  • Review by a traveler from United Kingdom

    "Ayala is an outstanding teacher who offers elegantly sequenced classes infused with clear and refined alignment. Her teaching is underpinned by her experience of yoga as a practice whose core purpose is to help us step more fully and authentically into our lives; this is woven palpably into all her classes. Her kindness and wisdom shine through in her teaching, and a class with her is invariably a transformative and life-enhancing experience."

  • Review by a traveler from United Kingdom

    "As a regular student of Ayala, I find her classes truly inspiring. She has a natural ability to sense the energy of the room and instruct her classes towards it. She brings her whole self to the class, sharing her life experiences, so you can open up too. She has the rare talent of imparting spiritual teachings in a way that is accessible to all students whatever their experience. I have been practicing with Ayala for over five years and in that span of time, I believe she has never taught the same class twice. Every class is creative, insightful and most importantly joyful. I feel very grateful and blessed to be able to study with her."

    "I have yet to find another teacher whose classes I enjoy as much as Ayala's. Her classes are detailed and focused but full of inner energy and effortlessly touch on yoga's philosophy and meditation. Through her teaching I have gained a much greater understanding of my body and it has propelled the growth of my yoga practice immeasurably."
