Today, Nov. 18, is Tirumalai Krishnamacharya’s birthday. The teacher of not only Pattabhi Jois, aka Guruji, and Iyengar, among others, was born in 1888 and died in 1989. Yes, he’s another who seems to prove that practice, practice, practice, and long life is coming.
Krishnamacharya’s son, Desikachar, founded the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram to keep his father’s legacy alive. You can find more about it here.
Happy birthday to the man often called “the founder of modern yoga.” Without him, we’d all just be stretching.
