ALYZEH ASHRAFF

Hometown? Los Angeles

Favorite music artist or band? Currently, Chance the Rapper is killing the game for me

Dream vacation? Thailand! I hope to do a retreat there one day :)

Favorite post yoga snack? I always have a Luna bar on me - guilty pleasure (sometimes I eat two in a row)   

A quote you love? “Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Personal mantra? "I love you, keep going. I love you, keep going" - its my reminder to let go and move forward

How did you get into yoga? Growing up in Los Angeles I was surrounded by yoga. I tested out a class in college one day and ever since then I got hooked and embedded it into my daily life. I have moved across the country to multiple cities and its the one thing that always makes me feel "at home" with myself.

Favorite time of day to get your practice in? I love getting my practice in during the AM hours. I am quite the morning person and love starting off my day with a flow!

What's your favorite part of Y7? As a yogi, there's nothing better than being able to flow to the beats that speak most to you. Hiphop has been a part of my upbringing and finding a place where I can merge my passion for music with my vinyasa practice is a blessing!
