The course offered is based on nearly three decades ( more than twenty five years ) of my personal experience of living Yoga.
In the eighties i’ve learned pranayama, yogic and ayurvedic ethics and lifestyle, philosophy, concentration and meditation techniques directly from my mum’s and his partner, an indian teacher and accomplished yogi that had lived in the Shivananda ashram in his youth.
In the nineties i’ve spent extensive periods of time in Swami Kriyananda’s villages in Italy and California. From that experience and Swami i ‘ve learned Karma Yoga ( selfless service) , Bhakti ( devotion), more on yogic lifestyle and philosophy and most important other techniques of pranayama , visualisation and meditation that go under the name of Kriya Yoga. That experience has also taught me the importance of the Sangha community or as Swami would say ” Many hands make a Miracle!” and what today we call Heart Synchopation and Heart Field Coherence .
Finally in 2003 i ‘ve met another important teacher that has shaped me into who i’m today: Shiva Rea. Shiva is an incredibly inspiring yogini fire-keeper, pioneer of Vinyasa Flow , a branch of modern Yoga stems from Krishnamacharia and integrates the tantric roots of Hatha Yoga with Ayurveda, Bhakti and somatics.
Elements of Classical and Modern Yoga, devotional and scientific approach all come together in this course to offer you a cutting edge program that aims at integrating the ancient teachings of Yoga into our contemporary lifestyle!
It is with enormous Joy and dedication to Yoga that i’ve created this training and look forward to hearing from you and interviewing you if you would like to join in.
