Viniyoga Yoga Directory

Gary Kraftsow founded the American Viniyoga Institute in 1999. His main teacher for the past 40 years has been T.K.V Desikachar. Viniyoga is tailored to the individual’s needs and physical condition. Classes emphasize mobilizing the spine and coordinating each movement with breath. Viniyoga teaches students how to begin the process of self-discovery and personal transformation.


This 200-hour program is offered over multiple weekends in the Los Angeles area beginning in late January. Inspired by the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya, an individualized approach to each student is at the heart of this training. During your time with us, you will learn how to teach or deepen your own practice in many different forms of hatha yoga. Rather than mold you into our style, we believe it is important to support you in discovering your own unique style and path in your yoga journey.
