Ali Parnell was lucky enough to be first introduced to yoga as a child when her mum taught yoga in the '70s. The foundation was set then, and she came back to yoga in her mid-30s, around the time of having two children.
Ali started practising Hatha regularly in 2006 then added Ashtanga yoga in 2013. She trained in Hatha yoga with Steve Avian in Sheffield in 2015, becoming a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher.
In addition to that, her Ashtanga teaching has been furthered by teacher training with David Swenson, who was one of the first Westerners to practise with Sri K Pattabhi Jois in the 1970s.
She continues to further her own practise alongside teaching. Her passion for teaching and spreading the word about the benefits of yoga are as strong as her passion on environmental issues and living a 'green' life.
Ali currently teaches
