Has Worked With Athletes From:
"When I most recently started seeing Aly, I had just had hip replacement and hamstring repair surgery. My muscles were so tight that I had back and shoulder pain. Aly has helped me by using a combination of stretching, massage and soft tissue work. Now, I am able to work out again, the shoulder pain is completely gone and the back pain and tightness is much improved. She has helped me in the past and I completely trust her. I highly recommend Aly. You will definitely be pleased with the results."

"Using Aly’s techniques were crucial to assimilating into the NBA and maximizing my success early in my career. Becoming an All Star and leading all time scorer of the Hornets would not have happened without Aly."

"After dealing with shoulder bursitis for over 6 months and trying solutions like cortisone injections, I was referred to Aly by somebody who previously had the same type of symptoms.
When I started, I was expecting direct work on the shoulder, but Aly took the time to understand where my restrictions were and took a methodical approach to reducing tightness throughout my chest, back, arm, and neck.
She has used numerous treatment options like massages, cupping, stretching, and lava rocks to reduce tightness and improve flexibility in all of the muscles around my shoulder which ultimately removed the inflammation around my shoulder. The treatments have not only helped my shoulder but improved my posture and I’ve also gotten more flexibility in my legs with follow up treatments.
Overall, Aly has provided much more than general massages with her knowledge of the body and treatment options that she has provided not only for my shoulder but my entire body. It’s provided me the ability to get back to working out my upper body and continuing to play hockey without restrictions."

"Ever since I was referred to Aly 4 years ago for ailing shoulder, the discomfort in my shoulder has not been back since. I continue using Aly for regular recovery sessions to maintain my active workout schedule."

"After a severe subduralhematoma I was almost totally disabled. Luckily I was introduced to Aly Faber and through yoga and other physical activity I regained all my strength and then some. As an octogenarian, I believe I have more strength, more flexibility and more energy than I have had in a decade (or more) and it is due to the unstinting efforts of my coach Aly Faber."

"I believe yoga, stretching and breathing help athletes relax away from the water, lengthens them after they have been broken down, and offers awareness on what is going on in their bodies and minds. This can help them find balance and understanding of how to challenge themselves and integrate it in both training and in life. I appreciate Aly bringing this to our team."

"Working with Aly and her program has been a great experience. Yoga has taught me more about how to use my total body strength on the basketball court to make my movements more powerful and explosive. My balance has improved from when I first began my sessions which has allowed me to be more effective and efficient while playing. As I continue to practice Yoga I am sure to see even greater results. "
Assistant Basketball Coach, Clemson University & Former WNBA Player
"The progress I've seen with my cross country team is amazing! They recover faster from races and workouts. We have a lower injury rate and we are finishing races much stronger than in the past. I firmly believe that yoga has brought us closer together as a family, not just a team."
