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.

Lili has been studying and practising yoga in China & UK for 20 years, and teaching since 2007 (7 years in the UK). She draws inspiration from her training within established, classical yoga systems that focus on alignment, hatha vinyasa in its gentler form, yin, yin/yang, and restorative yoga styles, pranayama and meditation; blending the roots of Chinese healing traditions into a more holistic practice. For her, practice covers not just the physical aspects of yoga but also aligning and unblocking the bodies meridian energy pathways to release Qi energy (prana) which flows through the bodies energy highway, bringing the mind, body and spirit back into balance. “I am continually humbled by my students and teachers, my aim is always to teach from the heart and from the idea that yoga is the art of living, listening and learning, to embody this deeply spiritual tradition” – Lili Chen.
