ALLI BRADLEY, RYT
Alli began practicing Yoga as an extension of her BFA in Dance Performance in 2013 and quickly found her passion within the ancient practice. Shortly after her move to NYC in 2016, she obtained her 200 RYT training at The Shala, with her teachers Barbara Verrochi and Kristin Leigh. Alli continues her practice at The Shala with her Mysore Ashtanga teacher Sherry Rusell.
"Growing up as a dancer I struggled to find peace within my own body, having struggled most of my life with body image issues and exercise addiction. Through Yoga I found the power to heal body, mind, and spirit through the connection to my true sense of self and purpose. The Yogic practice of being in the body but not of the body truly transformed and expanded my life meaning and purpose. The tangible and meaningful practice of Yoga has provided my life with compassion and perspective.
As a Yoga teacher I hope to provide the space and clarity to connect all practitioners to a place of clarity and connection; through breathe posture, and gaze. Through the teaching of Yoga I aim to provide a practice that is personal and tailored to each individual while still maintaining the integrity of Yogic practice. As a practitioner and teacher I express gratitude for the guidance of my teaching mentors as well as the teachings Guruji Sri K. Pattabhi Jois."
