“The only authentic yoga is the one that works for each person according to circumstances and need, and there are many possibilities.”
– T.K.V. Desikachar
The use of yoga for therapeutic practice is an old tradition. The most well known and respected of the modern yogis to practice this style of yoga is B.K.S. Iyengar. Out of his teachings and those of T.K.V. Desikachar, we have what is now known as adaptive and therapeutic yoga. Inner Therapies Yoga at Evolve Yoga and Wellness will offer several classes that focus on a non-traditional approach to yoga. We use props, chairs, and the yoga wall to make traditional postures accessible to those with injuries, illnesses, physical limitations and structural or emotional imbalances.
