My yoga practice come from Yoga Purna or Yoga Integral, that was thought to me by Yaquinao Guash and Eric Manquez when I was living in Chile. Yoga Purna comes from the influences of Sri Aurobindo and Swami Asuri Kapila.

However my knowledge and teachings of the Vedas come straight from the Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya tradition, that was passed to me by Jeffrey Armstrong/Kavindra Rishi.

It is a pleasure to meet you, Umberto. You have an interesting profile on Haus Yoga Vidya's social network, and I was able to understand most of what was written on your beautiful website as I spent 6 months in Florence, Italy, nearly 30 years ago. Of the teachers that you list above, where did your knowledge of yoga nidrâ come from?

If it interests you to see more video of André Riehl discussing various aspects of Nidrâ Yoga in the Shaivaite tradition, please visit:

Please keep in touch.
