Our approach to teacher training celebrates the broad perspective that was gifted to TKV Desikachar by his father T.Krishnamacharya, throughout their 30 year Teacher-Student relationship.
Barbara Brian, a Director of Āgamā Yoga Centre was one of TKV Desikachar long-time students. She continues to offer these unique Teacher Training Courses in the more traditional manner; universally relevant and taught in a very personal way.

How is the Spirit of Yoga Transmitted? 24 June 2018
Āgamā Yoga Centre director Barbara Brian attended a special event in St Cecile du Vignes, Southern France with many of TKV Desikachar’s long term students. A statement from this gathering follows:
This past weekend, 16 of TKV Desikachar’s long-term students from around the world met and spent time together in the South of France. We reflected on what we have received personally from our teacher through our individual lessons in Chennai over many years. Within this context certain questions arose which we would like to share as an offering. How is the spirit of yoga transmitted? What are the conditions that make this transmission possible? How can all of us support the continuity of this transmission? We will continue to meet and work together to sustain the spirit of TKV Desikachar’s teaching as we have understood it.
