I’m taking a moment to share in the loss of Mr. Iyengar. I became a student at Susquehanna a few years ago after injuring my knee. It was my first experience with yoga and to this day Iyengar is all I know. I credit the “art and science” of Iyengar, and Mr. Iyengar’s wonderful students, with helping me regain full range of motion and reach optimal health.
May Mr. Iyengar enjoy his rest, and may his legacy minister to generations to come.

“Only his body has ended. One person’s efforts from inside out, changed the acceptance of yoga throughout the world. Nothing was hidden, from the time he began to practice, to his illness and death. Even last night he was telling Abhijata (his grand daughter), “I have shown you all these things, now realize them for yourself.” What he has given cannot be encompassed by words. If a disciple is more developed, then that person will understand. What can be said in words, is that he was precious to us.”
