Yoga Basics

This class is taught by:

Ali Leggett

Ali was first introduced to yoga over 15 years ago and the practice has been rooted in her life ever since. “Yoga has helped me to slow down and become more aware of my thought and response patterns. In addition to building physical strength, yoga has increased my mental and spiritual resilience and led me to explore more deeply the yogic philosophies that guide my practice and shape my life.” Ali’s formal education is in Natural Resource Conservation where she has dedicated the past 12 years of her career to preserving natural areas on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. She believes in the profound healing of time spent outdoors and our obligation to be good stewards of the natural world. She is a student of life and a lover of travel, music, creating, and learning. Ali completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Certification in 2015 with Moira Anderson and Laura Tyree at River Rock Yoga. Through yoga she has cultivated balance, connection, and a desire to live fully and presently in this wild and beautiful life.

Anita Brooks


Anita Brooks is originally from Washington, DC and has lived on the coast since 1991. She is the president of her own company ASB Marketing, LLC. She began her yoga practice in January 2001 to help build strength and cope with back problems. Although she enjoyed the amazing physical benefits of her practice, she fell in love with yoga for the soulful peace she experienced from the merging of mind, body and spirit. Through her personal practice, classes and workshops with several national yoga teachers including Doug Keller, Raye Lynn Rath, Cora Wen and Baxter Bell, Anita has refined and improved her yoga skills. Her focus is primarily in the Anusara yoga tradition. She is passionate about living her yoga and enjoys sharing this passion with new beginner students.
