The Yoga of Deśikācar
A dialogue to honour and express gratitude for Sri TKV Deśikācar on the occasion of the 2021 International Day of Yoga. This online event was organised by Yoga Vahini and Ritambhara Ashram.
The intent behind this event is for teachers in the tradition of Sri T Krishnamacharya-Desikachar to reflect upon:
- Who are the teachers of yoga in this tradition today?
- What is the root of each individual’s current yoga teaching?
- How did Sri TKV Deśikācar impact and influence each teacher in making them who they are today?
Four senior teachers in this tradition share their experience of learning with Sir and how he has influenced them: Raghu Ananthanarayanan, Gary Kraftsow, R. Sriram, and Dr. Latha Satish.
The sankalpa is to culminate this dialogue series with a conference to honour the Guruparampara in 2022.
