Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar fondly known as ‘Guruji’ masterminded the techniques which can be used by Yoga practitioners. Called the “Michelangelo of yoga” and named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people, B.K.S. Iyengar was universally acknowledged as the world’s foremost yoga teacher. He brought wisdom of Yoga and Yoga Sutras to the ordinary human being. Born in Bellur, India in 1918, he was introduced to yoga at the age of 16. Guruji has written numerous books on yoga. His book ‘Light on Yoga’, called “the bible of yoga,” has been the source book for generations of yoga students.
May the light he showed us continue to help us through our journey of yoga..!
