Viniyoga Therapy

In the classical Viniyoga® tradition, Yoga Therapy is practised with the following orientation:

  • As a self-empowering process, where the Care Seeker is responsible for his/her healing process
  • In an individualized, one-to-one setting
  • As multi-dimensional in its approach, often utilizing many tools of Yoga
  • As a process focused on the individual, not just the illness
  • As a context-sensitive method, respecting the age, occupation, ability and other parameters of the individual
  • As an evolving process, not an instant solution
  • As a personal and spiritual development path, a process for developing one’s own unique potentials
  • As a collaborative and complementary system of self-health care
Course Outline

Following the holistic and classical teachings of Professor Sri T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar, this extensive training will:

  • Present the most important principles of Viniyoga Therapy as a self-empowering, holistic and complementary system of health
  • Provide comprehensive training in the understanding and application of the vast array of tools that Viniyoga offers, to address a wide range of health concerns in a holistic manner
  • Help the trainee understand and learn how to implement the one-to-one approach to healing of Viniyoga
  • Explore the role of Viniyoga in developing and supporting a wellness-oriented lifestyle
  • Educate on professional and ethical standards under which Viniyoga Therapy must be practiced
  • Assist in providing a safe environment to facilitate the trainees in the often challenging journey of  personal and spiritual development, as well as the evolution of their own unique strengths as healers
