This past December, I attended the Centenary Celebrations for B.K.S. Iyengar in Pune, India. Although I’ve taken more than 7 trips to India, this was my first time to the Iyengar Institute, the heart of Iyengar Yoga. It was an amazing gathering of 1,300 people representing 56 different countries showing the diverse populations that were there to mark the 100th anniversary of Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengars birth.
Geeta demonstrated a lifetime of sadhana — sincere effort, preparation, and devotion to spiritual guidance. She had promised she would teach for her Father’s 100th birthday on December 14, but nothing more. She kept her promise despite failing health. She passed away peacefully in the early morning of 16 December in her home.
