Information

The Yoga of the Yogi is a tribute to one of the greatest yogis of the modern era, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, know to yoga students everywhere as a 'master of masters'. In the early twentieth century when India's traditional teachings were in danger of being lost, Krishnamacharya revived the ancient tradition of yoga for the modern world. The was a yoga par excellence, a dedicated healer, a ferocious debater, a master of Indian philosophy, and a talented poet and author.  Little has been written about his life or his work, but the names of his most famous students:  Indra Devi,  Patthabi Jois, BKS Iyengar, and TKV Deiskachar - are known all over the world.  Yet, the full promise of KRishnamacharya's legacy, unfamiliar to many yoga practitioners in the West, is still wanting to be explored.

In The Yoga of the Yogi, Kausthub Desikachar offers unique insights into the life of this influential, yet little-known yogi, who was also his grandfather. Krishnamacharya showed us that yoga is much more than asanas, or physiacal postures. In fact, yoga offers us a wide range of tools for healing the entire human system in a compassionate and holistic way. Above all, Krishnamacharya emphasized that there is no "one-size-fits-all" in yoga. To provide maximum benefit, practices must be adapted to serve the changing needs of each individual student.

The text includes photographs and archival materials that have never been published before, many from the personal collections of Krishnamacharya's family. Anyone interested in delving more deeply into the heart of yoga will find this book an invaluable resource.
