Title: The Yoga of The
The Yoga of The Yogi is a tribute to one of the greatest yogis of
the modern era. Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, known 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. He was a yogi 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, Pattabi Jois, BKS
Iyengar, and TKV Desikachar - are known all over the world. Yet, the
full promise of Krishnamacharya's legacy, unfamiliar to many yoga
practitioners in the West, is still waiting to be explored.
