Iyengar Inspiration

by Christina on June 5, 2013

I’m on vacation and starting to feel alive again! So far my big project has been getting back into a daily mysore practice. What is it about the soreness of a deep yoga practice that feels so good? I love being barely able to move when I wake up. Love it!

I hope this 22 minute trailer on Iyengar inspires you as it much as it did me yesterday. The filmmakers are seeking the final funds to finish the film and I hope they reach their goal cause now I want to see the whole film. 

“As long as you are maintaining that stable mind in all the upheavals of your emotional life, for me, that is Samadhi (union with God).” ~Iyengar

“The body is the most powerful means to transform a human being.” ~Iyengar teacher in film

Need more? Here’s an old Iyengar post for additional inspiration. And here are some Iyengar oldies but goodies:

“Freedom. From each and every part of our body. Until freedom is gained in the body, freedom of the mind is a farfetched idea.” 

“Make the mind feel the stretch. Awaken the mind of the little toe.” 

“If you keep your armpits open, you won’t get depressed.” 

“When confronted with difficulty, take an action, no matter how small.”
