Krishnamacharya: His Life and Teachings by A.G. Mohan


Few people in Yoga circles haven't heard the names of giants like B.K.S Iyengar (founder of Iyengar Yoga) or Krishna Pattabhi Jois (founder of the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore India); both men are responsible for the dissemination of Yoga throughout the Western world in the twentieth century. Many modern Yoga teachers can trace their origins back to these two men, and in like manner, they owe their early training to the father of modern Yoga, Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.

Mohan, who studied with Sri Krishnamacharya for nearly twenty years, provides readers with a unique insight into this modern master's life and teachings. Not only was Krishnamacharya a master of Hatha Yoga, but also an Ayurvedic healer and scholar of Vedic and Yogic texts, who tailored his teachings to each student's physical, intellectual and spiritual development.

Krishnamacharya: His Life and Teachings is essential reading for anyone developing their own Yoga practice, because it provides not only a biography of this important historic figure, but also sheds light on many key aspects of Yoga study and application.
