Yoga Tradition

Abby's teaching is dedicated to the teachings of Krishnamacharya as taught to his son TKV Desikachar. Krishnamacharya's legacy incudes his firm belief that anyone can do yoga. His mission was to bring the promise of yoga and its healing potential to everyone who wished to receive it, disregarding age, health, economic status, and religious belief.

TKV Desikachar studied with his father for three decades. in 1976 he created the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM), a non-profit healing center in Chennai, India, to honor his father and share his teachings. More recently, with his son Kausthub, he founded the Krishnamacharya Healing Yoga Foundation (KHYF). The KHYF is the organization representing the holistic yoga tradition of Krishnamacharya, and supports teachers, trainers, and therapists in the lineage.

Abby's classes emphasize adapting practices to the individual and meeting the student where they are.There is a conscious integration of the breath with the body, and with the merging of body and breath, there is a quieting of the mind.
