"Krishnamacharya was a renowned Indian yoga master, Ayurvedic healer, and scholar who modernized yoga practice and whose students including B. K. S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois, T. K. V. Desikachar, and Indra Devi dramatically popularized yoga in the West. This personal tribute to the father of modern yoga, Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888-1989), is written by one of his longtime disciples, a well-respected yoga teacher and yoga therapist in his own right. A. G. Mohan draws on his own memories and notes, and on Krishnamacharya's diaries and recorded material, to present a fascinating view of the man and his teachings, and of his own warm and inspiring relationship with the master. It's a valuable read for all yoga students, and an essential one for all experienced yoga teachers and yoga therapists who want to understand the source of their tradition and practice."
