Acharya T.Krishnamacharya & TKV Desikachar
"Viniyoga is the appropriate adaption of Yoga’s holistic tools such as Asana-s, Pranayama, chanting, prayers and rituals to meet the needs of the individuals respecting differences in age, culture, religion, philosophy, occupation, physical, emotional and other health parameters that define each practitioner.”
It is indeed my great privilege to share my experience doing the “Sri Sakti” Chanting Retreat at your esteemed institute in January 2016. It was my first experience with chanting and I consider it a great honour that we were led under the expert guidance of Maneka Desikachar whose powerful voice, precise intonation and cheerful disposition made it the most enjoyable learning experience indeed. Kausthubji’s sessions were very illuminating with his trademark humour and his wealth of knowledge. The staff too deserve a special mention for their friendliness and support. I would certainly recommend the institute and its courses to authentic seekers of yoga.

Menaka is very kind, careful and focused toward her students. She teaches with patience and generosity. She encourages self-confidence and self-empowerment. As a student, I feel respected and I feel I can do mistake without any judgment nor any stress. Beyond the computer and the chanting, a heart-to-heart relationship is setting.
