Poses 33/52: Light on Yoga

scan0001

It is important to acknowledge that the global yoga community was fundamentally changed yesterday by the death of BKS Iyengar. He was one of the, if not the most influential, individuals responsible for bringing yoga to the Western world. His book, Light on Yoga, is the foundation for virtually every single hatha yoga class.

This book is staple for most yoga teachers. However, one of my favorite Iyengar quotes is: “That’s a dead book. I’m a living teacher.”

He always considered himself a student first that was constantly evolving. If anyone owns a copy of this book, you know the crazy photos. See:
