My name is Saerin Ally Cho. I'm happy to share with you more about my yoga and legal background below. But first, let me introduce myself and share a bit about my name.
Saerin (say-rin) is my given name and it means the marble light of the world...
“When I had a decision to make about how to manage my yoga teacher training and partnership, I asked Ally for a consultation. She spent time listening to me explain the situation and my concerns, and she asked some insightful questions that I had not yet considered. She explained and clarified some of the law around my concerns and then talked me through a few "what if" scenarios so we could discuss the pros and cons of different solutions. At every step, she made sure to address my questions, provide a perspective that I had not considered, and give me feedback about whether or not she thought a certain action would be useful and why. Our consultation was helpful and thorough, and I will absolutely call Ally again when other legal questions arise around my yoga business.”
“ I met Ally through taking her yoga classes. She has quickly become much more than just a yoga teacher that I take classes from. She is a friend, a mentor and an inspiration. Ally works with her students to build strong communities and bonds that lead to long lasting friendships. Her classes go beyond the physical poses. She has the unique ability to make everyone she works with feel welcome and cared for. Ally is generous, compassionate and truly pours her heart into her work whether it’s related to yoga, law or managing her own business. I give Ally my highest recommendation and feel grateful for an opportunity to work with her.”
“Ally is by far one of my most favorite yoga teachers, ever. The way she connects to every individual in a room before a practice begins and continues to connect through her guided teaching and flow is something I’ve never experienced. I felt her positive energy in the first class I entered and continued to feel it in every one. She’s easily approachable, welcomed questions, offered support, and I only wish I could have her guide me through one of her flows every day! :)”
“She is a sensitive listener and a keen observer. She has a great sense of humor and is passionate about her practice. My husband and I noticed all these wonderful traits as she seamlessly guided us in a gentle hatha session while we were in the Bay Area. Highly recommend!”
“After a long week at work and other things, I always look forward to Friday nights because of Ally’s class candlelight gentle flow. Her class is so relaxing, calming and just gentle. And puts your body and mind at ease. Ally knows her stuff and is an awesome instructor. I would recommend her.”
“I attended Ally’s mom and baby classes in Alameda. She is a fun and engaging teacher, and enthusiastically shared tips about technique when I asked. Ally always started the class asking what we wanted to work on and adapted the practice to our desires. Besides being a fantastic teacher, Ally is also an incredibly warm and welcoming person, and I was really sad to have her leave Alameda.”
"Ally helped me successfully set up an LLC for my yoga business. She guided me EVERY. STEP. OF. THE. WAY. If you're like me, you're inspired by yoga and the not the IRS. Ally is so knowledgeable, patient, and kind that it's almost fun talking about taxes! She truly cares about her clients and never made me feel like I was asking a dumb question. She would even send me little friendly reminders because she knew I was a busy new mama! I would highly recommend her to any yoga teacher who needs help with forming their LLC. This is a much needed service in the yoga world and I'm glad I found Ally!"
"Saerin is effective, quick, helpful and SUPER smart! In less than 24 hours, she was able to create a contract for me precisely to address my concerns for this particular business relationship. I want to work more and more with Saerin because she has integrity, listens carefully and is committed to excellence!"
“I loved Ally’s tax book for yoga teachers. It was straight to the point and very insightful. It took some of the anxiety away from filing my yoga taxes. And Ally is fantastic with customer service. She answered all my questions quickly. I highly recommend all yoga teachers (especially new teachers) get her updated tax book when 2018 tax season is upon us!”
“I’m a San Diego yoga instructor. I used your tax deduction eBook and LOVED it. Thank you for helping to clarify something so confusing for most of us. Seriously, thank you! You are amazing and your services are SO needed!”
