Krishnamacharya Yoga 1938

If you don’t know who is T.Krishnamacharya, don’t be surprised. He is the teacher of two of the most well-known names in Yoga – BKS Iyengar and Sri Pattabi Jois. All the three were residents of the state of Karnataka, with Sri Jois still teaching in Mysore. BKS Iyengar was born in the village of Bellur in north Karnataka. T. Krishnamacharya was the Guru of Sri Krishna Raja Wodeyar, the then king of Mysore. He is supposedly have cured the King of some problem through Yoga which medicine couldn’t. T. Krishnamacharya was also the yoga teacher of popular Kannada movie star – Rajkumar. It is kind of funny how the videos of Iyengar and his guru are both from 1938. It isn’t surprising in India to have fans claim ‘more’ of their idols due to lack of authenticity to many facts.
