The first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to viniyoga--yoga adapted to the needs of the individual.
- A contemporary classic by a world-renowned teacher.
- This new edition adds thirty-two poems by Krishnamacharya that capture the essence of his teachings.
Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era. Elements of Krishnamacharya's teaching have become well known around the world through the work of B. K. S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and Indra Devi, who all studied with Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya's son T. K. V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father all his life and now teaches the full spectrum of Krishnamacharya's yoga. Desikachar has based his method on Krishnamacharya's fundamental concept of "viniyoga," which maintains that practices must be continually adapted to the individual's changing needs to achieve the maximum therapeutic value.
In "The Heart of Yoga" Desikachar offers a distillation of his father's system as well as his own practical approach, which he describes as "a program for the spine at every level--physical, mental, and spiritual." This is the first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to the age-old principles of yoga. Desikachar discusses all the elements of yoga--poses and counterposes, conscious breathing, meditation, and philosophy--and shows how the yoga student may develop a practice tailored to his or her current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle.
This is a revised edition of "The Heart of Yoga."

YOGA EL CORAZON DEL YOGA"No puedo pensar en ningun libro mejor para reomendar a un amigo que empieza a entusiamarse con el yoga, pero que esta desconcertado por la abundancia de diferentes escuelas y sus ensenanzas, contradictorias a veces. Ademas, me veria en apuros para pensar en u libro que pudiera recomendar mas ampliamente a cualquier estudiante de yoga, que busca profundizar mas en esta practica. . . . El gran regalo de El corazon del yoga no radica simplemente en la profundidad del aprendizaje de Desikachar, sino en la compasion, la gentileza, el sentido practico y el espiritu realista que impregna este libro."Yoga Journal"Lea este libro de principio a fin y empezara a entender de que se trata el yoga."The Sunday Times"Quienes estan interesados en entender lo que es el yoga, aquellos que buscan un contexto mas extenso y se enfocan en su practica hatha, aquellos que buscan el Yoga Sutra como un guia y todos aquellos directa o indierectamente, han amado y recibido algun beneficio de Krishnamacharya o Desikachar, desearan tener este libro."Yoga International"Una valiosa fuente de informacion sobre la teoria y practica del yoga. Indispensable para estudiantes y maestros por igual."Indra Devi, autora de Yoga for YouSri Tirmalai Krishnamacharya, quien vivio mas de 100 anos, fue uno de los mas grandes yoguis de la era moderna. Los elementos de su ensenanza se han difundido por todo el mundo, gracias a los trabajos de B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois e Indra Devi, en sus primeros anos, fueron alumnos de Krishnamacharya. Su hijo T.K.V. Desikachar vivio y estudio con el toda su vida y ahora ensena la gama total del yoga de Krishnamacharya y tiene como base las ensenanzas fundamentales de supadre, donde se sostiene que las practicas se deben adaptar continuamente a las necesidades cambiantes del individuo, para lograr el maximo valor terapeutico.En El corazon del yoga Desikachar ofrece una sintesis del sistema de su padre y su propio acercamiento practico, que describe como "un programa para la espina, a cualquier nivel, fisico, mental y espiritual." Este es el primer texto sobre yoga, que da una idea general de la seuencia, paso a paso, para desarrollar una practica completa de acuerdo a los antiguos principios del yoga. Desikachar discute todos los elementos del yoga-posturas y contraposturas, respiracion consciente, meditacion y filosofia-y muestra al estudiante de yoga como debe desarrollar una practica que se ajuste a su estado actual de salud, su edad ocupacion y estilo de vida. Krishnamacharya daba al Yoga Sutra de Patanjali un valor muy alto. En este libro se incluy en su totalidad, con la traduccion y comentarios de Desikachar. A la segunda edicion de El corazon del Yoga se agrego el Yoganjalisaram, treinta y dos poemas compuestos por Krishnamacharya que capturan la esencia de sus ensenanzas y aun mas, hacen de El corazon del yoga un hito en la transmision del yoga, de los antiguos maestros al mundo moderno. Un ingeniero estructural teorico, T.K.V. Desikachar vivio y estudio con su padre hasta la muerte de este en 1989. Ha dedicado su vida a la ensenanza del yoga a personas de todas condiciones y niveles de habilidad, y en la actualidad ensena en la escuela fundada en memoria de su padre en Madras, asi como en Europa, los Estados Unidos, Australia y Nueva Zelandia.

Lessons from a great yoga master and an eminent psychoanalyst that explore what psychotherapy and yoga philosophy have in common
Yoga philosophy and Freud's revolutionary approach to psychology could not have been developed in more different times, places, or cultural conditions. And yet these two profound and dynamic systems of understanding human behavior, emotions, perception, and what's essential in our existence have an astonishing amount to share. What we learn by comparing their similarities as well as their differences can enhance how we comprehend our lives and our potential for change.
In "Freud and Yoga," the great yoga master T.K.V. Desikachar and the eminent psychoanalyst Hellfried Krusche examine forty classic sayings, or "sūtras," from the vantage point of their respective disciplines. Through clear, candid conversations that draw on long experience and are illustrated by case studies from the clinic and the "shala," these two experts explain the concepts, terms, forces, and processes in their traditions.
Therapists and patients, yoga adepts and professionals, and readers interested in psychology and spirituality will find this unique investigation fascinating, enriching, and useful. In a time when Western and Eastern modalities have ever more to offer each other, "Freud and Yoga" is a watershed work--one that draws us closer to understanding our own nature and the deep workings of the human psyche.
