BKS Iyengar (1918 - 2014)

Yogacharya BKS Iyengar, the founder and guru of "Iyengar Yoga" sadly passed away on 20th August 2014 aged 95. Widely recognised as one of the greatest yogi's of the modern age he had a huge influence on the practice of yoga worldwide. We, at IIYS, mourn his passing but celebrate his life and the benefits his teachings, given so freely, have brought to so many.

"When I practice I am a philosopher, 
when I teach I am a scientist, 
when I demonstrate I am an artist."
