Breath of The Gods Film Night

Breath of The Gods – the influence of Krishnamacharya.

Ever wondered about the origins of yoga? Although yoga is an ancient tradition thousands of years old, its foundations have stayed strong over time.  This transmission, via teacher to student, is the basis of keeping such a tradition alive.

Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1988-1989) is considered the most influential yogi of modern times. He revived the ancient tradition of yoga for the modern world at at a time in India when the traditional teachings were being lost.

He had an immense capacity for learning and teaching. His achievements included –  personal yoga teacher to the King of Mysore, a scholar of many schools of Indian philosophy, a poet, author and renowned healer.

Many of his students became important teachers in offering yoga to the West – amongst them Indra Devi, Pattabhi Jois, BKS Iyengar and TKV Desikachar.

‘Breath of the Gods’ (105 mins) is a feature length documentary that details the influence of Krishnamacharaya, his life and teachings.
It is a must see film for any student of modern yoga who is interested in the tradition and foundations of how yoga is now practised.
(Many of the teachers at Kyo Yoga are trained in the lineage of Krishnamacharya through his son TKV Desikachar.)
