Gary Kraftsow founded the American Viniyoga Institute in 1999. His main teacher for the past 30 years is T.K.V Disikachar. Viniyoga is a useful therapeutic tool for the body but aims to help facilitate self awareness to reduce internal suffering. Viniyoga is tailored to individual’s needs and physical condition. The classes can vary greatly in length and specific content. All Viniyoga classes emphasize mobilizing the spine and coordinating each movement with breath. The practice is relatively gentle and fluid. Viniyoga gives students access to begin the process of self-discovery and personal transformation.
