BSK Iyengar died at the age of 96 on 20 November.
I, unfortunately, am to young to have met Iyengar and my brief encounter with Iyengar style yoga is limited to a weekend workshop. However, not a day goes by without having to refer to his books more than any other book on yoga and asanas. He is always precise and thorough, pretty much the yoga style he taught. He will always be a teacher to me through his books. He was a central piece of disseminating yoga to millions of people.
Here is a short article about his life and contribution to yoga.
Namaste to him from the bottom of my heart!
