B.K.S. Iyengar




B.K.S. Iyengar has been named by Time magazine as "one of the 100 most influential people in the world". Mr. Iyengar is widely regarded as the foremost living yoga teacher. His approach develops self-awareness through precision in movement and attention to the subtleties of body, breath, mind, and spirit.

Is Yoga All the Exercise You Need?

What is clear from this analysis is that yoga should no longer be seen as something even remotely 'fringey', or even as something that's only good for improving flexibility. Rather, this research makes it clear that yoga deserves a permanent place at the health and fitness table, alongside other forms of exercise that may be more familiar to most people.
