Founder of Vinieyoga Healing Centre and Chief Consultant at Vinieyoga Academy

Lara Abhiesheik was trained in the tradition of Sri T. Krishnamacharya’s Viniyoga by none other than Sri Desikachar at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) in Chennai, India. Over a decade before he approached Sri Desikachar, Lara spent time mastering haha yoga techniques, which gave him the impetus to further understand the layered aspects of viniyoga and vinyasa krama. Within a short span of time, his mastery over complicated asanas made him a perfect model for books published by KYM.

Guided by a deep understanding of alignment of the body, breath and mind he mastered highly advanced asana and pranayama techniques. He specializes in course planning principles, unique to the Krishnamacharya yoga tradition. He went on to learn 'nadi pariksha' (disease diagnosis) and applied his vast knowledge of function-based asanas in yoga therapy. He has used other healing methods like 'thodu varmam' along with yoga therapy to meet the needs of over 10,000 seekers (and counting). He has designed several specialized Teacher Training Courses, including ones for Yoga Therapy, for Pain Management, for Women, and Sleep Disorders.

Since 2014, Lara sir has been mentoring an expertly trained team of yoga teachers and therapists through VHC, an authentic centre for yoga training and yoga therapy that follows the Sri Krishnamacharya yoga tradition.
