tkpranayamapicKrishnamacharya was a master Yogi who, over his lifetime, taught classical yoga and yoga therapy, to yoga for the mastery of the siddhi powers and spiritual aspirations. T. Krishnamacharya managed to keep these pearls together with an underlying framework that runs through all of the different expressions of his yoga teachings; the golden string that holds the pearls together.  Learn how each expression of Krishnamacharya yoga is beautifully compartmentalized, as well as a part of a comprehensive yogic system of thought.
