B.K.S. Iyengar

Yogashtha

"One who is firmly and completely established in Yoga"

Stephen King, the author of a book, "On writing" says, "If you want to understand any person, look into yourself. Dig into your life that has gone by. Look for deep-rooted essence of him in your life. Clean up the soil around the roots and you will realise that the character you are trying to look for outside is actually a substance within yourself.

An Interview with Leslie Peters

Bee: How did you get started with yoga?

Leslie: For Christmas in 1990 I was given a gift certificate for an Introductory Course and a month of unlimited classes at the B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles.  On January 9, 1991, I found myself in the company of a dozen people of all sizes and ages, sitting in a circle on the floor sharing our names, degree of yoga experience, as well as our list of aches, pains, and injuries.  Gloria Goldberg was our teacher, and after everyone had spoken she made the following statement; “Yoga will change your life.  I don’t know how and I don’t know when, but I promise you it will.”  I remember thinking, “Well, it probably won’t change my life.”
