What students are saying

...yoga will always be a personal practice, you get out what you give it. But... when you take a 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.

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.

Thank you for another wonderful week on yoga retreat with you. It was such a beautiful week of contradictions — I got to slow down and be more active, socialize and be alone, be silly, be contemplative, eat a lot but be mindful about my food choices. I loved everything about my week at “adult” camp and can’t wait to be a three-timer. Thanks for making such a week possible.

...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!
