Thank you for your beautiful talk! Now that B.K.S. Iyengar has passed on to other dimensions, may his light shine on with us <3

@Yogarosales find the best Iyengar teachers in Spain and shadow them. They will be the ones to get you into the institute. You have to register through Spanish Iyengar association. Jose Maria(sp?) is a GREAT teacher out there to find. Good luck. Love from Saskatoon

Ryan thank you for your contribution to yoga and to the children that need it most. I took a few of your classes while in Saskatoon and now I live in Ontario and was thrilled to see you on this website. I study iyengar yoga at the moment but have also dabbled in Jivamukti as well. My class is filled with students that are 40 plus and it's a level 3 which I find hard but they inspire me. Thanks Ryan for you talk. Will look for more yoga videos
