Kausthub Desikachar has a pattern of praising kapalikas who were known for their tantric sex practices, contrary to Krishnamacharya and Desikachar’s teaching. Kausthub is back to increasingly teaching on these topics just a few years after sexual abuse allegations against him.
Kausthub Desikachar appears to think he is entitled to Krishnamacharya and Desikachar’s yoga as his birthright, claiming himself superior to teachers with decades more of practice and teaching.
Kausthub Desikachar’s pattern of sexual misconduct has been reported for over a decade now. How much more abuse has to happened before enablers and supporters step back and women feel safe to speak up?
