Alison Grzyb is a passionate teacher of Yoga and Mindfulness. She has over 500 hours in certifications including athletes, kids and her most recent 300 hour training at Lyons Den Power Yoga in NYC. Ali’s love of studying movement began at Indiana University with undergraduate degrees in Kinesiology and Education and a Master’s in Psychology. She walked into her first yoga class as a runner recovering from a back injury, fell in love with the demanding and healing physical practice and eventually dedicated herself to the mental connection as well. Ali currently teaches yoga to professional athletes in the NHL, collegiate athletes at Rutgers University, corporate companies and is the founder and owner of Far Hills Power Yoga. After 20 years of studying movement and the mind, she is so proud to grow a studio that stands for both physical and mental health and empowers the connection between the two.
Ali’s classes include thoughtful mobility sequences, breath-work and empowering mindfulness techniques, and she cannot wait to share these teaching tools with the trainees. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, you’ll feel Ali’s southern warmth, positivity and wealth of knowledge throughout this training!
