Teach what is inside you.
Not as it applies to you, to yourself,
but as it applies to the other.
Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888 – 1989) was an Indian yogi, Ayurvedic healer and scholar who came to be known as The Father of Modern Yoga.
As the inspiring teacher of such modern greats such as BKS Iyengar (Iyengar Yoga), K. Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga), Indra Devi, and his son, TKV Desikachar, no other person had a greater impact on the evolution and modernisation of Yoga during the 20th century.
Krishnamacharya’s fundamental belief was that the practices of Yoga must be adapted to meet each student’s individual needs (viniyoga), so that Yoga could be truly accessible to all.
