Yogatherapy is rooted in a millenial oral tradition crafted, refined and transmitted by T. Krishnamacharya. It consists in numerous techniques and principles, which pave the way to physical and mental wellbeing.

Yogatherapy is a holistic approach, whose rich tools allow to engage with all dimensions of being : the practice of adapted postures to restore physical health, breathing techniques (pranayama) to soothe the mind, and mantras to touch the heart.

Hatha-yoga, an ancestral yoga practice, has become so popular through the Yoga-Sutrâ of Patanjali2 and through the Sanskrit text of Svātmārāma, the Hatha-yoga Pradipikâ3.

Viniyoga, or Yoga of Madras, corresponding to Shri T. Krishnamacharya yoga, encoded by his son T.K.V. Desikacharhas started to be known under this name in the 80’s. It is based on the idea that yoga should be adapted to the individual, taking his wishes, his capacities, his health state, his environment, his life style and his available time into consideration. This soft, progressive yoga is at the origin of the comeback of Hatha-Yoga.
