A child first learns to crawl, then stand, then walk and then finally run. Similarly, it is only with regular mindful practice, tremendous discipline and time that one betters yoga asanas, says late yoga guru Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar, popularly known as B K S Iyengar, in this inspiring video.

Considered as one of the foremost gurus of yoga, he eloquently spoke about how yoga is all about “bringing your attention along with awareness to each and every cell of your body”.

In his words: “Asanas are meant to connect the physical and factual wisdom of the body with the analytical mind and to coordinate with cooperation among the body and mind. If there is coordination, then the person is on the spiritual level”.

Iyengar never started an asana with the body, but from the mind or self which opened his “gateway of awareness”. He took to yoga in his teenage years under the guidance of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who followed Patanjali’s sutras. Born in Bellur, Karnataka, the yoga expert settled in Pune when he started teaching in Mumbai through the 1950s and 1960s to a select group of Parsis and Gujaratis.
