Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, originally inspired by his teacher Sri T. Krishnamacharya, a classically trained Hindu scholar and yoga master, developed a style of yoga that is characterized in the practice of asana and pranayama with the innovative approach emphasizing precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timing and the use of props which help the practitioner achieve perfection in any asana. This approach has allowed people of varying ages, levels of health and fitness to experience the benefits of yoga which sustained practice can bring: the ability to face the physical, mental and emotional challenges of contemporary life with strength, vitality, mobility, thoughtfulness and equanimity. This intelligent practice develops the ability to grow and separate what is worthwhile and productive from what to leave behind and provides a framework to live in harmony with others, our environment and ourselves.

Sri B.K.S. Iyengar was the foremost authority on the subject of yoga until his death in August 2014 at the age of 95. He authored a number of classic texts on yoga including Light on Yoga and Light on Pranayama. Until shortly before his death, he practiced and taught yoga at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute in Pune, India along with his daughter Geeta,  son Prashant, granddaughter Abhijata, and a host of other highly skilled teachers that learned at the feet of Sri B.K.S. Iyengar.
