Today we honour the passing, on August 20th, of one of the giants of modern yoga Sri BKS Iyengar. He was a great man and a brilliant proponent of yoga who will be sorely missed throughout the yoga world. His style of yoga has informed millions of practitioners around the world.
Sri Iyengar was a life time friend and colleague to our late and dear Guruji Sri K Patabois Jois 2015 – 2009
Iyengar was known for his precision and skill in achieving exactness with poses (and famous for introducing props in the studio room). He was also a hugely prolific author of books bringing a vibrant intellect to life. Light on Yoga remains one of the more/most respected books in the world of yoga.
“When I practice, I am a philosopher, when I teach I am a scientist, when I demonstrate I am an artist” BKS Iyengar.
