Jean Klein


Jean Klein, musicologist and medical doctor from Central Europe, spent many years in India, studying Advaita and Yoga. Since 1960 he has been teaching, first mainly in Europe and since 1980 both in Europe and the United States. He passes away on February 22th, 1998 in Santa Barbara.

The teachings of Jean Klein belong to the "direct way". In this respect Jean Klein is on a par with teachers like Ramana Maharshi, Atmananda Krishna Menon and Nisargadatta Maharaj. A distinction between Jean Klein and these teachers is that Jean Klein was a practitioner of yoga-bodywork and he transmitted this art to those who were interested. The kind of bodywork as transmitted by Jean Klein originates from Kashmir and therefore may be called "Kashmiryoga".
