"Breath is central to yoga because breath is central to life and yoga is about life." - T. Krishnamacharya
Your Seasons Yoga is dedicated to the study and teachings of holistic, traditional yoga from Krishnamacharya as taught to his son TKV Desikachar. These teachings continue to be disseminated through the relationship of teacher and student and this lineage of yoga supports an evolutionary practice that changes according to the needs of the student.
Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888-1989) is regularly regarded as the “Father of Modern Yoga.” He approached yoga as both a spiritual practice and a means of physical healing. His teachings remain one of the greatest influences shaping yoga as we know it, inspiring many of the popular methods of yoga taught today. Some of Krishnamacharya's students who became renowned teachers include: his son T. K. V. Desikachar (1938-2016), Indra Devi (1899–2002), K. Pattabhi Jois (1915–2009), his brother-in-law B. K. S. Iyengar (1918-2014), and A. G. Mohan (born 1945). T.K.V. Desikachar was his longest student and has been instrumental in transmitting the teachings of his father.
TKV Desikachar (1938-2016) was one of the most respected Yoga healers and teachers of our time. He studied with his father, Sri T Krishnamacharya, for three decades. In 1976, he founded the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM), a non-profit healing center in Chennai, India, to honor his father and share his teachings of individualized practice. Desikachar is the author of many books and publications, including Health, Healing and Beyond and The Heart of Yoga.
