Professor Tirumalai Krishnamacharya is known worldwide as the father of modern Yoga. He revolutionized Yoga in the 20th century and made it accessible to everyone. He was an outstanding Vedic scholar who was versed in all the six philosophies of Indian thought, as well as in other Vedic disciplines such as Ayurveda and Astrology. Later in life, he opened the doors of Vedic Chanting, previously only allowed to male Brahmins, to every sincere student, independent of age, religion, nationality, caste or gender.
