Ali Mischke earned her 200-hour yoga teacher training certification in 2009 and her 500-hour certification the following year, both with David Vendetti of South Boston Yoga. Ali’s classes are heavily informed by her work as an Advanced Structural Integrator, in which she uses manual therapy and movement education to improve posture and reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Ali weaves her passion for anatomy and healthy movement into her classes: through precise alignment cues and intelligent hands-on assists, students learn to make each pose feel both useful and delicious. Classes also emphasize mindfulness, self-compassion, and a sense of playful curiosity. In this way, students develop tools for a lifetime of joyful and sustainable movement on and off the mat.
Ali loves to run, hike, walk, roll around with dogs, and soak up the ocean; her active pursuits help balance her enthusiasm for cooking and tasting new vegetarian delights.
