About the Book

Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era. Elements of Krishnamacharya’s teaching have become well known around the world through the work of B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and Indra Devi, who all studied with Krishnamacharya in their early years. Krishnamacharya’s son T.K.V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father all his life and now teaches the full spectrum of Krishmanacharya’s yoga. Desikachar has based his method on Krishnamacharya’s Fundamental teaching, which maintains that practices must be continually adapted to the individual’s changing needs to achieve the maximum therapeutic value.

In The Heart of Yoga Desikachar offers a distillation of his father’s system as well as his own practical approach, which he describes as “a program for the spine at every level-physical, mental, and spiritual. “ This is the first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to the age-old principles of yoga. Desikachar discusses all the elements of yoga-poses and counter poses, conscious breathing, meditation, and philosophy-and shows how the yoga student may develop a practice tailored to his or her current state of health, age, occupation, and Lifestyle, Krishnamacharya placed the highest value on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, which is included here in its entirety, with a translation and commentary by Desikachar Added to this second eiton of The Heart of yoga the Yoganjalisaram-thirty-two Poems composed by Krishnamacharya that capture the essence of his teachings and futher make the Heart of Yoga a milestone in the transmission of yoga from the ancient masters of the modern world.

A structural engineer by training, T.K.V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father until Krishnamacharya’s death in 1989. He has devoted his life to yoga instruction for people of all backgrounds and all levels of ability, and currently teaches at the school founded in his father’s memory in Madras, as well as in Europe, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand.
