Hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" and considered to be one of the most important masters in the world, B.K.S. Iyengar is credited with bringing the ancient art of yoga to the modern masses. Born in Southern India 100 years ago, the legendary guru is the founder of Iyengar Yoga, a form of Hatha known for its rigorous mental and spiritual focus. Filmed before he passed away in 2014, this intimate portrait centres on Iyengar's legacy and teachings, while illuminating the life-changing holistic methods at the core of his practice. Whether you're a seasoned devotee or simply looking for self-care motivation, this profound film is bound to steer you on the path to mindfulness.

"The late B.K.S. Iyengar’s contributions to and influence upon the world of yoga are detailed in this comprehensive documentary. The then 90-year-old Iyengar (still doing backbends) discusses the roots of his form of hatha yoga, which involves the use of props in asanas (poses), and illuminates the deeply considered philosophy underscoring his holistic pursuit of mental, physical, and spiritual health. His popularization of yoga is illustrated through examples interwoven as threads throughout the film, ranging from girls at a Mumbai orphanage benefitting from practice to archival footage of western TV show hosts interviewing Iyengar as a curiosity. However, this portrait isn’t a deification: while some interviewees speak highly of him, others note his flaws, and his brusque, often critical approach is also on display. Needless to say, it’s essential viewing for practitioners." - Craig Takeuchi, straight.com
