In 1952, Iyengar befriended the violinist Yehudi Menuhin. In 1966, Iyengar published his first book, Light on Yoga. It became an international best-seller. Menuhin gave him the opportunity that transformed Iyengar from a comparatively obscure Indian yoga teacher into an international guru. Because Iyengar had taught the famous philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti, he was asked to go to Bombay to meet Menuhin, who was known to be interested in yoga. Menuhin said he was very tired and could spare only five minutes. Iyengar told him to lie down in Savasana (on his back), and he fell asleep. After one hour, Menuhin awoke refreshed and spent another two hours with Iyengar.

Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, and described in his bestselling 1966 book Light on Yoga, is a form of yoga as exercise that has an emphasis on detail. Iyengar, and described in his bestselling 1966 book Light on Yoga, is a form of yoga as exercise that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of yoga postures (asanas). The style often makes use of props, such as belts, blocks, and blankets, as aids in performing the asanas.

  • This is a truly classic and the most comprehensive text of Yogasanas. What I liked about the book in addition to intricately detailed steps of achieving poses is -- (1) For difficult poses, it also gives alternative preparatory poses that a beginner can start following to graduate to the actual pose, (2) Towards the end of the book, Shri Iyengar has given week-by-week yoasana guide to start following and go from being a complete novice to the most advanced practitioner. On average it takes 3-6 months to achieve decent skill, and up to 2-3 years to become a master. (3) Also towards the end of the book are given specific Yogasanas to be done for specific health problems, like migraines, heart trouble, high/low BP, backaches etc. (4) The guidance given on how to practice Yogasanas and Pranayama together is excellent. It shows the depth at which Iyengar himself had studied the theory of yoga and pranayama!


    People who have criticized this book saying it's not for the beginners, should note my point #2 above. I think these people have not paid attention to ALL the sections in the book, and hence have felt discouraged.

    The only thing I wish was there was categorization of Asanas according to their focus muscle or organ groups, e.g., "back-bending", "forward bending", "side twisting", "inverted poses" etc.

    But apart from this, the book is gold and a must have possession for anyone who's serious about following Yoga! Two thumbs up!

  • Aside from the fundamental knowledge that I've received from the yoga asanas out of this book, the Introduction (Part 1) was such an enjoyable read! Part One touched on everything in the stages of yoga (from the niyamas and yamas to samadhi) and how to obtain enlightenment. I felt B.K.S Iyengar was very compassionate and loving in his words to the reader. Light on Yoga is definitely a comprehensive read for the yogi and provided the photographs of each posture (along with the reasoning behind each asana (dedication), and how to safely get into the posture and the effects each posture has on the body. There is also an entire section dedicated to pranayama and the technique. Highly recommended read for those on the spiritual path of yoga.

  • My massage therapist is also a certified Iyengar yoga instructor. After a year plus of massage therapy, she suggested that I might have greater benefits working with her one on one in Iyengar yoga. In my early 60s, I have had lumber surgery and a cervical spine fusion. I was very hesitant to try this but she has taken additional classes in working with people like me. In order to learn more about Iyengar yoga, I purchased this book - it was very illuminating and answered many of my questions - the lead one of which was 'what am I getting into'........Well I am several weeks into working with my instructor and it was a good decision for me, between the use of blocks, the yoga strap, the 3-minute-egg, the folding chair, the ropes anchored to the wall, and an amazing, patient teacher, I can do this. I recommend this text by the founder of Iyengar yoga and I know that I will reread it again. PS: I had studied t'ai chi for several years back in the '90s (remember those?) before life became too complicated - unfortunately, it is hard to find t'ai chi classes in the suburbs and Iyengar yoga is fulfilling spiritually as well as physically - if you were a t'ai chi player and miss the stillness of the moving meditations, look into Iyengar yoga.

  • This book is wonderful! I'd like to start by saying Yoga is an entire system, not just Hatha Yoga poses.

    Not only does this book provide the Asanas (Hatha Yoga poses) preformed perfectly by the author, but BKS also does an excellent job explaining the Yogic philosophy (which is a must if you are looking to receive the full benefit of Hatha Yoga).

    If you fully apply the teachings in this book daily you will become far more than just a flexible body (:

    Apply as much or as little as youd like but rest assured that this book and the Master that wrote it knows what he's talking about and has made a convenient map for you to follow that even includes an 'Asana Courses' in the appendix that map out your entire 300 week Hatha Yoga regimen. Give the book a try, you will be glad you did.

  • This book is a treasure trove of information for beginning yogis such as myself!

    The section that talks about ailments and the yoga poses to alleviate said issues was worth the price of this book alone!

  • This book helps inspire my practice over and over again. Just flip it open to some amazing pretzelly pose, and then read through the instructions for how to get there. I may never get to the pretzel demonstrated, but enjoy the process of breathing my way into each of the stages on the way there. Definitely helps when I've run out of ideas for a class I need to teach.

  • This book is a classic yoga manual. If you are very serious about yoga this is a must for your bookshelf. There is a long introduction that goes into great detail about the philosophy and goals of yoga. Yoga is much more than just asana practice, and if you are unfamiliar with this concept this part should help you to understand it.

    Each pose has the real (Sanskrit) name, a photo or group of photos, and a detailed description of step by step how to properly practice the pose. The only thing is that the photos are small, and a little bit grainy (you can tell that they were taken a log time ago). But they are enough to see the correct form. Iyengar is a true yoga master. I have also enjoyed his book "Light on Life." The book also includes instructions for pranayama.

    The poses go in order from beginner to advanced, and the advanced ones seem VERY advanced. At the end are recommendations for asana practices, and asanas for specific medical conditions.
