B.K.S. Iyengar has devoted his life to the practice and study of yoga. It was B.K.S. Iyengar’s unique teaching style, bringing precision and clarity to the practice, as well as a mindset of ‘yoga for all’, which has made it into a worldwide phenomenon.
Each sūtra is presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration and English translation, followed by B.K.S. Iyengar’s unique commentary and authority only he can bring to the work.
B.K.S.
