Sri T.K.Sribhashyam was the youngest son of Sri T.Krishnamacharya and taught Yoga in Europe from 1970 – 2017. The book Emergence of Yoga was produced as a support for his students and contains the essential practical teachings that he shared with western students. It is based on a spiritual Sadhana taught by the ancient Rsi Yajnyavalkya and transmitted to Sribhashyam by his Father.

It is important to emphasise the spiritual orientation of this approach. It is a direct method to realise the soul and attain spiritual liberation, so is meditative in its approach. As Sribhashyam says in his book, Yoga Sadhana is the name Yagnavalkya gave to the set of practices whose aim is to stop punar murtyr or punar janma (the cycle of birth and death) so this is a nivritti dharma.

On completion of the Five Day Workshop you will be able to attend ongoing sessions in a study & practice group to deepen your practice and understanding.
