Yoga Rahasya of Nathamuni

Sri Krishnamacharya is the author of a few books. He wrote a commentary on the first chapter of the Yoga Sutras, Yogasanagalu on yogasanas. A book called the Yoga Makaranda, (Nectar of Yoga) is a comprehensive treatment of yoga with particular emphasis on vinyasas in many asymmetric seated postures.
And Nathamuni's Yoga Rahasya, this is a precious text in the history of yoga, attributed to Vaisnavite saints over a thousand years ago. When I was studying with him he extensively would quote from Yoga Rahasya (Secret of Yoga). Subsequently he dictated the text over a long period of time. Fortunately it has been published by KYM. It contains four chapters and contains a wealth of information about Sri Krishnamacharya's traditional yoga as transmitted to him by the grace of Sage Nathamuni. In this program we will go through all the verses. In addition some readings in Yoga Makaranda also will be included.
