B.K. Iyengar, yoga guru died

Mr.B.K.S.Iyengar, 95 year old died in a hospital in Pune on Wednesday August 20, 2014.
His name is associated with Yoga. He started Krishnamachari Yoga Mandira , Chennai which brought yoga for people other than elite public. This is situate near my house in Chennai.
He took pains to see that yoga is practised properly. Now yoga is introduced in Chennai Medical College, prisons, companies. Companies started introducing yoga in their training programs. He is known to be an innovator in teaching and practising yoga.
He was very active that in his nineties also he use to climb four stair to reach the auditorium while the youngsters used the lifts.
He use to tell his students "do not run after students. If you do yoga properly students will come after you."
May his soul rest in peace.
