What is Viniyoga?

This is a question I am frequently asked, particularly by new yoga students and beginners. On my flyers and websites I describe it as “A gentle form of Yoga using postures to support and develop the breath. It is a meditative approach, suitable for all abilities.” but that really doesn’t do it justice. Viniyoga is the legacy of the great teacher Krishnamacharya and his son Desikachar who carried on his father’s teachings and founded the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandarim in Chenna

I live in the heart of St Davids, Pembrokshire, and have been practising and studying Yoga for more than 19 years. I'm a fully qualified teacher having completed the Sadhana Mala Vinyoga Teacher Training Courses, run by Dave Charlton and Ranju Roy. I was a student of Yvonne Summons for more than 10 years and I am so grateful for the guidance all my teachers have given me. 

As a member of the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY), the governing body for Yoga in the UK, I am fully insured.

I only ever have a maximum of 10 students in my classes so that I can give plenty of 1:1 support, adjust students accordingly and offer suitable modifications.
