About the teacher:
Alessandro Sigismondi was born in Torino, Italy, in 1974 and attended University of Turin. Upon matriculation and for 16 years, he worked his way up the corporate ladder, becoming the deputy creative director at top advertising company Italia Brand Group. In 2012, he quit the corporate world and moved to India with his wife Paula and young son Leo to study yoga. He intended to become a yoga teacher while there, but soon realised his real calling in life – as a yoga and movement photographer and filmographer. Since then, he has built a huge portfolio, shooting the world’s most influential teachers like Kino MacGregor and Dharma Mitra, and working with globally-known brands like OHMME Apparel, Liforme as well as big name studios like Pure Yoga in Hong Kong and Triyoga in London. Alessandro has a lot of passion in his job and thinks that sharing images that are both aesthetically beautiful and deeply authentic can inspire more people to embrace a healthy lifestyle like yoga. While he can work on set with big crews or being a one-man-crew himself, he’s always focused in making who is in front of the camera comfortable and at ease, to let them fully express the better version of themselves. Alessandro is based in Turin, Italy, but constantly travels globally. His reach and influence is wide with 90000 subscribers on his Youtube channel and 40000 followers on Instagram.
