As a young man, B.K.S. Iyengar searched out an in-depth understanding of the self through the practice of yoga. Awakened by the transformative experience, he adapted the practice and sought to introduce the world to a form of yoga that was deeper, more intellectual—a science, art, and philosophy—one that emphasizes complete alignment of the body, mind, breath, and soul.
Motivated by the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to strive for complete alignment, his Iyengar method prided itself on making yoga accessible to every age and every body. From there it spread and started transforming all manner of lives across continents.
