Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar the legendary yogacharya leaves behind a legacy, which breathed new life into yoga and made it popular all over the world. Born in a poor Iyengar family in Bellur, through out his childhood he struggled with malaria, tuberculosis, typhoid, fever and malnutrition. A major turning point in his life awaked him in 1934 when he moved to Mysore and began to practice yoga under the tutelage of his brother-In-law Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya and the rest as they say is history.
Neeru Kathpal started learning Iyengar Yoga in 1999. She is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and a regular practitioner for over 15 years now. She dedicated herself to Iyengar Yoga in 2000 and began teaching in 2010. Neeru has had the great fortune to receive her teacher-training certificate from BKS Iyengar.
