About Iyengar Yoga
Iyengar Yoga is derived from the teachings of BKS Iyengar. His teachings are a unique interpretation of the classical 2000 year old text the “Yoga sutras of Patanjali”. Yogacharya Sri .BKS.Iyengar has devoted more than 70 years to developing a scientific system of the eight fold path of yoga practice. His thorough study, understanding and mastery of yoga are unrivalled. Described worldwide as the Michelangelo or the Pope of the Yoga world, he celebrated his 91st birthday in 2009 and continues to practice, write and teach daily. He continues to set a high standard for his teachers and students. He is based at the Ramamani Memorial Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India, where his daughter Sri Geeta and son Sri Prashant Iyengar are also directors and teach in his name.
