Are you ready for an adventure? Ali has been leading yoga + wellness retreats for the last four years to destinations all over the globe; from Thailand to Bali, Vietnam, Tulum, Santorini and Bulgaria.
Ali Owens is a Yoga + Meditation teacher based in Los Angeles, California. Ali found Yoga while studying in the World Arts & Cultures program at UCLA. She enrolled in the course as a way to unwind from the long days of dance training. The course introduced her to the history, philosophy, spiritual and physical practices of Yoga. Upon completing her degree, she continued her studies with local teachers and studios while working full time for the Nederlander Organization in Marketing.
After about two years of balancing a corporate life with teaching yoga, Ali set off on a sabbatical to Australia to find herself and decide her next step. She left her job, apartment in Santa Monica and placed everything into storage with the intention to stay abroad for an extended period of time. After about a month, Los Angeles called her back to teach Yoga at Bryan Kest's Power Yoga, model for some of the top fitness brands in the industry, and assist her mentors Briohny Smyth and Dice Iida-Klein. She had found her passion, her calling, and finally had a chance to turn her dream into a reality.
She would not have had the courage nor connections to pursue this path had she not attended her first Yoga retreat to Thailand in 2010. It was there where she was able to gain some perspective on her current situation and discover what was truly possible for her future. She saw the way people lived outside of her hometown and desired to make a difference.
Since then, she has gone on to lead public classes at some of the best studios in Los Angeles, become a featured teacher on Udaya.com, write for popular blogs such as MindBodyGreen + Chalkboard Magazine, and travel the world leading retreats.
