About the Instructor
Alli Houseworth is an E-RYT 500 yoga instructor, iRest Level Two teacher, Warriors at Ease certified teacher, and experienced educator and facilitator who is passionate about bringing the transformative practices of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation to the military community as a way to mitigate the effects of chronic stress and trauma.
Alli is the sister of a medically retired firefighter, daughter of an Army veteran, granddaughter of career Air Force and Army veterans, and great-granddaughter of a WWI veteran. She married her husband, an active duty Coast Guardsman, in 2014. After multiple PCS moves in rapid succession that made continuing her previous career nearly impossible, Alli found her way to yoga as a means to reduce stress and anxiety triggered by life in the military.
Alli has taught iRest meditation and adaptive yoga to soldiers in the Army Soldier Recovery Care Units (an extensive reconditioning program for soldiers suffering from visible and invisible injuries) at Schofield Barracks, Walter Reed, and Ft. Belvoir; yoga, iRest, and psycho-ed workshops on resilience and post-traumatic growth at an in-patient treatment center for substance use disorder; trauma-informed mindfulness programs to incarcerated veterans in the state of Maryland; serves as a Yoga and iRest Specialist for O2X Human Performance; in military fitness centers, and more. Alli also served as Executive Director of Warriors at Ease and continues with the organization as a lead faculty member.
While the work she does can be quite heavy, Alli prides herself in her highly educational yet light and fun-loving approach.
