Description - The Yoga Master by Kofi Busia

In fifty essays, stories, and interviews, well-known contributors from the international yoga world celebrate the work of yoga pioneer B K S Iyengar. A revered Indian yoga master, Iyengar has been the single most influential person in spreading the practice of yoga throughout the world. B K S Iyengar was recognized in "TIME" magazine's 2004 list of the 100 most powerful and influential people on the planet. Compiled and introduced by Kofi Busia, one of the most dedicated and internationally renowned of Iyengar's students, the contributions represent an internationally diverse group of Iyengar yoga teachers as well as several celebrities who have been deeply touched by Iyengar's teachings. This is the only book on the life and work of Iyengar, as seen through the eyes of friends and senior students. It brings a deep understanding of the man as well as his unique approach to yoga. The contributors address the physical practice of yoga, yoga philosophy, and how yoga affects one's life, and it includes anecdotes about time spent with Iyengar. The publication of the book is timed with a conference celebrating Mr Iyengar's life and work: in July 2007, the Yogacharya Festival, a conference in honour of the life and work of B K S Iyengar, will be held in Santa Clara, California. The weeklong festival is expected to draw over 2,000 participants.
