Krishnamacharya: His Life and Teachings

Shambhala Publications, 13.07.2010 - 176 Seiten
Here is a personal tribute to "the father of modern yoga" Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888–1989), written by one of his longtime disciples. Krishnamacharya was a renowned Indian yoga master, Ayurvedic healer, and scholar who modernized yoga practice and whose students—including B. K. S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois, T. K. V. Desikachar, and Indra Devi—dramatically popularized yoga in the West

In this book, the author, A. G. Mohan, a well-respected yoga teacher and yoga therapist, draws on his own memories and notes, and Krishnamacharya’s diaries and recorded material, to present a detailed and fascinating view of the man and his teachings, and his own warm and inspiring relationship with the master. This portrait of the great teacher will be a compelling and informative read for yoga teachers and students who truly want to understand the source of their tradition and practice.

Wonderful book on a master

Nutzerbericht  - johnnyzmiii -

This is a most wonderful and accurate book about how a master teaches and what Krishnamacharya taught. A wonderful teacher who passed on Yoga in the way that we should all attempt to emulate. I loved this book and would highly recommend it to any student of Yoga. Vollständige Rezension lesen
