I'm Antonio, the person behind this project, whose name honors the strength and nobility of elephants, considered in Hindu mythology as the guardians of travellers and wisdom.

For 25 years I've been practicing the internal arts of breathing meditation and ancient yoga, for which I made several trips to India, a country where I lived for approximately 12 years.

With Modo Elefante my goal is to pave the way to a deeper exploration of breathing meditation, through ancient practices which have been helping thousands of people find clarity and fuller ways of living for centuries. In this sense, I hope in some way to contribute to the inner well-being of those who connect with me; It will be a pleasure to meditate with you.

I extend a deep gratitude to the Vijnana Kala Vedi School of Traditional Indian Arts where I did my first studies in yoga in a course sponsored by UNESCO in 2004. Likewise, to the spirit of T.K.V. Desikachar, son of the legendary T. Krishnamacharya, with whom I had the honor of learning the roots of yoga as an ancient meditation practice when he was alive.

Also, my infinite love to the Yogendra family of The Yoga Institute India, the oldest yoga school in the world. With them I studied, worked, and spent one of the most beautiful and important times of my life. Their never-ending support, especially when I was seriously ill in the hospital because of my follies traveling through deep India, will be eternally kept in my heart.
