What students are saying

...yoga will always be a personal practice, you get out what you give it. But... when you take class with a teacher that facilitates class the way she does, it allows your own organic process to grow naturally which is what I love most about classes with Alie.
It was another great morning with you at Millennium Park! ... You are an awesome instructor and your ‘real’ yet bright personality is icing on the cake!

Thank you so much for the amazing yoga retreat in Costa Rica! It was one of the best weeks I’ve experienced...The grounds, accommodations, staff, and food at Blue Spirit are amazing. You have found a gem.

...I met so many amazing people and feel recharged, which is exactly what I hoped for when I signed up for the trip. Thanks again for a wonderful week!”
