TKV Desikachar is the son and student of the legendary Sri T. Krishnamacharya: the guru of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, BKS Iyengar, and the founder of the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM). The discipline and gift of yoga was given to the world largely due to Desikachar’s father Sri T. Krishnamacharya. The KYM is a leading institution in the field of Yoga Therapy, Yoga Studies and research. Hundreds of patients every year find relief from various illnesses and conditions through the one-on-one sessions offered by KYM’s teachers. TKV Desikachar, together with his family, continues to spread the teachings of his father through lectures, workshops and trainings given all over the world. What distinguishes the Desikachar lineage is the utmost concern for the individual student’s needs, no matter the class size. The yoga practice is tailored to the student’s physical limitations & needs. Adaptations, modifications and variations of postures and breathing ratios will be given to maximize the individual’s benefits and minimize the risk of injury, making the practice useful, meaningful and often times therapeutic for the practitioner.
