Yoga 4 Healthful Living is inspired by and dedicated to the teachings of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya as taught to his son TKV Desikachar and rooted in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya
Sri Krishnamacharya, 1889 – 1999, revitalized yoga as a holistic healing system to be available to any sincere seeker, regardless of age, background, station in life, culture, or religion. His teaching remains as one of the greatest influences shaping yoga as we know it, inspiring many of the great yoga masters, including BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Indra Devi, and his own son TKV Desikachar.
Mr. Desikachar has been one of the most respected yoga healers and teachers of our time, having studied with his father for three decades. He is the author of many books and publications, including Health, Healing and Beyond and The Heart of Yoga.
