time and space during the session. When it was time to come back I felt slightly confused for a few seconds as I thought that I was back at home. I haven’t felt that feeling peaceful restfulness since I was a child. Thank you so much, Ali.
"Completely rejuvenated and restored"
Ali is an incredibly tuned in, skilled wellness practitioner. Any healing process can be very intimate, emotional, and vulnerable, and yet I felt incredibly at ease with Ali’s facilitation. I felt safe and comfortable the whole way through, and felt a lot of toxicities get released, mentally, emotionally, and physiologically. It was the first holistic healing experience I’ve ever had with the cupping, abdominal massage, reiki, and toksen. Ali helped me to release a lot of tension and tightness in my body in a profoundly gentle and safe container. I was halfway through a detox when we had our session, in the midst of releasing a ton of toxins that had accumulated over the years. I wasn’t actually sure I’d be able to finish out the detox, my symptoms were pretty intense. I walked out of the session with Ali feeling tired for the first few hours (a sign of a lot of work happening!) but then completely rejuvenated and restored, able to complete the rest of the detox (and my detox symptoms lessened after the session). You always want someone you trust to do this kind of work - Ali is someone you can do that with and can feel that with from the moment you meet her.
The treatment session that I received from Ali was amazing! Not only was she able to really tap into what was going on with my body, she was able to relay the information to me in a very easy to understand manner. She is very detail oriented and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend having a session with her.
After a few weeks of soreness in my back, I met with Ali, to receive her Bio-Alchemy treatment, composed of Cupping, Tok Sen (tapping), and Abdominal massage.
I had never had any of those healing treatments, therefore I was going with no expectations about how I would or should feel afterwards.
The cupping lasted 15 minutes, during which I mostly relaxed, helped with a calming essential oil. Then, the tapping on my back felt amazing especially for the sore muscles.
After a few days, I really could feel less tension in my body, especially around the traps. I highly recommend Ali's treatment and will do it repeatedly. Thank you again!
"Most peaceful and restorative treatment I've ever had"
Ali is definitely experienced and well versed in holistic healing. She provided me her Bio-Alchemy healing which included a blend of Chi Nei Tsang, Reiki, Cupping, and TokSen. It was one of the most peaceful and restorative treatments I’ve ever had. The experience did lead to some purification in the form of intense dreams and night sweats but she was there every step of the recovery to bring awareness and support.
Thanks for everything Ali!
