HEART OF YOGA by T.K.V. Desikachar

by: T.K.V. Desikachar

Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era; he developed the concept of Viniyoga which maintains that practices must be continually adapted to the individual’s changing needs to achieve the maximum therapeutic value. This book about Viniyoga is written by his son, T. K. V. Desikachar, who lived and worked with Krishnamacharya, and who was a teacher of Viniyoga himself. He’s brought a practical eye to the narrative, creating a step-by-step sequence for us to follow which will provide “a program for the spine at every level - physical, mental, and spiritual”. He also discusses all the elements of yoga and shows how we can develop a practice tailored to our current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle. The book includes 32 beautiful poems by Krishnamacharya that really capture the essence of his teachings.
