Alli Becker, Keola® Christian Alternative to Yoga Founder

In 2008, the Lord began leading Alli to bring exercises to the public that included Him, specifically the mind-body genre. She responded by becoming ACE certified and signed up for her first live yoga class via a training in order to equip her with methods and credibility in teaching techniques. Immediately after, she launched fitness classes and through trial, time, and prayer Keola® was officially born. As Alli preached the Gospel through Keola®, the Lord began setting her truly free in health by grace. After years of striving to maintain success through traditional methods that left her fearful of the "fat" returning and still not satisfied, she now helps others find authentic freedom, joy and peace with their bodies, food, and movement through Jesus. 

Today, Alli uses this exercise as a Gospel platform to enable others to benefit from the peace, energy, and well-being that accompany a lifestyle of growing in Christ actively. She hopes to restore hope for health through Jesus and inspire others to live in a way that honors Him with all their being. 


Alli and her family moved to Maryville in April 2008, having come up temporarily for her husband’s business and falling in love with the area. She has two children (one is with Jesus) and began the adventure of homeschooling in 2013. She is an ACE certified Group Fitness Instructor and Health Coach.

Faith and the Gospel that Moves Keola®


"Tell them that I love them and I forgive them." ~ God

Actively growing in the fruit of the Spirit


7. Each person has a choice to acknowledge this understanding of God and give Him glory, honor, and praise or to reject the knowledge of God.  When someone chooses to suppress or reject the truth, their heart is less sensitive and their mind/thinking becomes futile.

8. Those who seek God with their whole heart will find Him.  This truth stands for everyone, at any point in their life, even if they've spent years rejecting Him.  He is patiently and lovingly waiting for you to turn to Him. 


9. God rewards those who seek Him and that reward has been freely given through the work of Jesus, His Only Begotten Son. Those who earnestly seek the Father will be led to the Son.

10. Faith in the truth and grace of Jesus Christ is given freely by God.  We only need to trust Him and receive it.  Faith is from the heart.

11. When you choose to believe on Jesus, the power and penalty of sin and death is removed from you.  His Spirit comes to live in you to give you the ability, desire, and grace to live a holy life in obedience to God.  Choose to walk by the Holy Spirit and not your self.

12. There is an enemy of our souls that works to steal the Truth from our hearts.  Our position/battle as believers in Jesus is to stand on God's promises and faith in the perfect work of Jesus with patient endurance, never bending from the Word of God.  This is done through complete surrender to Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith.  God uses the trials to secure our surrender and refine our faith.  Know His Word.  The truth will set you free.

Alli Becker holds a degree from the University of Minnesota in Biochemistry, has self studied various exercise programs for almost 20 years, and advocates nutrition that is a blessing to Father God's creation. She has personally battled a 30 pound weight gain and body image issues that plagued much of her life. In 2001, Alli began thorough studies of nutrition, recommenced regular physical fitness workouts, and began a healthful eating plan for the first time. Energy was restored, and soon Winsor pilates was added to Alli’s home routines and interests chosen by watching an infomercial. Before long, she reached her proper size with better muscle shaping than ever before. This sparked Alli's interest in slower, shaping, other mind-body exercise, so she purchased a Denise Austin yoga DVD and began that practice.

Alli felt so energized, yet relaxed from the dynamic stretching after working out, that it seemed only natural to add her strong Christian faith through prayer and focus on the Lord's response, love, grace, blessings, and Word as she worked out. The exercise morphed into a moving  meditation and prayer followed by a time of stillness with the Lord.  His work of creating a Christian alternative to yoga had begun.

1. There is only one God, the One True God, who revealed Himself in Truth to Abraham. He is the Living God, YHWH.

2. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob created all things, including all on earth and in heaven.  He foreknew the fall of man and chose out of love to create him anyway.  His plan for the salvation of man was prepared before the creation of the world.

3. Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the fulfillment of this plan of salvation.  Through Him - His life, crucifixion, death and resurrection, all things have been reconciled to God.  He is the only name under heaven or on earth from which each man must be saved.

4. Jesus Christ did not come to judge, reject, or condemn the world (you), but that the world (you) may find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.

5. Eternal life in relationship with God is offered freely to everyone and it is God's desire that all find it.  Eternal life is this, that you may know the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom He sent.  This is not just a "head" knowledge, but an intimate relational knowledge of the heart.  It is available now, in this life, by placing faith in Jesus Christ.

6. The knowledge of God is made known clearly to every person on earth.  God Himself has shown it to them and written it on the inner conscious of everyone.
