Dharma Bums Travel is a long time vision of mine that formate itself after 21 years of traveling and partially living in India. As my life story entwined with the story of India, I watched the path of development happens, and developed with it myself. Like modern India, I am delighted to introduce myself to the world, as well to introduce my perspective and interpretation to the ancient Indian mythology and philosophy I've been studied.
I am a seeker who is looking for the seer, a traveller and a gambler, a nomad and a no man. I write and play with words and enjoy when they play with me. As a storyteller, i like to listen to stories as well, mainly for those which inspire me.
My main subject of research is ancient India, the India that was there thousand years ago and now existing in my mind. I am fascinated more than all by the Yoga tradition on its many branches. That is what brought me to live and to travel India for the last 21 years, and often to visit the rest of Asia. It brought me as well to study Asia studies, and focus on the philosophy of Yoga as a master degree at university. Later on to study and practice the art of Yoga and Meditation as well.
I started to teach Hatha Yoga in Rishikesh India(2009) under the guidance of Yogi Sandeep, and with the inspiration of the Ganga Ma. The Yoga I teach is a Self Yoga, which I studied over the years from many different teachers along the way of my wanderings. Some at the mountains and some at the yoga studios, some in silence and some of the courses. My main influence is by the teachings of the great sage - Ramana Maharshi (Tiruvannamalai). To all those who lit the spark of Yoga in my heart, I owe much and cherish deeply.
Pranayoga means Yoga of Vital Energy. It does not indicate a new style of Yoga but a practice of teaching, which has grown and developed in respect of the classic tradition of Hatha Yoga and aims to improve the flux and puritication of Prana, both in the physical body and in the subtle structures which constitutes the mind. You will explore the important principles of groundedness and stability, alignment, polarity and minimum effort in a practice supported by basic notions of anatomy of movement, and take the first steps along the path of pranayama, the yogic art of breathing, focusing on uncovering your essential breath and integrating breath and movement; through simple meditation techniques, deep relaxation and visualizations, you will learn the vital elements of mental attitude, concentration and awareness.
