Growing up in the West Indies, Vonetta became acutely aware of the natural and joyful ways people healed themselves and each other through touch, dance, storytelling, simple local food, and a slow soul bolstering approach to life.

Further evolution took place in 2014 during Ali's 500-hour teacher training with Jivani yoga in Thailand. It was here, under the tutelage of her wonderful teacher Emma Warmington that Ali discovered the beauty that lies in a slow mindful breath initiated practice. Yoga took on a whole new meaning, one that provided her entry into a far deeper and calmer place within herself, and set her on a new path of discovery and teaching.
