Everything you ever wanted to know about the what, why & how of meditation

Yoga Well Institute

The Yoga Well Institute is dedicated to authentic Yoga, meditation, and lifestyle teachings from the Viniyoga lineage of Mr. TKV Desikachar. Yoga philosophy studies form the foundation for our teachings, especially Patañjali’s Yogasūtra, Bhagavad Gītā, and Haṭha Yoga Pradīpika. Our offerings explore the breadth and depth of Viniyoga from texts to practices to therapeutics and beyond. We are dedicated to providing a safe, supportive and caring Yoga community where people come out of suffering, experience sustainable transformation, and live a purposeful and satisfying life.

Vibrant Health

Yoga is often associated with physical health, however, your overall wellbeing involves much more than just the body.

Mental Wellness

Yoga allows a presence of mind that gives us greater capacity to choose experiences that support how we want to feel.

Balanced Living

Yoga is a state of being in which the entire mind-body system is in balance. Encouraging this state is what we call “practice.”


I have been a student at Yoga Well for many years and wouldn’t want to take classes anywhere else. Chase Bossart is a scholar and a long time, devoted student of TKV Desikachar. The teachers there are some of the best in the country.

Yoga Well is the real deal. They do a great job of meeting people where they are, not telling them where they “should” be. The teachings are ancient, but the application is very much for today’s world. They’ve been a tremendous help to me.

Authentic. Accessible. Credible. There are fewer and fewer places that teach “traditional” yoga applications. For those open to gaining skills that help balance your life and improve overall health, Yoga Well is the right place.
