Iyengar Yoga: Its Origins

It was Sage Patanjali who wrote the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. This treatise covered the study of 196 yoga sutras, or aphorisms. In order to make these sutras accessible to all, B.K.S. Iyengar has revisited them. His interpretations remain faithful to the original concepts, while bringing them to a level all can understand and practice.
