Ally grew up in New York City and earned a bachelor's degree from Columbia University. During her senior year, she wandered into a yoga class thinking it was going to be too easy for her, and that yoga was “stretching on the floor.” After one eye-opening session, she was hooked. Not only was the physical challenge appealing, she discovered yoga was a way of being, not something you do for ninety minutes on a mat. In 2001, Ally moved to California to check out the yoga scene and she's never left. She's the mama of two amazing kids and one energetic Labradoodle.
