Baptiste Yoga™

Baptiste Yoga™ was founded in the 1940′s by Walt Baptiste and remains accessible to anyone today who is looking for personal transformation. Much of the physical aspects of the Baptiste Yoga™ style are inspired by the Hatha Yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age.

The Baptiste Yoga™ practice and programs are designed to empower you with the focus, training and insight you need to achieve consistent profound results in the most important areas of your life.
