“You want to be a better, intelligent man. I want also to be a better, intelligent man.”
“Yoga can take a man into two different ways of living… Enjoyment of life, or liberation in life.” -BKS Iyengar
Physical health promotes mental and emotional stability.
Personal stability extends outward.
There is an ancient system that enhances the body, balances the mind, and helps develop self-improvement in all aspects of a human.
Unfortunately, in our zip-around-all-the-time world, things can get misinterpreted and commodified. Yoga has run rampant through consumer culture and is being branded and mutated into various forms.
Sometimes, it is good to go back to the roots to see if we have strayed too far from the original path.
BKS Iyengar is a cultural conduit into the principle roots of yoga. This man has devoted a life of experience to his personal and community improvement by the use of yogic practice and philosophy.
