Yoga community mourns the death of Geeta Iyengar days after the end of the 100th birthday celebration of her father BKS Iyengar
In late December the world lost another great yoga teacher, Geeta Iyengar, an acclaimed yoga teacher, yogi, author and Ayurvedic doctor. Although ill in health of recent years, she had been teaching classes all week long at her fathers commerative celebrations in India just days before she died. It was very much a swan song of an ending. Although I never had the good fortune to be taught by her, my teachers were taught by her directly in the past and this year, and I have been practising and conveying her teachings in classes and in my personal practice. She had written many books during her lifetime and her most renowned book 'Yoga a Gem for Women' was a seminal book for women in yoga. It was the first of its kind to highlight the importance of Yoga in a woman's life cycle and it gave a variety of asanas with their physical and curative values. The book has been instrumental in the teaching curriculum for Iyengar teacher assessments and it gives simple steps for advancing from a purely physical plane to a higher level of consciousness. She was an inspiration to us all.
