Vinyasa Krama Yoga
"I found for the first time a complete view of Yoga. In this six-week experience you can discover the nature of your mind, the whole of asana - not just the limited view of the West. It is the first time I felt close to Yoga." —Roxana Letechipia Jolly, Former Student

Refered to as the father of modern Yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888–1989) was an Indian yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer and scholar, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential teachers of the 20th Century. Many of today’s best-known yoga teachers, including B. K. S. Iyengar, T. K. V. Desikachar and Pattabhi Jois, studied with him and modeled their own yoga styles after his practice and teaching. 

Srivatsa Ramaswami, Krishnamacharya’s longest-standing student outside his own family, presents his master’s teachings of yogasanas in two programs: the Vinyasa Krama Yoga professional certificate program and 200-hour teacher training. The teacher training program fulfills the prerequisite for the Master of Arts in Yoga Studies, the certificate program does not.

Certificate Program.  A comprehensive and in-depth grounding to traditional Yoga as learned from Krishnamacharya.

200-hour Teacher Training.  A Yoga Alliance®-registered training for those interested becoming teachers in the tradition of Krishnamacharya. The complete Vinyasa Krama series, the entire range of sequences, numbering about 700 with important pranayama, chanting and meditation methods taught by Krishnamacharya, will be studied.
