Sri T. Krishnamacharya has been called the Teachers teacher, well know students of his include BKS Iyengar, BNS Iyengar, TKV Desikachar, AG Mohan, Srivatsa Ramaswami (my own teacher) and Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and indeed Vinyasa yoga in general is strongly associated with Pattabhi Jois who was Krishnamacharya's student in Mysore from the 1930s-50s, this book seeks to show how and to what extent contemporary Ashtanga is indepted to Krishnamacharya, the sequence of asana, the vinyasa count, the focus on breath and bandha and drishti, as well what has perhaps been mislaid along the way, the slowness of the breath, the extended stays in asana and vinyasas, the employment of kumbhaka (breath retention) and the integration of asana, pranayama and samyama IE. Dharaa (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) & Samadhi (union).
