Bio

Professional yogi aspirant and myoskeletal soft tissue manual therapist Jñānam Jason has an unwavering love for integrity and linguistic identity. He is drawn to the profession of musculoskeletal rehabilitation, due to his own personal experience of self-recovery from chronic traumatic pain, injury and anxiety. He works with a powerful exercise modality called Vinyāsa Krama (विन्यासक्रम), which follows the tradition of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya as transmitted by his son TKV Desikachar. His svadharma incorporates the philosophy of secular humanism and the science of life.

Tasya bhūmiṣu viniyogaḥ (Patañjali Yoga Sūtra 3.6) – “Teach according to the strength, the resources and the weakness of the individual”

According to the teachings transmitted by TKV Desikachar, the authentic teaching of Yoga is not the delivery a style but an observation of the environmental and emotional challenges that the student confronts regularly, in relation to individual predisposition and agility to change and/or adapt, on purpose.

Committing to the rigour of a daily Yoga practice becomes a way of tuning into yourself to observe the quality of your relationships in the given moment. You will bring spaciousness to your own inexhaustible pool of individual creativity and ambition by accepting the humility and honour of your humanity, in all mundane conditions.

In the tradition of Indian Ayurveda, disease and disorders come about through the kleśaḥ (afflictions) of ignorance (avidya), attachment (rāga), aversion (dveśa), and fear (abhiniveśa), which affect the balance of the Tattvic (cosmic) alchemical phases, flowing from spirit to Air, to Fire, to Water, to Earth. The biological intermediaries of the five Tattvas are the three doṣaḥ – corresponding to three humours, wind (vāta), bile (pitta), phelgm (kapha) – which coordinate the energetics of the body and mind. Traditional therapeutic methods are focussed on correcting the alignment of the energetics of the body and mind, so that they can heal themselves naturally.
