Developing A Personal Practice

by T.K.V. Desikachar

the heart of yoga

Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, is one of the most well respected and well known yogis of the modern era. Elements of his teaching have been spread around the world through the work of his students BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Indra Devi and AG Mohan. TKV Desikachar is Krishnamacharya's son, who lived and studied with the great master all his life and now teaches the full spectrum of Krishnamacharya's yoga. The core of this teaching is that practices must be continually adapted to the individuals changing needs to achieve the maximum beneficial effect.
     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." He discusses poses and counterposes, 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.
     Included in this book is Desikachar's complete translation of and commentary on the Yoga Sutra of Pantanjali and thirty-two poems composed by his father that capture the essence of his teachings. This trade paperback book has 242 pages.
     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.
