The history is incorrect. According to David White Krishnamacharya studied with Tibetans in the Himalayas. This is where he was for 9 years or more learning "real" yoga most of which had been lost due to colonialism. Could you research this and do it justice please?
Wonderful article. Thank you so much. You answered many of the questions I've been asking recently.

Thanks for the excellent article on T Krishnamacahrya by Ruiz and for Yoga Journal for publishing in this website. I had seen him teaching yoga in Vivekananda College where he was part-time Sanskrit professor. My regret is that I did not learn yoga from him.I learned yoga from my uncle. Incidentally I am also an Iyengar and my wife belongs to Thirumalai clan. I can relate to his devotional fervor and learning from Yoga Rahasya of Nathamuni, a 9th cent saint of our tradition. But Yoga is for everybody in this world.
