Welcome to The Society of Yoga Practitioners (TSYP). We provide yoga tuition and therapy, following the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya and T.K.V. Desikachar.
TYSP is primarily a training organisation for Yoga teachers, Yoga therapy, post-graduate studies and Vedic chanting, as well as providing opportunities for continuing professional development (CPD) and developing a like-minded community to bring these threads together.
TSYP is an autonomous organisation based in the UK, which follows the inspirational vision of Krishnamacharya and his son, TKV Desikachar, who sought to make yoga relevant to the demands of modern life. Living links with their teachings are maintained through our relationship with the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India, which was founded by TKV Desikachar to honour his father and now continues his legacy as well that of his most remarkable father.
Our teacher trainers were all personally appointed by TKV Desikachar and our senior teachers all studied directly with him. This contact will ensure that his work & that of his father continues well into the 21st century.
Our teachers recognise the uniqueness of each individual and tailor practices accordingly. They are actively mentored to support their personal and professional development in yoga. Continuing professional development (CPD) is a requirement in order to remain a teaching member.
