Vanda Scaravelli knew Jiddu Krishnamurti early in her life through her father. After Vanda’s husband, Luigi died, shortly after World War II she was introduced to BKS Iyengar by the violinist Yehudi Menuhin. BKS Iyengar taught daily classes to Jiddu Krishnamurti, and it wasn’t long after that Vanda Scaravelli took up yoga in her late 40s.
Some years later, Krishnamurti invited Desikachar to the Scaravelli’s Chalet Tannegg in Gstaad, where he taught them about the importance of the breath (pranayama), which became one of the principle themes in Vanda Scaravelli’s teaching. After this, Vanda Scaravelli continued to study with Iyengar and Desikachar for some years as she developed her approach towards the breath, gravity and the spine.
