Exciting update for all our Yoga patrons on and off island!

After leading a retreat earlier this year here at Roatan Yoga Ali has fallen in love with Roatan and has returned for a few weeks. 

Dec 12th and 19th at 8.30am you will be guided by Ali here at Roatan Yoga. 

Ali’s light-hearted approach to life brings seamless ease and grace to her yoga classes. Inspired by masterful teachers in a variety of schools of yoga such as Pranakriya, Prana Flow and Dharma Yoga, Ali creates a Vinyasa class that flows like a story, linking breath to movement, focusing the mind. Intelligent and creative sequencing will take you out of your head and onto the mat allowing you the space to discover your self. Precise alignment cues and hands on adjustments allow students to adapt the practice to their bodies. It is Ali’s desire as a teacher to create space for students to be comfortable and yet step outside of their comfort zones, and to serve as a guide for students to recognize their full potential on and off the mat.
