Krishnamacharya, who has been called 'father of contemporary yoga', was one of the most influential yoga teacher of the 20th century. When yoga was considered only as the way of life of the Yogis and spiritual teachers of ancient India, he revived this ancient art and transmitted it to focus it towards the individual capabilities of each person. His son, T.K.V. Desikachar helped spread these teachings and presented to the world the term 'viniyoga' in the sense of 'individual approach' in the context of health. The tradition of Krishnamacharya yoga is widely known especially in this area for its adaptations and individualized modifications that make it ideal for anyone regardless of age, social status, beliefs or gender.
