The Yoga of The Yogi: The Legacy of T. Krishnamacharya

 
Kausthub Desikachar (Author)
Synopsis

The yoga of the Yogi is a tribute to one of the greatest yogis of the modern era: Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, known as a “master of master.” In the early twentieth century, when India’s traditional teachings were in danger of being lost, Krishnamacharya revived the ancient practice of yoga for the modern world. He was a yogi par excellence, a dedicated healer, a ferocious debater, a master of Indian philosophy, and a talented poet and author. As a teacher, he as unsurpassed. The names of his most famous students-Indra Devi, Pattabi Jois, B.K.S. Iyengar, and T.K.V. Desikachar are today known all over the world. Yet the full promise of Krishnamacharya’s legacy unfamiliar to many in the west, is still waiting to be explored.

In The Yoga of the Yogi, Krishnamacharya’s grandson, Kausthub Desikachar, provides unique insight into the life of Krishnamacharya. He show us that yoga as Krishnamacharya approached it, is much more than asana, or physical postures, and in fact offers a wide range of tools for healing the entire human system in a compassionate and holistic way. He explores Krishnamacharya’s emphatic belief that there is no “one size fits all” Yoga, and how practice can and must be adapted to serve the changing needs of each individual students. And he includes photographs and archival materials, many from the personal collections of Krishnamcharya’s family.
