"Health, Healing, and Beyond" is a beautifully crafted tribute to the life and teachings of Krishnamacharya, epic in scope yet intimate in nature. Desikachar speaks with quiet wisdom and a profound sense of purpose that keeps our interest continually engaged. He introduces us to the basic texts and concepts of yoga, gives insight into a variety of yogic practices, presents a yogic theory of health and healing, and explores the nature of the student-teacher relationship. Through Desikachar's affectionate humor and sensitive writing, we learn as much from the lives of father and son as from their teachings."--Donald Moyer, Director of The Yoga Room in Berkeley, CA

"My father's teaching first and foremost was based on the truth that each student must be taught according to his or her individual capacity at any given time. And each step is to be experienced for what the Bhagavad-Gita shows it to be: an episode in the greatest of all adventures, the eternal journey of the soul."--T. K. V. Desikachar.

"My father's teaching ... was based on the truth that each student must be taught according to his or her individual capacity at any given time. And each step is to be experienced for what the Bhagavad-Gita shows it to be: an episode in the greatest of all adventures, the eternal journey of the soul." --T. K. V. Desikachar

Descended from an ancient yogic lineage, T. K. V. Desikachar is recognized as yoga's foremost teacher of teachers. Health, Healing, and Beyond is the long-awaited study of his application of yogic practices to achieve a union of body, mind, and spirit. Desikachar's father, T. Krishnamacharya, one of the greatest healers and sages of modern Indian history, incorporated many of his country's traditions into the adaptation and teaching of yoga for contemporary society. A student of Krishnamacharya for more than thirty years, Desikachar continues his father's efforts to preserve the essential teachings of yoga established over two thousand years ago.
