Ali began his yoga journey about 4 years. After moving to Pittsburgh in 2021, he immediately joined Yoga Flow and fell in love with the community and instructors. Ali took the teacher training with Dominique and Michelle in 2022 and teaching yoga has since become one of the most rewarding and irreplaceable experiences of his life. During class, Ali likes to focus on the fundamentals of the positions because -- in his opinion -- you can never get too good at the fundamentals.
During the day (and sometimes late nights) Ali works as a postdoctoral associate at the University of Pittsburgh, conducting research economics and public policy.
