Tela Anderson, a Real Pilates® instructor, has been drawn to movement her whole life. She began gymnastics training at four years old and competed nationally by the age of 10.

She attended some of the most prestigious art schools in the country, including the North Carolina School of the Arts, Virginia School of the Arts, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. She traveled around the world as an elite competitive gymnast and professional dancer.

After retiring from gymnastics and dance, she decided to channel her love of movement into a fitness career. She received her certification in personal training and group fitness and taught at various gyms in New York City. After injuring her knee, she turned to Pilates for rehabilitation and fell in love with the classical method. She completed her Pilates training in 2005 and has been inspiring others to transform their lives through movement ever since. Today, Tela is a lead Pilates teacher trainer and dance instructor in NYC.

We spread mindful movement and take yoga beyond the studio & into the street


We are relentless about making the best yoga clothing in the world explicitly to inspire yogis (and yogis to be) to have more yoga in their life. Inspiring mindful movement is at the core of why we do what we do at Alo—it’s our calling. Because mindful movement leads to better living. This is the real meaning of studio-to-street: Taking the consciousness from practice on the mat and putting it into the practice of life.


Alo began in Los Angeles in 2007 because the founders wanted to spread good by bringing yoga to the world: to anyone who is experiencing the transformative power of yoga, to the world’s best yogis who wear Alo because it’s the only line that actually elevates their practice, to the celebrities and the fashion-forward who wear Alo because it’s the perfect street brand, comfortable, contemporary and decidedly not just for the ma


Creating garments that carry over to the street, into a life lived consciously, takes mindful movement one step further: a beautiful life celebrated with forward design. Capturing what’s trending in contemporary fashion with both the women’s and men’s collections is how Alo and mindful movement can travel beyond the studio. Luxury meets performance in every collection.
