about

Hello, I'm Alonso.

 

I teach weekly mixed-ability group yoga classes, Chair Yoga and also privately, at Kennington Oval, Stockwell, Brixton, Vauxhall and adjacent neighbourhoods. 

 

My  method and ethos is to promote well-being through Hatha Yoga practice, supported by instruction about the philosophical and subtle aspects of this wonderful, ancient technique of self-refinement and cultivation. (read more)

  • ​If you’re experienced and wish to refine your practice, one-to-one sessions are an excellent way to do it.

 

  • For a beginner, one-to-one lessons are a wonderful way to start yoga especially if you haven’t done any exercise for a while. I will be able to support every step of your practice, assisting you with your weaknesses as well as making you aware of your strengths and possibilities. Having a few private sessions will familiarise you with the yoga postures and boost your confidence if you intend to join our group classes.                                                      One-to-one lessons are also a way to help you recover from injuries or operations.

Monday & Thursday Group classes

before coming to class...

Remember that you’re certainly not the only one who has thought of joining a yoga class but has held back out of sheer fear! Believe me, I’ve been there and I can relate to it. This may be because you don’t think you are supple or fit enough, or because you may have difficulty with following instructions, or even because you feel too stressed out with the perils of life to join “such a Zen-ish environment".

 

Whichever reason you may have, a yoga class is fundamentally a place for learning about and developing yourself.

As a teacher I welcome everyone, of all backgrounds, ages and creeds (yoga is not a religion), and with whatever difficulties they may have. This is why most of my classes are “mixed-ability”.  After the first few sessions your body and mind will begin to open.

  •  It's important that you let me know of any injuries that may affect your practice so I can provide modifications for postures.

  • Arrive at least 7 minutes before class starts to settle in and avoid queueing for payment, that can delay the beginning of class.

  • Make sure your last proper meal is at least 3 hours before class. A light meal 2 hours before should be fine.

  •  Limited number of mats, blocks, and belts available (if you're a first-timer let us know you're coming to ensure there is a kit for you). I strongly encourage regulars to purchase their own mat.

  •  Wear comfortable clothes to allow movement. 

  •  Barefoot grip is much better on the mat, whereas socks can make you slip and loose your balance. 

  •  Pregnant women are welcome from 15 weeks onwards. Please get in touch before attending class for a brief chat.

  • I provide mindful hands-on adjustments to enhance students' understanding of the postures. Please do let me know if you're not ok with it.

  •  Our energy and concentration oscillate from day to day so what you did in class last week may not be available for you today. “Listen to your body” and accept your process.

  • Please avoid perfumes and heavy scents.

  •  A yoga class is a non-competitive environment, a place for self-discovery. Stay focused and enjoy your practice.

  • Leaving class before the end invariably impacts on others. If you're feeling light headed, or not well come to Child Pose or let the teacher know.

  •  Phones off please!

  •  Always feel free to ask questions about the practice, and please don't hesitate to contact us directly any time on 07962 147405.

  • Finally, your teacher is not a guru, but just a normal person on his own path, who is passionate about sharing with all the wonderful tool that is yoga.

  • The NHS now recommends yoga for many different chronic conditions, diseases, etc. Here's their link on this subject: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/guide-to-yoga/

Alonso is an inspirational teacher whose passion for yoga shines 

 throughout his classes. He makes the practice fun as well as pushing us to explore our limits.

Thanks for last night, it’s great to find a class with such a nice atmosphere - very rare in London!

Alonso's classes are very warm and welcoming. He offers a good mix with his classes being physically challenging, yet accepting of individuals' strengths and limitations. I've been going to Alonso's classes for over four years now and have seen great results with my strength and flexibility which is definitely what I wanted.

- Emma

I have practiced yoga for many years, and came to london wanting a class that would allow me to explore everything I love about yoga.

I attended a few different ones which I felt at times did not have the depth of practice that I was looking for. I have been with Alonso's class for almost two years now and wouldn't go anywhere else. What keeps me coming back is the wonderful balance that Alonso creates between extending yourself physically whilst focusing your mind. And of course my favourite part - concentration and relaxation! 

 

For me these four elements are the essense of yoga and can be very challenging, however Alonso seemingly easily helps everyone to do this, whether you're like me who has practised for years or are a complete beginner! 

 

I leave every class feeling calm and amazing, thank you :)
