Asana, the term by which postures in Yoga are traditionally defined, means “comfortable posture” or “sitting comfortably.” From this starting point, we propose a journey within the body using the breath as a guide, in search of an inner space hidden deep within, in which to try to be “comfortable.” Another space, other than the physical one, that our body contains, and to which we should learn to turn to find a deeper and clearer essence. 

Federico Torre graduated in History of Cinema at DAMS in Bologna, during his university years obtained important publications in specialized paper magazines such as Carte di Cinema (Bologna) and Cinergie (Udine) distributed by Feltrinelli. Since 2016 he has been pursuing a collaboration with Ondarock, specializing in the popular music of Southern Italy and for which he produces interviews and reviews of records and concerts. He has collaborated with the municipality of Chiavari in organizing cultural events (in particular The Circus of Dreams in 2019). He is passionate about the history of contemporary art, particularly modern Spanish painting and expressionism in general, for which in 2019 he curates an important exhibition dedicated to the painting of Roberto Altman at the Commenda Museum in Genoa. Always interested in holistic disciplines and various religious traditions, in 2017 he obtained his Ashtanga Yoga teacher’s certificate at Centrolistico in Sesto San Giovanni (Mi) following which he began giving private lessons and which led him to a long in-depth journey to India in 2022, at Master Jamuna Mishra’s School and Home in Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh, during which time he began to understand yogic culture in its broadest and deepest sense. He has been interested for more than 10 years in the practice of meditation, studied and practiced according to various disciplines: from the Christian one on the breath learned in particular from the Reconstructionists in the Prayer of St. Peter Vara (Sp), to the Buddhist one practiced through the Tantric Self-Healing practice Ngalso conceived by Lama Gangchen Tulku Rinpoche and learned at the Healing Meditation Center in Albagnano (Vb).
