Meet the teachers, their background stories, motivation and experience
Lino Miele's interest in yoga dates back to the early 1980's. Lino met his guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Guruji, in Mysore and the beginning of a long-term teacher- student relationship began.
Lino's passion for the practice and curiosity for truly understanding the vinyasa system led him to research this system in details under the direct guidance of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois'. This resulted in one of the seminal studies of the vinyasa system. On Guruji's request, a book was published "Astanga Yoga Book" in 1994.
Sri K. Pattabhi Jois acknowledged Lino for his personal research on the vinyasa method as well as his many years of apprenticeship by giving him the Certificate to teach in 1994.
Lino has regularly returned to study with Guruji in Mysore. In 1996 he completed his second book, on the advanced series A and B, which has just been published (2012, italian version only). The same year, Guruji asked Lino to start giving yoga demonstrations in Europe. Lino started traveling and teaching workshops.
He has established several Astanga Yoga Schools. Helsinki (1997), Rome (2000), Milano (2008), Buenos Aires (2009). Lino visits the schools regularly, holding workshops and summer retreats. The longest workshop however takes place in Lino's centre in Kovalam Beach, here he teaches for two months every year.
Lino has now been touring and teaching for nearly two decades, he is loved, respected and renowned for his joyous and uncompromising way of passing on the traditional Astanga Yoga system.
