Course Background

The viniyoga of Yoga Introductory Study Course evolved from Paul Harvey's many years of personal lessons with his teacher TKV Desikachar. The Introductory Course reflects the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his teacher the eminent T Krishnamacharaya as taught to Paul over 25 years.

It respects and acknowledges both the spirit of his teaching and the inspiration and message of his father and teacher that Yoga is taught in a way appropriate for each person and their situation.

With this intention in mind and heart this Course is offered with due regard for both the vital source from which those Yoga teachings originated and their place and relevance in our age and culture.
