The Living Tradition of Iyengar Yoga

The living tradition of Iyengar Yoga is carried on through the family of BKS Iyengar, aka Guruji, and thousands of students and teachers all over the world. His daughter Geeta was a skilled, powerful, and deeply devoted teacher of Iyengar Yoga; legendary and inspiring. She was a pioneer for women’s yoga. She passed away December 2018. Both Guruji and Geetaji practiced with intensity and devotion until their death. His brilliant son Prashant, who teaches only in India, and granddaughter Abhijata, who teaches at Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) and worldwide, continue to share these incredible teachings, and if you should ever have a chance to study with them, don’t miss it! Along with the Iyengar family, there’s also a widespread, deeply devoted international community of rigorously trained and tested Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers (CIYTs) and students, carrying the torch of this potent and precious yoga lineage into the future. Among these are two HDY teachers, Avery Kalapa and Sage Harrington, who were certified in 2018.
