B.K.S. Iyengar is the most important figure in the world of yoga, for the level of his practice and his teaching.
The master (1918-2014) called Guruji by his students, lived and taught in Pune (India) in the Institute dedicated to the memory of his wife, the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute, where today his sons Geeta and Prashant Iyengar and his niece Abhijata, passionately continue his work of study and study of Yoga.
The institute, a famous international study center is dedicated to the practice and training of students and teachers from all over the world, and also has a section dedicated to the study of the therapeutic effects of Yoga.

His life

B.K.S. Iyengar was introduced to the West in the sixties by the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin, who met the Master during a tour and was fascinated by the power of his teaching and by his charismatic personality. Among his most famous books:
  •   Light on Yoga: (Theory and Practice of Yoga, 1965) translated throughout the world and a true best-seller for the praricanti of all styles of Yoga, whose B.K.S. Iyengar strictly analyzes and defines more than two hundred Asanas (positions);
  •   Light on Pranayama: (Theory and Practice of Pranayama, 1985) in which the Master describes and deepens with great rigor and detail the main yogic techniques of resipination.

His teaching

More than any other teacher, he has stimulated interest in practicing and spreading Yoga internationally, teaching and giving demonstrations around the world for over seventy years.
Thanks to his work and his teachings IYENGAR Yoga Centers have been born all over the world (Europe, United States and Canada, Australia, Central and South America, Russia, China and many others).
B.K.S. Iyengar represents a great innovator in the history of Yoga, unique in its kind, having devoted a great deal of energy to the development of a teaching of Yoga that makes it accessible to all students of all ages, constitution, and physical ability. To this end, Iyengar is famous for introducing the use of tools (props) in the practice of Yoga.
B.K.S. Iyengar considered his body as a laboratory, investigated it thoroughly and developed a very accurate teaching and practice method, so that his teachers could guide all the students in the best way.
The peculiar genius of B.K.S. Iyengar lies in his ability to articulate, in very precise details, the exact alignment required to properly execute an Asana, so that a constant practice and the subsequent refinement process - enhancing body, mind and spirit - awaken the intelligence of each single cell.
The body thus becomes a true instrument and object of meditation, predisposing practitioners to control the senses, developing a concentrated and meditative mind.
On 20 August 2014 he left the body.
