Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar (14 December 1918 - 20 August 2014), better known as B.K.S. Iyengar, was the founder of the style of yoga known as "Iyengar Yoga" and was considered one of the foremost yoga teachers in the world. He was the author of many books on yoga practice and philosophy including Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Light on Life. Iyengar was one of the earliest students of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who is often referred to as "the father of modern yoga". He has been credited with popularizing yoga, first in India and then around the world.

The Indian government awarded Iyengar the Padma Shri in 1991, the Padma Bhushan in 2002 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2014. In 2004, Iyengar was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gita of Yoga
Reviewed in India on 24 October 2018
Being a health and fitness enthusiast I have cam across many books on health and fitness but LIGHT ON YOGA became one of my favourite book.Not because it is written by BKS IYENGER But for the techniques elaborated in this book.The language is so simple and all the poses are so explainatory that even if you are a newbie you will understand every thing.
I am a fitness freak and doing yoga since ages but this book realised me that I am a newbie and I don't know any thing.
Well the most hatred thing in this world is when someone kick to break your ego.
And Sir BKS IYENGAR Sir realised me that I am nothing. I can simply bet that even if you are a yoga teacher you might not have heard about many yoga poses mentioned in this book.
Light On Yoga is a GITA OF YOGA.This book deserves a huge respect .
Go for it guys ! If you are a yoga lover.
This huge book contains almost 544pages and each and every page is a yoga teacher itself.
Totally worth.Hey Amazon can we have 6stars for this book?
