Silvana Alfonso comes from an ashtanga based practice. She moved to Firenze from Hawaii, where she studied directly with Pattabhi Jois teachings, from David Swenson to Kino MacGregor to Govinda Kai.
She used to dance and teach before coming closer to the yoga practice -- the transition was just natural. She also used the practice to recover from a bad accident, and learned how to correct the body from bad posture and injuries, starting with the body, and eventually with strong breathing technique, finding the quiet mind.
She loves a strong practice, flowing to the rhythm of great music (sometimes even her own mixes from her DJ skills). A raw foodist who believes in connecting to the universal flow by keeping a clean body and detoxifying through yoga, she also teaches how to take care of the body through nutrition.
