Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of the late yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar. Mr iyengar began teaching in Pune, India, in 1936 at the age of 18 and continued to teach and practice until his death in 2014. His life and work inspires students all over the world. His daughter, Geeta, and his son, Prashant, are also accomplished teachers and authors of yoga texts.
The Iyengar family’s teachings are deeply grounded in the yoga sutras of Patanjali, an ancient summation of the path of yoga considered to be at least 2,500 years old.
