Viniyoga, or what is also known as “Yoga for Wellness”, originated from the principles practiced by Sri. T. Krishnamacharya - that is, to develop practices for individual conditions and purposes. Sri. T. Krishnamacharya is the teacher of well-known contemporary masters B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and Indra Devi. His son, T.K.V. Desikachar, has continued this principle and developed the practice of Viniyoga.

Viniyoga makes use of modified yoga poses that are designed to meet the specific needs of an individual, and to enhance healing, flexibility and strength of joints. Viniyoga poses are also intended to promote a feeling of well-being and strength. Practices may also include Pranayama, meditation, reflection, study and other classic elements, but the emphasis of Viniyoga practice is on coordinating breath and movement. Personal practices are taught privately.
