Ali says: “Yoga is my passion. I live and breath a yoga lifestyle. As many of you know, I have just complete my Master’s researching New Zealand Yoga Communities. This study has shown me the importance of having dedicated yoga teachers who can guide and inspire students to deepen their yoga journeys. Yoga gives us all the opportunity to focus our mind and breath, find balance, build strengthen, strengthen immunity & gain flexibility. Yoga is also about finding a deeper connection with the world around you.”
