The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice by T. K. V. Desikachar

Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was oe of the greatest yogis of the modern era.  Elements of Krishnamacharya's teaching have become well known around the world through the work of Bk.K. S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and Indra Devi, who studied with Krishnamacharya in their early years.  Krishnamacharya's son, T.K.V. Desikachar offers a distillation of his father's system as well as the essence of his own practical approach, which he describes as "basically a program for the spine at every level--physical, mental, and spiritual."  This is the first yoga text that outlines a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to the age-old principles of yoga.  Desikachar discusses all the elements of yoga--poses and counterposes, conscious breathing, meditation and philosophy--and shows how the yoga student may develop a practice tailored to his or her current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle.
