About the Institute
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 Loyola Marymount University, Srivatsa Ramaswami presents his master’s teachings at the annual Vinyasa Krama Yoga Summer Institute. This annual institute is open to the public, and meets on the main (Westchester) campus of the university in Los Angeles.
