Chilean; Contemporary Dancer & Yoga Teacher (Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Yin), Level 1 Ayurvedic Medicine, Founder of Kulavidyā.Alonso’s yogic journey started in 2003 when he was a student of Contemporary Dance. He began taking classes in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and soon experienced the many positive changes this powerful discipline had on his body, mind and soul. Discovering yoga changed the course of his life and he became a passionate yoga teacher.
He studied with many leading teachers of the Ashtanga tradition such as Sharath Jois, Saraswathi Jois, Guruji BNS Iyengar, and many more. Over almost two decades, Alonso has been teaching yoga around the world. But one place has been calling him back more than any other: Mother India. Since 2016 Alonso travels to India every year to work, study and to immerse himself deeply into his own spiritual practice.
Alonso teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the tradition of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Combining his two professions of yoga and dance, Alonso also became known for his beautiful Vinyasa Flow creations, combining dance/movement, breath and meditation in an accessible way. In his classes, he takes his students on a journey to the heart, enabling them to practice to their own level of ability. His dynamic yet soft presence, enthusiasm, intensity and sensitivity lead his students through a practice that is challenging, uplifting, personally rewarding and well-rounded in every aspect.
More than anything, he loves to go deep into spiritual healing and meditation through yoga, aligning the physical body with the mind and soul. Alonso’s commitment is to inspire others to realise their gifts and powers and step fully into their most brilliant selves.
