Find Your Yoga: The 5 Principles of Krishnamacharya



Do you ever feel your yoga practice is stagnating? Or that there are so many postures you will never be able to do? What if there were some simple principles that would help ensure that your yoga practice was constantly evolving, through all stages of your life? What if applying these simple principles to your practice would help you see a clear path for personal evolution? If you want to empower your yoga and spiritual practice please join Andrew Tanner for an all-levels master class on the “5 Principles of Krishnamacharya"

T. Krishnamacharya (1888 - 1989) is often called the “father of modern yoga” because his students (Iyengar, Desikachar, Indra Devi, etc) brought yoga and yoga therapy to the west and made it vastly popular. His student’s work, and subsequent generations of teachers after them has evolved into the modern day alignment based vinyasa flow that is practiced by millions. But what did Krishnamacharya actually teach? You’ll be surprised...

This master class will look at the history of yoga’s evolution in the west and share 5 principles for practicing yoga postures as the teacher of teachers did. The best part is that the principles apply to all levels of student. We will then participate in a practice and use the principles leaving you in a state of bliss...

Andrew had the good fortune of studying these principles with Mark Whitwell, who spent years visiting Krishnamacharya’s home in Chennai India and studying directly from his son T.K.V. Desikachar.

“Incorporating these 5 principles into my practice has had a profound effect on how I understand yoga and my ability to enter into a meditative state while I practice asana. I wish to share this with as many people as possible because they are so simple and liberating.”
