How to Tie an Iyengar Yoga Wall Rope
Yogacharya Iyengar’s Last Interview
Samadhi – BKS Iyengar
This is a beautiful, if scratchy video of BKS Iyengar, made when he was at his prime in 1977 when he was only 59!
In India, sacred geometric patterns, known as yantra, are used as an aid to meditation and to call up aspects of divinity. B.K.S. Iyengar describes asana, each one of which also has it’s own precise geometrical shape, as meditation in action. This film combines images based on film footage of B.K.S. Iyengar in practice, traditional Vedic yantras and mandalas, and devotional Indian music.

Dr. Geeta S. Iyengar on Yoga Kurunta
In Iyengar yoga, working with ropes is refer to as Yoga Kurunta (a Kurunta is a puppet in South Indian theater). We are presenting here a short segment from a 30 minutes video we recorded in Pune in 2009 with Dr Geeta S. Iyengar. As always, Geetaji is able to skillfully link the advantages of using the props (the ropes in this case) for the physical benefit of our practice with the deeper philosophical meaning of using the yogic practice to progress on the path of freedom from bondage.

It demonstrates how Yoga can be a comprehensive set of tools for life, for realigning one’s mind and body in equilibrium and for accessing a higher sense of consciousness and awareness.
