Krishna Venkatesh

Krishna began his yoga journey in 2008 after unbearable pain from a back injury led him to
an Iyengar Yoga Restorative class. After several weeks of learning to move mindfully and therapeutically under careful supervision, his love affair with yoga began. Always seeking, he continued with the Iyengar practice, while also exploring Ashtanga and several other approaches. His search led him to Charlotte Chandler Stone, CYT, E-RYT500, the founder and director of the Stone Center for Yoga & Health in Teaneck, NJ, where he immersed himself in the study of Stone Yoga, a therapeutic and highly adaptive yoga style accredited by the national Yoga Alliance, that helped him heal his back and see yoga – and life – in a new light. It is there that he found a wonderful community of teachers and students, and a method that united many of the layers of yoga he had previously explored. Krishna successfully completed the Stone Yoga Teacher Training, and is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor. He also holds CPR/AED certification by the American Heart Association. With a focus on precise yet adaptive alignment, pranayama, and above all, safety, Krishna is passionate about sharing what he learned, though he believes his students "teach him" much more than the reverse. His sense of humor and playfulness act as a counterbalance to how seriously he takes his commitment to clear,
concise instruction.

A professional composer and musician for almost 26 years, music has taken him all over the country and across the Atlantic several times. He has had the good fortune of working with many well known artists such as Herbie Hancock, Joe Strummer of The Clash, and the Blue Man Group, just to name a few. Krishna composed the music for the popular yoga documentary feature film "ENLIGHTEN UP - A Skeptic’s Journey into the World of Yoga," which toured movie theaters nationally and is available at both AMAZON and NETFLIX. Krishna is eternally grateful to his teachers: Charlotte Chandler Stone, Colleen Briscoe, Bridget D'Arco, Sri Arun, Sharon Fruchtman-Laffey, and Tara Steccato.
