"When I practice, I am a philosopher. When I teach, I am a scientist. When I demonstrate, I am an artist"
- B.K.S Iyengar -
Today's post is dedicated to Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja (B.K.S.) Iyengar (Guruji) for his dedication to teach yoga and for sharing his experience and wisdom across the world.
Guruji began teaching yoga over 70 years ago and deservedly he is acknowledged as a master of yoga. With his experience and research he has developed his own yoga style, which is suitable for anyone. Iyengar yoga is characterized by precision and alignment, timing in and sequencing of postures, and the use of props, such as belts and wooden gadgets.
During the mid 70´s Guruji opened The Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, in memory of his late wife. He currently lives there dedicating his life to yoga; practicing, writing books and giving some special classes.
