American Viniyoga Institute Yoga Teacher & Yoga Therapist Training Programs

Yoga Styles: 


The American Viniyoga Institute, under the leadership of Gary Kraftsow, offers authentic and ancient teachings for personal practice as well as aspiring teachers and yoga therapists.

The Viniyoga lineage is an approach to yoga that adapts practice to the unique conditions, needs and interests of individuals and groups giving practitioners, teachers and yoga therapists the tools to individualize and actualize the process of self-discovery, personal transformation and healing.

The 200/300/500-hour Viniyoga Foundations Program for Teaching & Yoga Therapy is a comprehensive immersion in Viniyoga methodology for personal development, teaching safe and effective group and private yoga classes and to prepare to enter the Viniyoga Therapist training. Develop confidence in your ability to transmit Viniyoga teachings on asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting and yoga philosophy.  

The next Viniyoga Foundations Program starts again in April 2018.

The Viniyoga Therapist training prepares yoga teachers and health professionals who have completed the Viniyoga Foundations Program to work with individuals with structural, physiological and emotional conditions, and focuses on the development of clinical skills in yoga therapy for work with individuals and groups.  Your study begin in the Viniyoga Foundations Program.
