Ali Fitzsimmons first discovered yoga through a modern dance class at the University of Virginia in 2005. From there, she experimented with various styles of yoga, eventually finding Iyengar yoga at Allied Yoga in Charlottesville, Virginia. Ali completed an apprenticeship under studio owner Shaaron Honeycutt and then completed a 200-hour vinyasa-iyengar training program through Yoga Works in Richmond, Virginia in 2013. Since then, Ali has brought yoga to children and teens through work with Department of Public Health and school systems, as well as older adults at rural senior centers. She has also partnered with Advantage Behavior Health Systems to bring yoga to female participants in an outpatient treatment setting. Ali believes that yoga can be for everyone and that it can improve health outcomes and quality of life no matter who you are. Yoga is a vehicle for self-discovery and human evolution.
