Although his full name was probably never thrown into poems or songs, Bellur Krishnamacharya Sundararaja Iyengar (B.K.S.) certainly left his mark. Iyengar began practicing yoga in India in 1935 before moving west during the 1950s, where he taught his version of the ancient discipline. Eventually, those teachings reached San Diego, where, in 1979, they surfaced in the form of Iyengar Yoga of San Diego.
Today, the facility employs a roster of certified instructors to lead groups through multiple levels of Iyengar yoga. Through the perfection of yoga postures, or asanas, and yogic breathing, the facility strives to coordinate the mind with every part of the body and, according to their philosophy, connect the individual spirit with the universal spirit.
