In honour of BKS Iyengar 1918-2014

“Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed.” 
― B.K.S. IyengarLight on Life

Sad news this morning – the news of Guruji’s passing at the ripe age of 95.

My deepest sympathy and condolences go out to his family and loved ones. My heart and love goes out to all members of this incredible, global Iyengar community, a community that he inadvertently started so many decades ago with the humblest of beginnings and intentions.

Words cannot begin to express the extent of my own personal gratitude towards the man and his legacy. I am humbled by his greatness and deeply treasure his teachings, writings, philosophy and example that he has left behind. It is a most profound honour to continue his teachings and be a part of this great man’s vision of yoga.

Guruji, even though we never met, you will forever be in my heart.
