ABOUT LAKSHMI VOELKER (FOUNDER AND CREATOR OF LVCY)
Who is Lakshmi Voelker (LV)?
Lakshmi Voelker-Binder has dedicated her life to creating accessible paths to wellness. By creating chair yoga, she was able bring adaptive fitness and exercise programs to those who could not benefit from traditional methods of physical activity due to age or limiting physical condition.
She created Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga™ in 1982 when one of her thirty-something students was stricken with arthritis and could no longer get down on the floor to practice Yoga.
She has studied, practiced, and taught Yoga and other Eastern disciplines since 1969. From her early years, she integrated these disciplines with Western health concepts. Her focus has always been to improve her students' health and wellness by making the integration of these disciplines accessible to the broadest audience possible.
