What is Desikachar Yoga? 




Son of yoga legend Sri T. Krishnamacharya, T.K.V. Desikachar studied with his father for almost 30 years. His approach, sometimes called Desikachar Yoga, sometimes called Viniyoga, is based on evolving yoga poses, routines and techniques to match the needs of the student - to maximum therapeutic benefit.












Desikachar Yoga is a type of yoga that is highly individualised in it’s approach. The practice is tailored to each student's specific emotional state, physical condition, age, background, interests and aims.
