|"I found for the first time a complete view of Yoga. In this experience you can discover the nature of your mind, the whole of asana - not just the limited view of the West. It is the first time I felt close to Yoga."
—Roxana Letechipia Jolly, Former Student
Referred to as the father of modern Yoga and credited with the revival of Hatha Yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888–1989) was an Indian yoga teacher, Ayurvedic healer and scholar, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential teachers of the 20th Century. Some of his students include many of today’s most renowned Yoga teachers: B.K.S. Iyengar, T.K.V. Desikachar, Pattabhi Jois, and Srivatsa Ramaswami, Krishnamacharya’s longest-standing student outside his own family.
At LMU, Srivatsa Ramaswami presents his master’s teachings at the Vinyasa Krama Yoga Summer Institute, the highlight of which is a 100-hour Intensive program taught solely by him. Moreover, participants interested in teaching may enroll in additional courses offered by his faculty colleagues as part of the larger 200-hour Teacher Training program.
