Vintage 70s Clip of B.K.S. Iyengar’s Asana Practice

Vintage 70s Video Clip of B.K.S. Iyengar’s Asana Practice

Before the current celebrity yogi focus that has been so much in the media recently, there was Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar, or B.K.S. Iyengar—a holy man, creator of Iyengar yoga, author of many yoga and spirituality tomes including “Light on Yoga,” and one of the most esteemed and well-loved yoga teachers in the world.

In this video, Iyengar, a man in his 60s and fondly called “Guruji,” demonstrates and expresses his purest intentions in the form of asana, with nothing but the floor, space, gravity, and himself as tools.

Many of us weren’t around or into yoga early enough to witness how Guruji himself practiced, so this barebones, unembellished rendering of long, single takes of the yoga guru during his moving meditation is both a privilege and delight to see.

About

 Yoga Lily

  (97 articles)

Lily is an experienced certified yoga teacher, she teaches the traditional, relaxing and invigorating Yoga as practiced in Asia for thousands of years; it is a little more holistic in nature, meaning, it covers not just the physical aspects of yogic practice (like asanas or poses, mudras or locks), but also the breathing, meditation, mindfulness and restorative techniques sometimes lacking in the modern practice. Yoga is part of who she is, from practicing yoga in the parks of China as a child, to graduating from YogiYoga(China) Institute in 2007, Lily has loved helping and inspiring people ever since. You can help balance your mind and body to give a sense of wholeness and great happiness.
