Sri T Krishnamacharya (1888-1989) is sometimes called the father of modern yoga, as he was the teacher of India's most well know yoga teachers including B.K.S Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois and T.K.V. Desikachar (his son) amongst others. So, almost all the styles of yoga practiced today have been influenced by or originated from the teachings of Krishnamacharya.
He was a great scholar, holding the equivalent to doctorates in all six systems of traditional Indian Philosophy, a master of yoga and also a respected healer. He dedicated his life to practicing and teaching yoga, we owe him tremendous gratitude.
A.G.Mohan was a personal student and aide to Sri T Krishnamacharya continuously for the last 18 years of his life. In his latter years A.G. Mohan decided to publish a book in honour of his teacher, "Yoga for Body, Breath and Mind", Krishnamacharya wrote the foreword as a tribute to his student. Subsequently, Mohanji has published three more books; "Yoga Therapy" co-written with Indraji and Ganesh, "Krishnamacharya" detailing his time with his master also co-written with Ganesh and a translation of the Yoga Yajnavalkya, regarded by Krishnamacharya as a fundamental Yoga text alongside The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Indra Mohan is one of the few people to have received a post graduate diploma in yoga from Krishnamacharya. She has been teaching yoga for more than thirty years and is a source of inspiration and wisdom to her many personal students around the world.
Mohanji and Indraji continue to teach in Chennai; they are completely dedicated to passing on the teachings from Krishnamacharya as faithfully as possible and still travel widely wherever they are invited, establishing dedicated students to this wonderful practice.
As the son of Mohanji and Indraji, Ganesh has been practicing yoga, Vedic chanting and more from early childhood. He is deeply interested in the profound wisdom in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali which he continues to study and teach. He is a doctor of medicine and also an ayurvedic practitioner. He has developed the Svastha Yoga Therapy Programme together with Dr. Gunter Neissen, a specialist in orthopaedic and trauma surgery with a yoga and orthopaedics practice in Berlin. Ganesh also teaches on the Svastha Yoga intensive teacher training programme.
As a teacher he is as compassionate and inspiring as his parents and unbelievably, even clearer in his presentation of complex concepts. He skilfully bridges the gaps between western and eastern thinking.
