A Letter from Ali M

I’m Ali Machedon, aka Ali M.  A dedicated yogini, laid-back vegetarian, and wife to my mega handsome husband.  I practice yoga daily, I highlight at least 1/3rd of a good book, and I think half-decaf coffee could solve half of the world’s problems.

Here’s one thing I know for sure –  You are your best teacher and the only one who can create real change in your life.  Still, I’m willing to bet that you would benefit from having a friend, a guide if you will.  Someone who’s been through the struggle of repeatedly disappointing themselves, yet has come out on the other side.  Someone who knows how to get you closer to expressing the version of yourself that you know you’re capable of being.  I’m simply here as a guide, delivering you practical practices, spiritual wisdom, and nurturing the reliable roots from which you can grow.

When I’m not teaching students in their self-guided yoga practice, or commuting to my design job at the University, I’m waking up extra early to share honest life-lessons, and working late into the evening to deliver powerful podcast episodes.  And what about the spaces in between?  I’m probably walking Bear.  He’s our dog and my little buddy with a tail.  Through it all, I’m challenging my own beliefs, aspiring to stay centered, and counting my many, many blessings.

Expressive Yogi

Expressive Yogi is a community of incredible people, dedicated to discovering and expressing the best versions of ourselves.  It doesn’t exist without you, so I’m thrilled that you’re here!

Expressive Yogi all started because of my personal need to transform myself and serve others, after a traumatic incident when I lost my almost 12-year-old dog, Sophie (Bear’s sister).  The unexpected tragedy threw me completely off-center, and I was compelled to get real with my apathetic self.  Fortunately, when I finally bounced back I landed even closer to center, than ever before.  Within 6 months I conquered my decade-long addiction to alcohol.  Within 12 months I became debt free, I drastically improved my diet, and I began practicing yoga daily.

Turns out, the transformation that was and is still taking place, is simply me honoring my intuition.  Before, I wasn’t taking care of myself.  So, I surrendered my will to the inner wisdom inside of me,  my intuition, and it has guided me through better decision making and straight into blissful freedom.  And it feels magnificent.  It’s guided me here, to Expressive Yogi, and I am honored to serve to you!  

What’s your intuition guiding you towards? Let’s find out, and honor it.
