Quotes from BKS Iyengar

The teachings of BKS Iyengar have informed and inspired the teaching at this studio since our inception in 2002. Below are just a few of the yoga gems he has shared with his students over the years:

  • Yoga is as old and traditional as civilization; yet it persists in modern society as a means to achieving essential vitality. Yoga demands that we develop not only strength in body, but attention and awareness in mind. The yogi knows that the physical body is not only a temple for our soul, but the means by which we embark on the inward journey toward the core.
  • The lotus grows in muddy waters but this flower does not show any trace of it.  So, we have to live in the world.
  • In whatever position one is in, or in whatever condition in life one is placed, one must find balance.  Balance is the state of the present – the here and now.  If you balance in the present, you are living in eternity.
