Conceived by Dario Calvaruso, blending his extensive studies in Yoga, Āyurveda, and traditional arts across Asia. 

Rooted in the guru-śiṣya paraṃparām, Dario's journey from the Himalayas to Tamil Nadu and beyond shaped the Navakaraṇa Method, combining Karaṇas, Bharataṇāṭyam, and Yoga Darśana into a holistic approach for self-discovery, healing, and transformation. 

With a rich background in diverse traditions, Dario introduces traditional Sui-Zen from Japan into Navakaraṇa, incorporating zen melodies for sound-meditation practices, and establishes Navakaraṇa Kyorei in Yakushima, Japan, as a gurukulam and āśrama for self-transformation and organic living.
