So much could be said about his immeasurable contribution to Yoga that I prefer to let you all comment with your remembrances.
For myself, I can say that my teacher Desikachar always spoke of him with great respect, and seemed proud to call him uncle.
With Iyengar’s passing today, Pattabhi Joiis’s in 2009, and Desikachar’s incapacity, that leaves precious few direct inheritors of T. Krishnamacharya’s lineage still teaching today.
Fortunately, there are literally thousands of us who are lucky enough to be the next generation of teachers tasked with carrying on the vital work of spreading the precious teachings that flow from this deep, rich wellspring.
