Study with Master Yoga Therapists in Chennai, India
Many students dream of going the source of Yoga in India to study under living Yoga Masters. For 6 weeks, you will have the opportunity to study directly with DV Sridhar, Radha Sridhar, and Viji Vasu from the Desikachar-Krishnamacharya lineage with whom Maggie Reagh has been studying regularly since 2001. These are Master Teachers, who studied directly under TKV Desikachar (Sri T. Krishnamacharya's son) for over 12 years, and are therefore, well-known and respected by all senior teachers in our lineage today such as Gary Kraftsow, Larry Payne, Kate Holcombe, and Chase Bossart. DV Sridhar, in fact, completed his tenure at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) as Director of Yoga Studies, which was his role when Maggie met him in 2001.
Maggie will assist you in finding an accommodation close to Yoga Raksanam while you are in Chennai. You may choose to find other more suitable accommodations yourself. Prices range from $25-50 CAN per day for single or double accommodations where this price can be shared. In 2015, we found the Raj Grand Days our best option, a 10 minute walk from school. We have moved the India trip to January- February to avoid the monsoon season.
