In Memoriam B.K.S. Iyengar

B.K.S. Iyengar 1918-2014

Guruji_nov2012Bellur Krishnamachar Sundaraj Iyengar has passed away at the age of 96.

Much could be said about his contribution to Yoga but I prefer to let you all comment with your remembrances.

I never had the chance to be in a class taught by him but had the opportunity to hear him speak on occasion and I can say that he was a man with a clear vision and inspired me to be the person I am today.

With Iyengar’s passing now there are precious few direct inheritors of T. Krishnamacharya’s lineage still teaching today.

Fortunately, there are literally thousands of yoga teachers who are trained enough to be the next generation tasked with carrying on the vital work of spreading the precious teachings that flow from this deep, rich wellspring.

Please, post your thoughts and what any of the three meant to you or someone you know below in the comments.
