Viniyoga = Appropriate Application

Abby's teaching honors the lineage of Krishnamacharya as it was transmitted through his son, TKV Desikachar. Krishnamacharya's legacy includes a firm belief that anyone can do yoga, that it's healing potential should be available to to everyone who wished to receive it, disregarding age, health, economic status, and religious belief.

Abby is a certified as an Viniyoga instructor and therapist by Gary Kraftsow and the American Viniyoga Institute. Gary began his studies with TKV Desikachar in 1974 and has exclusively studied the yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya.

Viniyoga is characterized by conscious breathing, linking of the breath to movements of the spine, repetition of movement, intelligent and safe sequencing, and adaptations that emphasize function over form.

Viniyoga means appropriate application. As an experienced and trained instructor in the Viniyoga tradition, Abby employs the relevant tools to meet the needs of individuals in class on any given day.
