Aleksei Zukov

Aleksei is a Jivamukti yoga teacher with a background in martial arts and acrobatics, and so his vinyasa flow classes offer a strong, sustained practice with some interesting poses thrown in. Expect motivating instructions and hands-on adjustments, as well as pranayama and chanting.
 

Aleksei believes that yoga is not only a physical practice but a spiritual one where the practitioner dives deep in the study of the Self and learns to attain a higher level of consciousness.


Aleksei Zukov instructs the following:
  • jivamukti yoga : all levels
  •  
    Jivamukti yoga integrates the physical, philosophical and spiritual aspects of yoga.

    Classes include strong flowing sequences of yoga postures taught to music, with breathing exercises and chanting.

    All levels - everyone welcome, differing abilities are catered for. Complete beginners should be aware that a minimum level of fitness is recommended as these classes may be faster paced or more physically challenging.

  • ashtanga yoga : all levels
  • A vigorous practice, moving from pose to pose at a sustained pace. Expect a workout that builds up strength, flexibility and stamina.
     
    The same sequence of poses, the Primary Series, is repeated in each class so you ultimately commit it to memory and can move on to self-practice. When fully integrated, the practice becomes like a moving meditation as you no longer need to remember the sequence.
     
     

  • vinyasa flow yoga : all levels
  •  
    A dynamic flowing practice of postures drawing on the ashtanga yoga tradition yet with creative sequencing so that each class is different.

    Deep stretching for strength and flexibility leaves you energized yet relaxed.
