(from the back of the book)
"Here is a personal tribute to 'the father of modern yoga' Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888-1989), written by one of his longtime disciples. Krishnamacharya was a renowned Indian yoga master, Ayurvedic healer, and scholar who modernized yoga practice and whose students - including B. K. S. Iyengar, K. Pattabbhi Jois, T. K. V. Desikachar, and Indra Devi - dramatically popularized yoga in the West.
In this book, the author, A.G. Mohan, a well-respected yoga teacher and yoga therapist, draws on his own memories and Krishnamacharya's diaries to present a fascinating view of the man and his teachings, and Mohan's own warm and inspiring relationship with the master. This portrait of the great teacher will be a compelling and informative read for yoga teachers and students who truly want to understand the source of their tradition and practice."
