Antonio (Director)

Antonio Bosque De Pinos has more than 20 years' experience in classical meditation, ancient yoga and eastern philosophy. For many years he lived, studied and worked in India, a country he visited for the first time in 2004 when he entered the ancient practices of yoga and meditation.

At that time he studied classical-ancestral yoga in Tamil Nadu with T.K.V. Desikachar (son of the legendary T. Krishnamacharya), and traditional Hatha Yoga at the Vijnana Kala Vedi School of Traditional Indian Arts in Kerala, in a program sponsored by UNESCO.

In 2011 he moved to the city of Mumbai to study classical philosophy of yoga at The Yoga Institute, the oldest yoga school in the world, where he later worked as a teacher and coordinator of international academic programs. There he lived for many years with the Yogendra Family, founding lineage of The Yoga Institute, whose origins go back to the sage Sri Madhavadasji of 1798.

In 2014 he began a journey through the states of Punjab, Kashmir and Uttarakhand in northern India to investigate about ancient meditation techniques in mountains and deserts between the Indian-Pakistan border.

His last years in Asia took him to Nepal, where he delved into ancestral meditative practices of remote villages in the Himalayas. Also from Nepal he went on photographic trips to Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Later, the twists of life took Antonio to work for a few months at the Costa Rican Embassy in New Delhi, only to discover that that was simply not his place, and finally settles in Costa Rica in 2017


“I'm passionate about writing, the culture of India, photography, the pine forests and elephants. Living is a fascinating adventure that leads us to another that in my opinion is even more so: the adventure of the journey after death. I thank from the depths of my heart the Yogendra Family of The Yoga Institute in Mumbai for giving me wisdom to embrace them both. I also thank them for times full of evolution, and for having helped me at all times to travel India from its depths, as I always dreamed.” – Antonio.
