Yoga Guru, friend, teacher of thousands, and one of the torches carrying the legacy of Krishnamacharya. But his torch will live on in the many lives he had touched, imparted his knowledge towards, and shone light on.
“[A yogi] accepts death happily and believes in rebirth as he strives to be finer and finer in his way of thinking and acting. When seeds are sown, the plants come up, and when the plants are mature they give new seeds to sow for the next crop and the next harvest. Thus the yogi develops the quality of his life so that a good seed may emerge, and his next life may bring the harvest of spiritual fragrance.”
–B.K.S Iyengar, The Tree of Yoga
“In yoga, physical movements alone are unimportant. Yoga is an all-around development, where we have to bring the body, the senses, organs of perception, mind, intelligence, consciousness, and conscience–these are the various vehicles of this human system.”
