Aly Brock Haugland, began dancing as a little girl and has been driven by her impulse to imagine, connect, and express ever since. In 2006, Aly discovered Ashtanga through her teacher Lori Gualtieri, a student of Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, and her life has been forever changed through the people and experiences that yoga has presented. With over 20 years of professional dance training and performance experience, she was always drawn to fitness and wellbeing. This led her to complete a 200 hr RYT with Asheville Yoga Center and receive a barre certification with Exhale in 2010, and then to teach yoga and barre in Atlanta for 6 years with Exhale Spa and Atlanta Ballet where she was also a seasoned arts administrator. New to Chattanooga, Aly now works with the Hunter Museum and looks forward to getting more involved in the local arts community. Aly brings a compassionate and open heart to her classes, and a since of humor and adventure.
