Program Description

Wednesdays, April 12, 19, 26 from 6–9 p.m.

Join Gary Kraftsow, named by Yoga Journal as a Lifetime Contributor and “One of America’s Leading Yoga Therapists”, as he demonstrates the Viniyoga Therapist approach to managing structural, physiological, and psycho-emotional conditions

A skilled Yoga Therapist accesses client conditions at multiple levels by: 

  • understanding client limitations, 
  • developing multi-dimensional practices calibrated to individual needs, and
  • inspiring clients to practice. 

In the structural segment, we will explore practices to work with common structural conditions related to the back, hips, neck, and shoulders. In the physiological segment, we will explore practices to manage the symptoms of sleeplessness and pain that accompany many conditions. In the psychological segment, we will explore practices to manage symptoms of anxiety, reframe our life orientation, and find sources of happiness and inspiration. 

Don’t miss this comprehensive workshop for fresh insights into working with modern conditions drawn from the ancient lineage of Yoga Therapy. 

“Yoga therapy treats the whole person, seeking to change attitudes and actions that inhibit the natural healing process, and cultivate attitudes and actions that support it.” Gary Kraftsow, MA, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT 

Founder and Director of the American Viniyoga Institute
