The Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art will have visiting Yogi, Alex Ali substituting for Elizabeth’s yoga class from May 23- June 6th.
Alex Ali has been a full-time yoga teacher for the past 15 years. A graduate from the Kripalu School of Yoga in Massachusetts, he has had the pleasure of teaching and studying yoga in Boston, Asheville, Seattle, Washington, D.C. & New York City. Alex discovered yoga in high school as a way to cope with chronic health issues and support mental well-being. A lover of movement, he has also studied martial arts, qi-gong, classical ballet, and modern dance.
Alex strives to give students “the glow.” His playful approach and disarming sense of humor set an inclusive tone for beginning and advanced students. Classes are truly eclectic, focusing on dynamic sequencing, rich breathwork, and formal postures for longevity and insight. Whether teaching spicy vinyasa or restorative yoga, Alex emphasizes the connection between physiology and psychology. The body is an instrument to potentiate the self for optimal health, compassionate relationships, and mindful living.
Off the mat, Alex is a licensed Mississippi Realtor© with Keller Williams Gulf Coast and an avid gardener. Alex studies native plant communities and offers garden design solutions based on biodiversity, resilience, and ecological restoration. He’s a strong advocate for pollinators, habitat preservation, edible landscaping, and a plant-based lifestyle.
