Health, healing and beyond : yoga and the living tradition of Krishnamacharya

"Yoga is India's greatest gift to the world, believed the sage Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. His contribution was to preserve and modernize the five-thousand-year-old wisdom that today benefits millions of individuals far beyond the confines of this Yogic master's homeland. To Krishnamacharya, Yoga was a means to improved health to restored well-being in the face of illness and to emotional balance and enhanced mental clarity. It was also the accessible path of progression toward union with the Absolute-- whether conceived as a named God or a nameless truth. Health, Healing & Beyond is the long-awaited biographical profile and exploration of the work of this teacher of many of Yoga's greatest exponents-- including B.K.S. Iyengar, Indra Devi, and K. Pattabhi Jois. It is the story of dedication to a single purpose-- to place the benefits of Yoga at the service of humanity"--Publisher's description
