Viniyoga is a sort of soft and at the same time dynamic yoga, a modernized classical yoga developed by Sri Krishnamacharya, the master of all masters (Iyengar, Pattabhi Joys etc.) who believed that
* Yoga postures had to adapt to the person who practises (not the person to yoga postures)
* Traditional yoga could not meet the needs of the the modern world and Western society without adjustments ..
The teachings of Viniyoga was spread in the Western world by transmission from teacher to student.
