Ali Oldani helps students with their physical and mental health goals as a Yoga, Health, and Fitness Teacher and Mentor at Fusion Academy.
She earned a BS in Technical Writing and a BS in Public Relations from Missouri State University in 2014. After graduating, she pursued her passion for learning and sharing the transformative power of yoga by completing 400 hours of training at Yoga Loft in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and at The Lab Yoga in Chicago, IL.
She has been teaching yoga in studio and corporate settings in the Chicago area since 2015. In 2017 she began volunteering weekly at St. Martin de Porres House of Hope on Chicago’s Southside where she teaches yoga, mindfulness, and meditation techniques to women at the center who are recovering from substance abuse, addressing trauma, and dealing with mental illness.
Ali enjoys finding new ways of connecting with her body. Some of her favorites are yoga, cycling, and strength training. She also loves playing with her cats, listening to true crime podcasts, and watching documentaries.
In 2014 Ali swam with a school of 20 foot Whale sharks in the Caribbean.
