A Hungarian language edition of my book, The Woman's Yoga Book has recently been published by Filosz-Humán Bt. Forrai Réka wrote the following about her experiences translating the book:
My copy of the Women's Yoga Book is worn: it had seen coffee and tea, chocolate and strawberry, it gathered dust and mango stains in India and grass and raindrops in my garden in Denmark. It has been with me on beaches and airports, in cafés and restaurants, and, of course, on (and under) my yoga mat.
The reason for this is that I have translated Bobby's book into Hungarian. I did this on the side, so it took me over a year to finish it. I have often used it's sequences for my practice and teaching beforehand, but when I started the translation project, I decided that for the entire time it will take me to translate the book, I will build my whole practice on its guidelines. I thought the more intimate my knowledge of the book, the better the translation will be.
I did this mostly in these ways:
- I identified and practiced the sequences that best suited my own cycle: as it was always pretty random and abundant, I used the sequences for excessive and irregular menstruation.
- I always practiced the post-menstrual sequence for 3 days after my period.
- I tried to let my monthly cycle to guide my practice: I gradually proceeded towards more challenging poses as I was getting closer to ovulation and inversely, aimed to unwind as I headed towards menstruation.
- In between periods: Inversions, inversions, inversions!
- I tried to follow some of the lifestyle advices of the book as well: for example, I tried to stay home and quiet at least on the first day of my period, and use this time for reflecting ad relaxing.
This experiment turned out to be a transformative experience.
I am an Iyengar yoga teacher and practitioner for 9 years so it is no surprise to me that Iyengar yoga "works". Still, when after 6-7 month my cycle started changing, I was amazed and delighted. Not only had it gradually become much more regular but also shorter with significantly reduced blood loss. Before, I used to have a cycle anywhere between 27 to 35 days, with a menstruation that went on for 8 days. Now, my cycle is almost always 29 days, it lasts maximum 6 days, and I would say I loose maybe 1/3 less blood than I did before.
And changes didn't stop at the physiological level. Once my cycle got into 'alignment' , my trust in the cyclicality of all things in life deepened with it. As my body got tuned to be in harmony with the up-and-down, begin-end-begin rhythms of nature, my mind opened to them too.
The translation is now done, but the book stays my lifelong friend.

posted August 20, 2014
Thank you to Richard Jonas for sharing his life-sketch of B.K.S. Iyengar.
The life and work of Yogacharya B. K.S. Iyengar are of epic proportions.
Sri Iyengar is credited with bringing the ancient art of yoga into the modern world. His extensive demonstrations and teachings planted the seeds for the phenomenal flowering of yoga in the West over the last 30 years, while also winning innumerable converts around the world – including in India, where yoga began.
The method he refined for eight decades is one of the world's most widely-practiced yogas, with Iyengar Yoga institutes and associations, teachers and students in 77 countries around the world — while each morning he reaffirmed his lifelong commitment to yoga with his own personal practice, surrounded and observed by generations of his admiring students, at the method's mother institute in Pune.
Mr. Iyengar died August 20 in Pune aged 95, after a brief illness.
His seminal Light on Yoga, first published in 1966 and continually in print since, is the Bible of yoga for teachers and students of all methods. His 2005 international bestseller Light on Life summed up a lifetime of teaching and practice, advising readers on the journey to wholeness, inner peace and ultimate freedom. And he continued to publish: his most recent work, Core of the Yoga Sutras, was released in 2012.
Well into his 95th year, he continued to teach around the world. In 2005 he led an International Yoga Conference sponsored by Yoga Journal magazine in Estes Park, Colorado, in the United States. His groundbreaking journeys to Russia, where he taught in Moscow in 2009, and to China, where he taught in Guangzhou in 2011, sparked the burgeoning interest in yoga in these countries.
Called the "Michelangelo of yoga" and the "king of yogis," included in Time magazine's global list of the world's 100 most influential people and — only the most recent of his dozens of honors — named a recipient of the Padma Vibhushan, the second highest civil award in India, B. K. S. Iyengar, universally acknowledged as the world's greatest yoga teacher, remained its most knowledgeable and respected practitioner.
Mr. Iyengar pioneered countless innovative ideas during his eight decades of teaching; perhaps the most revolutionary is that yoga is for everyone. With this in mind, he developed and refined a complete array of yoga props, including ropes, belts and blocks, which allow practitioners of all ages and levels of fitness to achieve correct alignment, a deeper penetration into the posture as well as a longer stay, helping them to experience the state of Meditation in Action. It is Mr. Iyengar's unique perspective that the yoga asanas (postures) and Pranayamas (control of the breath) can be a template to explore and experience each of the other limbs of Astanga Yoga, including those of the Innermost Journey.
"Iyengar" is officially recognized by the Oxford English Dictionary with this definition: "Noun: A type of Hatha Yoga focusing on the correct alignment of the body, making use of straps, wooden blocks, and other objects nas aids in achieving the correct postures. Origin: Named after B. K. S. Iyengar (born 1918), the India yoga teacher who devised this method."
For residents of Bellur, the definition following the name B.K.S. Iyengar might well be "benefactor".
Over the last decade, he led a transformation of his ancestral village, building a free hospital, water treatment facilities, India's first temple dedicated to Patanjali, and a free school which supplies uniforms, books and a hot lunch, not just to the children of Bellur but to those of surrounding villages. In addition to the primary school, he also established a secondary school and a tertiary college.
It was in Bellur that Yogacarya Iyengar's glorious life story had its humble beginning.
There he was born, into a large family and a poor one, on December 14, 1918. The village is located in the Kolar District of Karnataka, India. The family migrated to Bangalore in 1923; his father died in 1927.
At the young age of fifteen, Sri Iyengar went to Mysore to be initiated into yoga by his brother-in-law, the well-known yoga scholar and adept, Prof. T. Krishnamacharya.
Though weak and sickly, Iyengar immersed himself totally in yoga practice, so much so that he had to discontinue his school studies at matriculation level in 1936. He suffered tortured nerves and bruised muscles but gained proficiency in a large number of yoga asanas (postures) in an incredibly short time, going on to perform a number of yoga demonstrations and successfully complete a yoga teaching assignment for faculty members and their families at Karnataka College, Dharwar. After receiving a diploma in yoga from Sri Krishnamacharya, he began teaching classes in Hubli and Dharwar in 1935.
Dr. V. B. Gokhale, civil surgeon and yoga enthusiast, arranged for him to join the Deccan Gymkhana in Pune as a yoga instructor in 1937, but that small but steady income came to an end in 1940. He began teaching yoga privately in Pune, but financial insecurity pursued him through his marriage in 1943 to Shrimati Ramamani.
In time, however, his reputation as a yoga expert and therapist grew, and more and more students sought his help. In 1948 he taught Sri J. Krishnamurthi, who described him as the best teacher; their association continued for two decades. Swami Shivananda of Rishikesh granted him the title of Yogi Raja. Distinguished pupils included Indian national leaders Sri Jayaprakash Narayan, Sri Achyutrao Patwardhan and others.
In 1952 celebrated violinist Yehudi Menuhin met Sri Iyengar, whom he describes as "my guru in yoga" and "my best violin teacher". Though Menuhin was eager to introduce the teacher who had helped him overcome numerous health problems to the West, Iyengar was only able to visit Europe two years later.
It was the start of scores of trips to all corners of the world.
In 1954 he began teaching in Bombay.
Iyengar's comprehensive Light on Yoga, published in 1966 and hailed by critics as "the best book in English on hatha yoga" and "A superb volume, unlikely to be superseded", remains the classic guide to yoga. It has been translated into seventeen Indian and foreign languages; more than three million copies have been sold.
His second book, Light on Pranayama, was published in 1981, and a third, The Art of Yoga, in 1985. The Tree Of Yoga appeared in 1988. Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali was published in 1993, and the "Light on … " series also includes Light on Astanga Yoga (1999). Yoga Wisdom and Practice was published in 2009 in English and Yaugika Manas in 2010.
Just three days after laying the foundation stone of the yoga institute in Pune in 1973, his wife suddenly died. The Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute was named in tribute to her. For four decades it has served as the world's foremost seat of yogic learning and a center of yoga pilgrimage for students and teachers from around the world. It was here that, each morning, Mr. Iyengar, known to his students as "Guruji", renewed his commitment to the practice of yoga.
Over the years, as Mr. Iyengar's teachings and travels continued, the honors accorded him multiplied, including honorary doctorates from the Medicina Alternativa Institute, affiliated with the Open International University for Complementary Medicine; the University of Mysore; the Tilak Maharashtra Vidyapeeth, Pune; the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka, and most recently from the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusadhana Samsthanam, Deemed University.
In 1991, he received the Padma Shri award from the government of India. The Padma Bhushan award followed in 2002. On Republic Day, Jan. 26, 2014, he was awarded the prestigious Padma Vibhushana, officially conferred at a formal ceremony in March in New Delhi.
In 1971, Mr. Iyengar introduced yoga in the London Educational Auditorium in the United Kingdom. In 1982, at the invitation of the Educational Department of the UK, he participated in the Festival of India in London. Two years later, he returned to London to inaugurate the lyengar Yoga Institute there, and Iyengar Yoga continues to gain adherents throughout the UK.
In 1985 he was invited by French President Jacques Chirac, then mayor of Paris, to the Festival of India in France.
His memorable lecture-demonstration at Harvard University in Boston, drew attention and devotees from across the United States, and was acclaimed as "an experience that comes rarely in one's life." The event inspired the creation of a monumental sculpture, "After Iyengar" and were followed by the First International lyengar Yoga Convention held in San Francisco.
Iyengar has been the subject of many filmed tributes. The Film and Television Institute of India produced a 22-minute tribute, Samadhi, which earned the Silver Lotus Award. The film Guruji, which depicted his heroic struggle from poverty and failure to prosperity and success was released in 1985. A follow-up to Guruji the Life of BKS Iyengar came in Leap of Faith, released on his 90th Birthday.
Additional essential publications include Body the Shrine, Yoga Thy Light, a commemorative volume published for his 60th birthday in 1978 by the Yoga Research Trust, Bombay, and a 1990 commemorative, 70 Glorious Years of Yogacharya BKS Iyengar. In 1991, Iyengar: His Life and Work was published. On his 82nd birthday the first of an eight-volume project collecting yogic knowledge and experiential wisdom, Astadala Yogamala, was released, with other volumes following every few years. Yog Sarvansathi, published in 2001, is in the Marathi language.
All over the world, Iyengar Yoga, a method which transcends caste, creed and race, and brings the benefits of yoga to people of all ages and physical capabilities, continues to grow and prosper. Hundreds of lyengar Yoga institutes, centers and studios train students and teachers in the method in all parts of the world including his native India (with centers in cities including Bangalore, Bombay, Delhi, Madras, Dehra Dun and Rishikesh), Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, France, Germany, lreland, lsrael, ltaly, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Lestho, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Republic of Czech and Slovenia, Russia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, the Ukraine, Uzbekistan Zimbabwe and others.
Mr. Iyengar received other major Indian awards including the Rajyotsava Award (1988) and the Patañjali Award of the Government of Karnataka (1990), the All India Vasistha Award (1991) and a gold medal for outstanding contribution in the field of yoga education from the All India Board of Alternative Medicine. In 2012, The Times of India included him in a list of the greatest men of India, after Mahatma Gandhi. In 2013, he received the Mother Teresa Sadbhavana Award for outstanding achievements in the field of yoga from the Indian Solidarity Council, New Delhi.
Over the years, Mr. Iyengar's birthday celebrations highlighted his ongoing mastery of his subject and the dedication of his students. In 1993, for his 75th birthday, he conducted mega-classes in the US (750 students), Canada (250 students), Bombay (300 students) and Bangalore (300 students). More than 1,050 delegates representing 33 countries attended the mega-class at the Crystal Palace in London. In December 1998, The Light on Yoga Research Trust celebrated Gurujî's 80th Birthday with a 10-day festival near Pune; more than 700 followers attended. During the celebrations, the Arsa Vidya Gurukulam conferred upon him the title of Arsa-Kula-Sresthah for his achievements in introducing yoga all over the world using innovative teaching methods without compromising its classical form. Similar celebrations marked his 90th birthday and his 95th, in January of 2014.
In 1999, the Prime Minister of India, His Excellency Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, visited the Pune Institute in its Silver Jubilee year. The Prime Minister was shown a demonstration of yoga ãsanas, and Mr. Iyengar explained the development of yoga as therapy for various ailments as well as the innovative the use of props which distinguishes the method.
Sri Iyengar was included in many national, Asian and international lists and directories of prominent personalities and achievers. Among them are the International Directory of Distinguished Leadership, 500 Leaders of Influence of the Twentieth Century, the Dictionary of International Biography and 2000 Outstanding People of the Twentieth Century. A 2008 story named him one of India's "Influentials," the people who impact the country, calling him an "ageless wonder. If the world does Pranayama [ yogic breathing ] today, the credit goes to him." It continued: "His long life is proof of the restorative effects of yoga."
In 2011, Guruji met His Holiness the Dalai Lama for a discussion moderated by Shi. Rajiv Mehrotra; the DVD Path to Happiness records this historic occasion.
On the eve of the ceremony of being awarded the Padma Vibhushan in 2014, Guruji was found in the practice hall of his Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute where he continued to practice daily and, surrounded by his students, to teach and guide the coming generations in yoga. It is these many many teachers and practitioners of yoga who mourn his loss and commit themselves to keeping alive his bright, vibrant legacy of yoga.

Check out my latest blog post from my trip to Jakarta:
Intertwining Elements, Kosas, Chakras and Vayus, plus Baby Back Bends and Side Stretch
A lot was covered in my four day workshop in Jakarta. In the first four classes we explored the elements and koshas, which included standing poses (anamayer kosa, earth), jumpings (pranamaya kosa, water), twists and backbends on the ropes (element of fire, manomaya kosa), and inversions and pranayama (vignaomaya kosa, air and anandamaya kosa, ether)…
Congratulations to the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York on 25 years of bringing the teachings of BKS Iyengar to the city. Read IYAGNY director James Murphy's letter, and see photos from the celebration here.
I've started a new online monthly yoga series for 2012. Click here to get started and be sure to check back each month.
Here’s a sneak preview of the last of the four Yoga Rahasya covers that I designed this year. The front cover depicts Patanjali. I painted it many years ago as background material for my animated short Yoga Yantra. As it turned out, I did not take Yoga Yantra to complete color production, so this painting was never used. I’m happy now that it’s found a good home.
I took this photo, used on the back cover of Yoga Rahasya, in my garden in New York.

enLIGHTened. How I Lost 40 Pounds with a Yoga Mat, Fresh Pineapples, and a Beagle-Pointer. Jessica Berger Gross. Illustrations by Bobby Clennell.
Little did I guess when I first met Jessica in my prenatal class, that the journey leading to her pregnancy had been so cathartic and so special.
In this book Jessica tells the tale of that journey that took her from unhappiness and out of control eating to self- acceptance, health and personal peace. After years of struggling with fluctuating weight, she took her first yoga class and her world changed.
Never preachy, Jessica has walked the walk, and therein lays the power of this personal memoir. She skillfully and wittily weaves stories of her own personal struggles, sound information, recipes, and yoga poses into a rich and extremely readable commentary. Into this mix I was pleased to have contributed the yoga illustrations.
All women will recognize something of themselves in this inspiring and compassionate book.

Health experts and doctors have been extolling the benefits of exercise and a sensible diet for many years now, but it’s not so easy to process the mountain of information out there or to follow up on it. Now Dr. Frank Lipman in his new book, Spent: End Exhaustion and Feel Great Again, has a way of getting you to do it. Dr. Lipman, whose spirit and wisdom are grounded in thirty years of medical practice inspires and encourages us to stay on track. His easy to follow 6-week program is designed to reunite our individual patterns of behavior with the pulses and rhythms of nature.
One of the biggest issues that people face in our fast moving society is exhaustion. We eat on the run in order to keep up our busy schedule. We also suffer from anxiety, information overload and physical disconnect. Dr. Lipman with his personal blend of Western and alternative medicine presents a wealth of practical advice on staying healthy and balanced in a not too healthy world. When he talks about the bad effects of sugar prevalent in much of our breakfast foods, he pulls no punches. “No sugar means no pancakes, French toast, bagels, muffins, most cereals, or toast”. He offers a list of tasty smoothies and other alternatives for this the most important meal of the day.
As well as diet Dr. Lipman offers cutting edge information on such diverse subjects as supplements, sleep, music and restorative yoga. Listed are the toxic ingredients contained in cosmetics and other every day items that most of us have in our bathrooms. Who knew that these substances, banned in Europe are still being used in most products sold in the U.S?
This is a must have book for anyone interested in restoring health, balance and sanity to their frazzled life.
