If Kausthub Desikachar has secret and special teachings from Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar, where are they? Beware the yoga guru who claims secret knowledge and his “specialness” as his selling point.
Viniyoga was used by many senior teachers from the 1980s to represent individualized yoga instruction, at the suggestion of TKV Desikachar. Kausthub Desikachar has now copyrighted the name to own it, and is threatening legal action against all those who use it.
A disturbing thread of power, myth making, silencing, and sex can be seen in Kausthub Desikachar’s publications, statements, and actions over many years and it continues now. If this is not checked, victims will not get justice and more vulnerable women will be hurt.
