About the Author
Praise For The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice…
"I can think of no better book to recommend to a friend beginning to be excited by yoga but bewildered by the plethora of different schools and their sometimes-conflicting teachings. In addition, I would be hard-pressed to think of a book I would recommend more highly to any yoga student seeking to deepen a yoga practice . . . The great gift of The Heart of Yoga lies not simply in the depth of Desikachar's learning, but in the compassion, gentleness, practicality, and down-to-earth spirit that permeate the book."
" . . . a milestone in the transmission of yoga from the ancient masters to the modern world."
-Bodhi Tree Book Review, Winter 1999 / Spring 2000
“Read this book from cover to cover and you will begin to understand what yoga is all about.”
-The Sunday Times
“Those who are interested in understanding what yoga is about, those who are looking for a larger context and focus for their hatha practice, those who look to the Yoga Su-tra for guidance, and all those who have loved and benefited from Krishnamacharya and/or Desikachar, directly or indirectly, will want this book.”
“An invaluable source of information regarding the theory and practice of yoga. A must for students and teachers alike.”
-Indra Devi, author of Yoga for You
“Desikachar speaks from the heart with tenderness as well as an engineer's careful attention to details and individuality.”
-LA Yoga, January 2011
