There are many traditions of Yoga teaching that are popular in the world today. Many of them trace their origins to one man, the legendary T Krishnamacharya. Whether it is the classical aligment method of Sri BKS Iyengar, or the vinyasa style of Sri Pattabhi Jois or the gentle spiritual approach of Mataji Indra Devi, or the individualized approach of Sri TKV Desikachar, they all owe their Yoga education to this south Indian brahmin who revolutionized Yoga in the 1900’s and revived this ancient art.
TKV Desikachar, son and longest standing student of Krishnamacharya, continued to carry this tradition into the 21st century. He has been instrumental in building bridges between Yoga and other healing modalities, inspiring thousands.
