B.K.S. Iyengar inspired yoga practice in the West, notably through his 1966 international bestselling book, Light on Yoga. Through intensive study, using his own body both as a laboratory and a playground, he evolved a yogic method that calls for a profound spiritual and physical practice. In the classes he led over many years, Iyengar taught with joy and stern mastery, giving the gift of yoga to all who sought it.
“Yogacharya B.K.S.Iyengar (Guruji) is a living legend who has taught yoga in unique way to all his students. He finds the meaning of the yoga sutras by his practical search and regular practice of yoga. Thus, he has helped all to experience the wisdom of the yoga sutras. His style of teaching yoga is called "Iyengar Yoga" and is now being followed by certified teachers across the world.” (B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga - The Official Website)
