"I must create an atmosphere in my classes in which each student can find his or her own way to yoga. I have to realize that each of my students is not the same person today as they were yesterday, and not at all the same as when they came last week...
.....Yoga serves the individual, and does so through inviting transformation rather that by giving information."
TKV Desikachar, the son of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, developed and emphasized a therapeutic style of hatha yoga which took into account a person's unique and specific physical condition. I am grateful for his honest & healing approach to the practice---a passion which has undoubtedly helped illuminate and bolster inclusive conversations around the importance of trauma informed/sensitive yoga.
His heart will be missed.
