Ala Oleksy is a graduate of the YogaLife Institute’s 200-hour Classical Yoga Teacher training program. She is also a student of Comprehensive Yoga Therapy and a Reiki practitioner. Yoga came to Ala early on her healing path, opening the door for self study and liberation from mental afflictions. She provides a living example of how a Yogic lifestyle can be a successful means of coping with dis-ease and the stress of modern living. Ala lives by the notion that Yoga is about constant practice and that every effort counts. She shares the wisdom of Yoga in an inclusive and accessible manner, inspiring others to be transformed by this holistic system of living. Ala creates an inviting class environment, allowing students to explore the connection to themselves, others, and the world around them. By creating space in the body through breath and movement, we open ourselves up to that connection.
