CELEBRATING 33 YEARS!

IT IS WHILE PRACTICING YOGA
ASANAS THAT YOU LEARN THE
ART OF ADJUSTMENT.
--B.K.S. IYENGAR

B.K.S. IYENGAR WAS A LIVING EMBODIMENT OF YOGA.
HIS EXPERTISE WAS UNPARALLELED AND HE INSPIRED
THE YOGA CIRCLE STAFF WITH HIS LIFELONG
COMMITMENT TO THE ART AND SCIENCE OF YOGA.

THE STUDENT IN THE POSE HAS TO HAVE AN
INNER JOURNEY. AT THE BEGINNING, THE POSE
IS AN OUTER JOURNEY.
--GEETA IYENGAR, LAS VEGAS 2007, THE JOURNEY
