To experience Yoga with Yali is to be uplifted physically, spiritually and emotionally.
Physically, she will make your stronger through her rigorous yoga practice and you will do things you did not know you could do.
Spiritually, she will help you to open your heart with her beautiful and thought-provoking readings and chants. At the end of the practice you will be in a new place emotionally as your body and your heart pull you to something greater.
Yoga with Yali is not just one thing — it is a true union for your mind, body and spirit and a path to a better place.
Pranassage with Yali is out of this world. She will use her Yoga — and her feet and elbows and knees — to help your body to go back into its most perfect alignment. Pranassage with Yali creates an experience that is so much more than massage.

“Yali is a true Yogini on all levels. She is strong in her posture practice but never losses sight that Love is the operative silent partner in all her teaching. She is a woman with a mission and yet always stops to be with you where you are. It is always a pleasure being taught by her.”
AMBA STAPLETON – Director/Founder of Nosara Yoga Institute
Yali is a strong and beautiful presence. Her authenticity allows one to connect with the center of one’s being. I experienced this during a meditation guided by Yali. Her voice took me to a place I had never been before. I connected with my heart, with my breath, and with my tears.
Thank You, Yali. Light and Love.
