Documentary to celebrate BKS Iyengar’s 100th Birth Anniversary

Posted by Anna Timms on Tuesday December 26th, 2017 at 7:23pm

Dear Sādhaka,

Bulletin Board Poster

On December 14, 2018, we will be celebrating the birth centenary of our Beloved Guruji. Each of us has been immensely touched by him and his teachings in many different ways. This is irrespective of the amount of time that we may have spent with him. Some of us have spent years under him, some a few glimpses and many who have still been transformed by just following his path.

On this momentous occasion, Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI), Light on Yoga Research Trust (LOYRT) – Mumbai, and Different Strokes Communications are jointly embarking on a project to record the students’ impressions on the impact that Guruji has had on their lives. This will be a purely crowdsourced project, where each and every one of us will have a chance to become a filmmaker and have your unique voice reach out towards our Iyengar Yoga family worldwide!

All the students of Iyengar Yoga are welcome to participate in this project where all you need to do is record yourself talking in front of a camera and share with us – on how Guruji and his teachings have influenced and inspired you and how they have created an impact on the course of your life. We shall weave a tapestry of the most unique and inspiring voices, bringing us all much closer than ever before, and proving how all of us are connected in this journey together.  All details on participation, shooting of your video, submissions, etc., can be found on
Please find attached a poster which you can share with your students / fellow practitioners at your institute on the bulletin board. We look forward to your participation.
