Meet the founder, Ali Bullano
Ali is an international yoga and meditation teacher, a business owner, and social worker. As an undergraduate Psychology student at Virginia Commonwealth University, Ali took a class called Zen Buddhism which changed the way she thought about life. That class sparked her hunt for self-realization and since then, she has explored various techniques to increase awareness and reduce suffering. Through the self-healing properties of meditation and yoga, her life transformed from depressive and anxiety-ridden to open-hearted and purposeful.
Ali has been teaching since 2012 and has completed 500 hours of yoga teacher training education with Yax Yoga Concepts, based in Virginia Beach. She moved from Richmond, Virginia to Denver, Colorado in 2015 and opened Zenver Yoga in Highlands Square shortly after. She has since closed the physical studio but continues to teach live-stream and in-person classes at Nurture, a wellcare marketplace in the Highlands.
In Ali's classes you’ll experience guided meditation, breathwork, meditative music, and intelligent sequencing focused on opening the myofascial lines of the body. She weaves contemplative themes and insights into each class to build awareness and to encourage mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. With her affectionate personality, heartwarming approach, and soothing voice, you will feel right at home.
Ali holds a Master's degree in Social Work, offers holistic mental health counseling through The Golden Wellness Center, and has current interests in nature-based therapy, mindfulness and somatic-based therapies, and energy healing. When Ali is in her element she is dancing to live music, going barefoot in nature (earthing is a game changer), enjoying Italian food, and traveling.
