How Aligned came to be...
The story of how Aligned Yoga was born is one of hard work, dreams, serendipity and passion. It's the story of how a family came to be. And it all starts with Bri, our founder.
With over 15 years of experience building teacher trainings, online content, festivals and retreats, Bri enjoys serving the global wellness community. Her dedication to yoga as a practice shines through her signature method that helps yogis from all levels uncover the range of their abilities. Her favorite moments are helping people find and blend their unique values into their practice and integrating mind-body connection into daily life. Her immense social following is a direct reflection of her understanding on how to guide students to evolve naturally in their own journeys.
Having experienced all that the yoga industry has to offer, Bri founded Aligned Yoga to be a haven for yogis all around the world. Her biggest hope is that we can all do what we love, while always remembering to love what we do. And to make this dream into a reality, she recruited a global team of passionate people, affectionately known as Team Aligned.
Believing in the power of diversity, everyone at Team Aligned comes from different backgrounds. We all share one thing in common: our passion to push boundaries and create the best possible environment for yogis to thrive in. Every day, we put our unique super powers together and show up for our community - in every way we know how.
MEET TEAM ALIGNED
CHIEF HEART OFFICER
As our co-founder and first hire, Marcela is the driving force behind Aligned Yoga. She is in charge of operations, which is a fancy way of saying that she makes sure that things are running smoothly and that everyone is happy. As our resident mama bear, Marcela thrives when she knows that her team and yoga family are thriving as well. With a business background, Marcela's super power is making dreams come true; she believes that anything is possible with hard work and Google on her side. With the support of Bri and Team Aligned, Marcela is currently pursuing her passion to help people discover how to turn their passion into their career while sharing her personal journey towards self-discovery, mental health and entrepreneurship.
CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER
Andi, as her Aligned friends call her, is in charge of communicating the Aligned message with its global community through all things marketing. As a professional marketer, Andi enjoys challenging herself by keeping Aligned's community engaged and surprised through viral content and life-transforming initiatives - in every shape or form. If you like our newsletter campaigns and our social media posts, you are sure to be familiar with her work. She thrives on connecting yogis with Aligned and providing the help they need to take their yoga journey to the next level. In her down time, Andi enjoys living life one day at a time by engaging in her favorite activities: HIIT, healthy cooking and caring after her plant collection.
CHIEF HAPPINESS OFFICER
Emi, as everyone in the Aligned family calls her, is in charge of supporting our student community through their journey of learning and self-discovery. As a certified psychologist, Emi enjoys supporting anyone who reaches our inboxes and helping them uncover their path to reach their personal goals. Known for her kind words, Emi enjoys holding conversations and helping in any way she can. Besides being Aligned's biggest fan, Emi pursues her passion for mental health by helping the spanish-speaking community heal their relationship with anxiety through emotional self-discovery alongside her cat & assistant, Diana.
Jess, as we lovingly call her, is in charge of managing our programs and supporting our student community. As an Aligned Yoga alumna and teacher, Jess knows firsthand how to support others in exploring their bodies as much as their minds and enjoys helping others move beyond just "making shapes". In addition to being a 500-hr certified yoga teacher, Jess also has certifications in Functional Range Conditioning and Acrovinyasa. When away from the mat, Jess can be found playing The Sims, cuddling with her cat Ashes and exploring the world through travel.
Doris is in charge of creating our new offerings and supporting our student community. She is an Aligned Yoga alumna and teacher passionate about elevating and empowering people to become the best versions of themselves and helping them realize their highest potential. After a successful career in Finance, Doris leveraged her life experiences and business background to pivot into yoga and wellness. She is now pursuing her calling as a mentor, life coach, and building businesses & communities. When she isn’t on the mat, Doris is always looking for an adventure and constantly exploring. If it’s not scuba diving or snowboarding, you’ll find her living life to its fullest in Asia and traveling the world.
