Yoga Sutras

June 12, 2012 , , , ,

In ancient India the practice of yoga developed as taught from guru to students.  The Yoga Sutras were written by Patanjali including some aphorisms and wisdom from the past with his own observations. Modern schools of yoga can be traced, in many cases to one man, Krishnamacharya, whose son, TVK Desikachar  is teaching yoga today.  The voice of Krishnamachayra accompanies BKS Iyengar in this video from 1938.

The student was not only physically challenged, but also was a scholar of ancient texts. Sanskrit chanting was part of the daily discipline. It is possible to attend the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram today.
