Honoring our Teacher

Honoring our Teacher

On June 21st, Mr. TKV Desikachar would have been 80 years old. On the weekend of his birthday, sixteen personal students of Mr. Desikachar gathered in Orange, France to reflect. Below is the statement from the weekend.
How is the Spirit of Yoga Transmitted?

This past weekend, sixteen of TKV Desikachar’s long-term students from around the world met and spent time together in the South of France. We reflected on what we each personally received from our teacher through our individual lessons in Chennai over many years.

Within this context, certain questions arose that we would like to share as an offering.

  • How is the Spirit of Yoga transmitted?
  • What are the conditions that make this transmission possible?
  • How can all of us support the continuity of this transmission?

We will continue to meet and work together to sustain the spirit of TKV Desikachar’s teaching as we have understood it.
