Almost everybody in some moments of their lifes are looking for answer or a meaning in their life.
Maybe in that moment the yoga path arrived into your life and in this way you could find a way how to development yourself.
Sometimes the searching is almost a desesperated act of trying to resolve some issue or issues in your life or find that meaningfull life.
In another hand sometimes this looking for appears in quite moments where you need to be alone maybe in the middle of nowhere.
Teachers, gurus appearing in your life for a reason, maybe sometimes you cant understand why or what reason they are over there or how the life did it for crossing paths.
Whatever they are in front of you, they are for a reason, maybe at the beginning you didnt realize why …but with the time everything will be settle down.
It is important working in the UNATTACHMENT between the relationship between teacher and student.
I have to work into this, during a couple of times, sometimes we put so much into the hands of the other, so much expectation and this is not good.
Everyone has to run his own path, and there is noone who can do it for you.
So for that enjoy the life and continue going on further.
Feel free and discover your personnal yoga path.
About my teachers, they have show me so much, in the best and bad way. And in some moment maybe I have to realize that they are also humans with their own failures, where it is the limit betwen the master role and the human being role,with is the small border where it´s appear the human person and the teacher is starting being away…sometimes the line could be very thick.
About the GURUs, there are some many, in different mystic currents from the perspective of the Yoga and Meditation, some of the most famous are;

In the next post I will write more about the main yoga GURU´s from the traditional schools in India.
I would like to bring to your notice, that one great Sanskrit pandit and Yoga teacher was in the company of Shri. Krishnamacharya, the founder. No one seems to be aware of it. Please do research from your archieves, and let me know. I know more about him.. hrlv
thank you very much for your comment, could you tell me the name of yoga teacher who was with Krishnamacharya, it could be more easier for me…do it my research
His name was C.M.Bhatt, who has taught the Bombaites Ashtanga yoga during 1950 to 1980s
Some more details about Yogacharya, Shri. C.M.Bhatt. He was media shy, and very honest person and believed in himself. Even earlier to Shri.B.K.S Iyengar he came in contact with Shri. Krishnamacharya.(BKS was Krishnamacharya’s brother-in- law) Shri.Bhatt hails from Chitradurga town, of Karnataka, and came very early time to Mysore to study Sanskrit at The Mysore Sanskrit vidyalaya.before 1938. After gaining education he taught Sanskrit to the students, in three places in Mysore.
At that time, Shri.Krishnamacharya came to Mysore from North India. He was a very good teacher in Yoga. So, he invited a few students to learn yoga. Bhatt was the first one, among many students who caught the imagination of Krishnamacharya. Later The Maharaja of Mysore sent these two to North India including Bombay to propagate Yogasanas. There is documental evidence from the press report that both taught Yoga to the citizen of Bombay at Dadar, under the auspicious of Curing Tuberculosis with the help of Yoga.
Later when the Yoga school at Mysore was closed in 1946 all of them have to look out for their livelihood. One stared a private yoga school at Mysore, Krishnamacharya went to Madras, and of course Bhatt went to Bombay. Rest is history.
Even today, Smt. Rangamma bhatt is speaking all those things at the ripe age of 97 years. (She is at Bengaluru)
