I consider myself a pretty active individual and wanted to try yoga for the associated physical/mental benefits. However, I was hesitant to take a class as I never like being out of my element or not knowing what I’m doing. I knew going to a yoga class with zero experience would be awkward. I didn’t know if I would get weird looks walking into a yoga class as a man, or what sort of poses I would be expected to know (I knew none). So, I called Ali. Our session was more comfortable (she is a consummate professional with a warm presence), convenient (she came to my apartment at a time that worked best for me), and helpful (I was extremely confident entering my first yoga class after my session with Ali), then I ever could have imagined. Now yoga is an important part of my life and it might never had become so if not for Ali!
