Alessandro has been practising Yoga since the mid-nineties. He has completed training with David Life and Sharon Gannon, creators of Jivamukti Vinyasa Yoga, and at Laughing Lotus Yoga School in New York.

Alessandro’s classes are physically demanding, mentally stimulating with the intention to affect heart, head and spirit. Emphasizing gracefulness, concentration, safety and laughter, he aims to inspire others to “walk the razor's edge” – the edge being their potential.

"Yoga is absolutely integral to my physical and mental well-being. My favourite classes to attend are those that I don't accurately recall or am surprised to have end around me. Those classes offer a focus and energy I can take out from the studio, that is additional to the strength or flexibility benefits a Vinyasa Yoga practice can offer. As such, I aim to reflect this with a class that is challenging, yet immersive and meditative."

So… what started off as a hobby, became her full-time work in 2003 after completing her training in Los Angeles. “What I absolutely love about teaching is seeing how Yoga benefits those who dedicate their time and energy to it – helping them to improve their mental, physical and emotional health, and also, how Yoga can be available to ANYONE, whatever your ability. Just do your best!”

In February 2012, Kee attended a Bikram Yoga retreat in India which helped his focus and understanding of Yoga. It was during this time he started thinking of the possibility of becoming a teacher, with the knowledge that he could pass on the physical and mental healing benefits of BY to others.
After 12 years of working behind a desk on IT Projects, Kee decided it was time for a change and enrolled on Teacher Training in Los Angeles, Autumn 2012. He went on to complete his Spiralling Crow Vinyasa Yoga and Hot Power Teacher Training with Alessandro and Caroline at YogaVenue.
"Think of the practise as 90mins of breathing and the rest will work itself out..."
