B.K.S. Iyengar passed away today. His influence on the practice of yoga, especially as we know it in the West, is truly immeasurable. If you don’t know him too well and you have the time, I highly recommend Google searching his most memorable quotes to get a feel for his immense wisdom. There’s also a mini documentary about him here.
A great teacher has departed, but he hasn’t truly left us. As Iyengar himself said, “Life moves. There’s no death. There’s no birth. Life is like a river… moving without any stop.”
