Yoga Therapy explained
Barbara Brian has been a student of yoga for over 35 years and a longstanding student of TKV Desikachar.
She is the Founder and Director of the Āgamā Yoga Centre for Health and Healing. Established in 1989 at our Middle Park location. Over the years our centre has provided group and individual teaching and Yoga training. Since 1993 Āgamā has been providing these services within the tradition of T Krishnamacharya.
Barbara is a consultant in this methodology of adapting yoga tools and techniques to suit individual needs
She teaches private and group therapeutic classes; trains and mentors yoga teachers and therapists; and conducts postgraduate studies.
Private yoga therapy consultations at Āgamā Yoga Centre have evolved from our ‘parent’ Yoga Therapy Centre in Chennai (KYM).
All of Āgamā’s Therapists do Internships in Clinic-like conditions under Consultants at both Agama Yoga Centre and KYM in this ancient tradition of one-to-one student-teacher relationship.
How to book a Yoga Therapy session
One-on-one tuition is highly recommended for anyone wishing to go beyond the possibilities offered in group classes. Ancient masters tailored practices for their students, by respecting their strengths, honouring their abilities, and addressing their needs.
This empowers you as students of yoga to develop step by step at your own pace, knowing that you are doing something useful for your overall health everyday.

*Āgamā has many Yoga Therapists available for consultations, Barbara will ensure the appropriate consultant is matched to the yoga therapy client.
Who can benefit from Yoga Therapy
People who are recovering from injury or trauma seek yoga to assist in the recovery process. At another level, students receive one-on-one tuition to develop a deeper understanding of themselves, seeking a better quality of life and the opportunity to excel in what they do.
Barbara offers care, direction and gives healing practices based on knowledge about each person’s unique starting point. Her approach is to provide therapy and practices that over time, gift the yoga practitioner a sense of independence “I CAN do this for myself”.
