Yoga Therapist Teaches Vedic Chanting and Yoga at Temenos Center
Yoga therapist Linda Cope now offers individual yoga therapy sessions and group yoga classes at Temenos Center, in Moorestown. In addition, she teaches Vedic chanting, sutra chanting and meditation. Her Wednesday morning Vedic chanting class and an afternoon group yoga class begin in March.
As a student of Dr. Bishambhar Sharan, a retired professor of education for Benares Hindu University, Cope was introduced to asana, pranayama and meditation, particularly emphasizing one’s relationship to others and oneself, known as yama and niyama. Through her mentor, Dolphi Wertenbaker, M.D., she met T.K.V. Desikachar and studied therapeutic yoga in India at his clinic in Chennai. There, she observed that teachers used yoga as a complementary modality, designing unique practices and treating each person according to their individuality and wholeness. After completing four years as a student of Krishnamacharya Healing Yoga Foundation (KHYF) and two month-long internships at Desikachar’s clinic, Cope was certified as a yoga teacher and therapist.
