About This Workshop
In this event, wellness expert Kim Weeks and Gary Kraftsow, Founder and Director of the American Viniyoga Institute, explore the origins, evolution, and modern-day story of the lineage of Viniyoga: a comprehensive and authentic transmission of the teachings of yoga including asana, pranayama, bandha, sound, chanting, meditation, personal ritual, and study of texts. Viniyoga (prefixes vi and ni plus yoga) is an ancient Sanskrit term that implies differentiation, adaptation, and appropriate application.
Yoga continues to evolve to include deeply varied styles and types of practice, all rooted in a shared ancient history. Yoga Lineages is a series of conversations that explores seven of today’s most widely recognized yoga lineages, revealing what is unique about these practices. Whether you’re seeking peace of mind, strength in body, or are simply interested in finding a more mindful way of living, yoga can help and is a practice for all.
