The Yoga School NY is an Educational Initiative located in NYC. We are offering Holistic Traditional and Therapeutic Yoga Teachings in the Lineage of T. Krishnamacharya, the ‘Grandfather of Modern Yoga,' such as Yoga Teacher Trainings, Group Classes, One-on-One Therapeutic Classes and Workshops. Our teachings are informed by our direct and continuous studies in this tradition with TKV Desikachar, son of Krishnamacharya and founder of the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM.org) in Chennai, South India, and other long term practitioners/teachers in this tradition, such as Sonia Nelson, director of the Vedic Chant Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Guta Hedewig is the founder and director of TYSNY. She is a Certified Yoga Therapist and Yoga Teacher in the Krishnamacharya Tradition, as well as a Yoga Alliance registered E-RYT 500.
"Yoga approaches the individual from the inside.
Yet each individual is not simply a mind, but a system.
Actually, each of us is a conglomeration of a vast system.
This system is more than my body, which is nourished by food.
It is more than my breath, more than my relationships, more than my faith.
Any influence upon one aspect of the system will affect every other aspect.
What we experience in yoga is a conscious influence and change in the overall system.
We may choose to begin with the body, the breath, our food, or our relationships.
Whatever the point of beginning, we change the totality of the system.
It is impossible to overstate the possibilities of this gradual approach to well-being in our lives."
