20: Yoga Therapy & Tantra with Gary Kraftsow
On this episode, I speak with yoga therapy pioneer Gary Kraftsow. Gary has been instrumental in the development of yoga therapy in America over the past 40 years.
He began his study of yoga in India with T.K.V. Desikachar in 1974 and received his Masters Degree in Psychology and Religion from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1983. In 1999, he founded the American Viniyoga Institute. Since then, he has become a renowned speaker and teacher and has authored two books that I highly recommend, Yoga for Wellness and Yoga for Transformation.
