Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era. Now his son teaches the full spectrum of his yoga with step-by-step instructions for poses, conscious breathing, meditation, and philosophy—tailored to the practitioner’s current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle.

T. K. V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father all his life 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
" . . . a milestone in the transmission of yoga from the ancient masters to the modern world."

"I can think of no better book to recommend to a friend beginning to be excited by yoga but bewildered by the plethora of different schools and their sometimes-conflicting teachings. In addition, I would be hard-pressed to think of a book I would recommend more highly to any yoga student seeking to deepen a yoga practice . . . The great gift of The Heart of Yoga lies not simply in the depth of Desikachar's learning, but in the compassion, gentleness, practicality, and down-to-earth spirit that permeate the book."
