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. Apart from being fluent in some of the modern Asian languages, he has been involved with Sanskrit studies for more than 15 years. He is presently conducting teacher training programs with YogaJaya, Yoga Arts of Australia, Brahmani Yoga and Shakti Spirit of India, and Radiantly Alive of Bali, in pranayama, guided meditation and yoga philosophy, the later a series of lectures encompassing the known history, the different disciplines and traditions, and the personalities and masters of Yoga. When not in Nepal or India practicing and researching, Emil is conducting his own workshops and retreats in Europe, and Goa, as well as in Bali, Singapore, Australia, Thailand and Japan (since 2005 with YogaJaya).
