Birthday Week!

This week is B.K.S. Iyengar's 94 birthday!  Here he is at almost 94 practicing Sirsasana with his granddaughter.  When I look at this photo I immediatly feel the need to go upside down!  Inversions are a major part of the Iyengar method of Yoga. 

Inversions such Sirsasana, Sarvangasana,  Adho Mukha Vrksasana are all important to keep not only the physical body healthy,  but the mental body as well.  Everytime I go into a handstand,  my perception is completely reversed.  Everyone of us could use a little change in perception now and then.  To see life in a different light,  to access the part of you that is still a kid again. 

Today,  think about one thing that makes you feel young,  not only in body,  but in spirit and do it!!  Happy bday on Friday Guruji!!!

Join us at the Iyengar Yoga Center of Denver this for a special class taught by Craig.  It begins at 5:30 and we will be doing 108 Sun Salutations!!www.iyengaryogacenter.com
