A structural engineer by training, T. K. V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father until Krishnamacharya's death in 1989.

Review

" . . . a milestone in the transmission of yoga from the ancient masters to the modern world." (Bodhi Tree Book Review, Winter 1999 / Spring 2000)

“Read this book from cover to cover and you will begin to understand what yoga is all about.” (The Sunday Times)

“Those who are interested in understanding what yoga is about, those who are looking for a larger context and focus for their hatha practice, those who look to the Yoga Su-tra for guidance, and all those who have loved and benefited from Krishnamacharya and/or Desikachar, directly or indirectly, will want this book.” (Yoga International)

“An invaluable source of information regarding the theory and practice of yoga. A must for students and teachers alike.” (Indra Devi, author of Yoga for You)

“Desikachar speaks from the heart with tenderness as well as an engineer's careful attention to details and individuality.” (LA Yoga, January 2011)

"I can think of no better book to recommend to a friend beginning to be excited by yoga but bewildered by the plethora of different schools and their sometimes-conflicting teachings. In addition, I would be hard-pressed to think of a book I would recommend more highly to any yoga student seeking to deepen a yoga practice . . . The great gift of The Heart of Yoga lies not simply in the depth of Desikachar's learning, but in the compassion, gentleness, practicality, and down-to-earth spirit that permeate the book." (Yoga Journal) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
