About this Presenter: 

Laura and Patricia have a combined 40 year experience practicing and studying yoga.  They both completed 500HR of intensive yoga studies under the tutelage of Gary Kraftsow, founder of the America Viniyoga Institute.  Our training comes from the knowledge passed down from Nathamuni's lineage to Sri T. Krishnamacharya; from Krishnamacharya to Desikachar; and from Desikachar to Gary Kraftsow.  

Krishnamacarya was an Indian yoga teacher, Ayurvedic healer and Scholar.  Often referred to as "the father of modern yoga, and he is  is widely regarded as one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century.   Krishnamacharya passed this knowledge directly to his many students including his son Desikachar.   Desikachar later became Gary Kraftsow's teacher sharing this lineage with him.  Both Laura and Patricia have been initiated in this sacred lineage by Gary.

We feel honored to be able to pass down undiluted information from our teacher to our students.   We provide a solid foundation in our Registered Yoga Alliance School to begin the deep study of the yoga tradition.
