Emil Wendel was born in Switzerland and has been living in Asia since the mid-seventies, studying Sanskrit and Indian Dharma on the Subcontinent, as well as Chinese Philosophy and Taoism in East Asia.

Emil advocates and teaches Hatha-Kundalini Yoga, a method of merging asanas, pranayama and dhyana to develop and deepen a yoga practice beyond the mere physical experience.

The many years of residency in Nepal and India have allowed him an exceptional insight into the depth of Indian civilization and its underlying philosophical current. Apart from being fluent in some of the modern Asian languages, he has been involved with Sanskrit studies for more than 15 years.

We are very pleased to have Emil join us here in Tokyo.

All levels are welcome.

Please note: a fair degree of fitness is recommended for practicing the Yoga Asanas. While we develop our practice gradually and with care over the week,
Hatha-Kundalini remains a physically and mentally powerful yoga-exercise.
