Iyengar, Yoga, and Traditional Chinese Medicine

24 Hours logoI am a relatively new student of yoga, under four years, and I had known only very fundamental knowledge about BKS Iyengar. I knew that he was one of yoga’s most important and well-known teachers, having brought yoga to the West, and I knew that he recommended the use of props to assist safe practice. 

This man was a great teacher and a passionate and dedicated yogi who could still do inversions into his 90s. He died at age 95, but his legacy lives on, and as I researched about his life and his teachings, I came to realize that there are many similarities to TCM.
