BKS Iyengar
updated: Aug 20, 2014, 8:41 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

BKS Iyengar - the man who wrote Light On Yoga, and inspired hundreds of thousands of people with his yoga teachings - died in India in the early hours of today, August 20. He was 95 years of age! To mourn and honor this great teacher the Iyengar Yoga Studio of Santa Barbara - Mr Iyengar himself gave great support and encouragement to this Studio when it opened 7 years ago - will be closed for 48 hours. In accordance with tradition no business will be conducted there for two days as a mark of respect to this unique man without whom there would be no Iyengar yoga. The Iyengar Yoga Studio of Santa Barbara will re-open this Friday (8/22 ). A makeshift memorial has grown all day in the Studio doorway on the 2700 block of De La Vina. There will be commemorative ceremonies in the near future.
