Happy Birthday Mr Iyengar!

“The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

Today marks the 95th birthday of Mr BKS Iyengar. 95th!

And this man still does his asanas daily, an icon of discipline and how beneficial yoga is when practiced properly and safely! He still holds his Headstand for half an hour everyday, at 95!

This is beyond my imagination, as I have a picture of an old man lying on the bed with tubes or hunched over when he walks, or on a wheelchair when one says 95.

Not one of such sharp and sound mind, an able bodied man.

I woke up happy today knowing it’s his birthday and sang a little birthday song for him on my uke 🙂 I know it sounds a tad silly, but I am so so so grateful for him for helping us to understand yoga better!

Here are 2 articles on him on his birthday: The first one gives me the chills. Bbbbrrrrrrr…
