Aleksei's yoga journey started in 2008 at a Bikram Yoga studio in London. Having a background in Martial Arts, Acrobatics and Break Dance, he quickly fell in love with asana practice and continued regular training in a hot room for a year. Aleksei believes that everything that Yoga represents as a science is not just a physical practice – it is a spiritual one where the practitioner dives deep in the study of the Self and learns how to elevate his or her consciousness towards a spiritual platform, thus becoming the master of his or her own life and coming closer to God. A spiritual awakening led Aleksei to the former Jivamukti Yoga School in London. Jivamukti Yoga is a physically challenging, artistic and cleansing practice charged with spiritual teachings from ancient scriptures that is focused on compassion to all beings– human and animal. He trained at the Omega Institute in New York, USA with founders of the method Sharon Gannon and David Life in 2013 and has been teaching full-time ever since. His classes are based on the 5 tenets of Jivamukti Yoga – Nada (Sound), Shastra (Scripture), Ahimsa (Non-violence), Bhakti (Devotion) and Dhyana (Meditation). Along with that expect a creative and challenging asana practice combined with pranayama breathing techniques, some Sanskrit chanting, and a powerful soundtrack.
