“This is a film made by McPetruk in 1938 showing and shows Iyengar demonstrating yoga.

This is obviously well before Iyengar dropped the vinyasa aspect from his practice and rebranded it as “Iyengar Yoga”, putting greater emphasis on alignment.”
> An odd, sweet, beautiful one “Happy 90th, Guruji.”
