Yoga Therapy Lineage
The Yoga Therapists at EMB completed their Yoga Therapy training at Yoga Therapy Toronto, a school certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists. The following quote was taken from their website with their permission to identify the lineage and source of teaching:
“Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya was regarded as the grandfather of modern yoga. In addition to being a yogi, he was also a well known healer, linguist, musician, researcher, author and expert scholar in the six Indian Schools of Vedic Philosophy. He was a true pioneer in his ability to translate ancient teachings and make them relevant in a modern context.”
As a teacher his principle was “Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other.” He taught that yoga should always be adapted to the unique needs, circumstances and goals of each individual. In refusing to standardize the practice and teaching methodology, he demonstrated a deep understanding of yoga relevant for all students.
During the one hundred years of his life (1888-1989), he inspired thousands of practitioners worldwide and today his teachings have become very popular through his many students – notably his son TKV Desikachar, Indra Devi, BKS Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois.”
