Ali Nohinek

My life up to this point has had many phases, highs and lows.  My adolescent years included being heavily medicated and spending countless hours with therapists giving me various diagnoses. I was told and expected to just behave, but in reality I was unsatisfied.

I came to yoga and finally found a way to manage my emotions on my own but it wasn’t until yoga helped me get through the grief of loosing my former spouse that the practice began to take on a deeper meaning. Initially yoga was only a physical practice.

It was only when I was expelled from the Citadel military college two weeks from graduation and just beginning to shed a pesky coke habit that my life and outlook began to make a sizable shift. This shift came about more or less accidentally and began in a group yoga class.

I have been practicing yoga off and on for 20 years. I discovered the benefits when I found I was having difficulty sitting through a counseling session. Lower back and hip pain had haunted me since my 20s. Years later I began to recognize the benefits of yoga for my clients who suffered from anxiety and depression.
