Kausthub Desikachar, grandson of Krishnamacharya, mixes biography, personal recollections of learning from his father and grandfather, with personal experiences with his own students and clients. We learn about Krishnamacharya's remarkable life, filled with commitment to follow his path despite many obstacles, including hitting the road when he was in his sixties to support his family when patronage for his school was lost. What comes across most is Kausthub's frequent reminders that his grandfather always practiced viniyoga -- adapting the yoga practices to each individual including always being respectful of each persons religious and spiritual beliefs and encouraging them to find their own truth in their own traditions if they have one. A sincere and welcome book. There is surprisingly little overlap with other books about Krishnamacharya, as Kausthub writes sincerely and from the heart. I have heard Kausthub speak, and his speaking voice comes through in his writing. A rich experience with a lot to reconsider about the development of asana practice in the early part of last century, and a lot to ponder about yoga and life.
Some slavish foot kissing of yet another guru who made a great deal of no eu off the white yoga seekers of the west.
Read carefully and you might glean a few good insights.
