Tributes for Mr. Iyengar

Many, many tributes and stories have been written and printed remembering and celebrating the life of BKS Iyengar. Our National Association (IYNAUS) has kindly put together a list of many of these for us to read and share. Please feel free to use these links.

The basic purpose of any regional Iyengar Yoga association is to share and spread the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar in local communities. IYAMW is happy to offer events and support to students for further learning of Iyengar Yoga throughout the Midwest region. Find out how you can join IYAMW in its effort to spread the joy of Iyengar Yoga...
