“I am passionate about sharing with others how the “self care system of yoga” can be used to support and improve our day to day lives.
My goal as a teacher is to inspire and empower people to take responsibility for their health and happiness and have fun doing it!
I really enjoy supporting students in taking those “first small steps” towards new, more positive habits, that in turn can lead to powerful personal transformation.”
– Len Gillespie
The viniyoga approach to teaching yoga
The term viniyoga has been used by T.K.V. Desikachar (son of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya) to describe his approach to utilizing the tools of yoga, in particular his conviction that yoga practice should be adapted to fit the individuality and particular situation of each practitioner.
Our teachers have trained extensively with this approach as the primary focus and teach in the lineage of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.
“Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other”.
Yoga should always be adapted to the needs, circumstances and goals of each individual, never the individual to fit the yoga.
