What style of yoga?

TKV DesikacharOur approach to Yoga is based on the world-renowned teachings from the tradition and lineage of T Krishnamacharya (widely known as the ‘father of modern yoga’) and his son TKV Desikachar (pictured).

We focus on integrating all aspects of yogic practice including asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudras, philosophy and psychology, and adapting practices to the individual.

We emphasise applying the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga to the challenges of modern lives.

As Krishnamacharya said: “Yoga must be made to suit the individual, not the individual to suit the yoga.”
