Hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" and considered to be one of the most important masters in the world, B.K.S. Iyengar is credited with bringing the ancient art of yoga to the modern masses.
 
Iyengar Yoga is universally respected, practiced worldwide and credited by multitudes as life-transforming, but because its founder B. K. S. Iyengar is famously reclusive, little is known about the man who invented this powerful practice, until now! Thanks to exclusive, intimate access to this legendary yogi, Jake Clennell's documentary Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, The Student’s Journey is able to showcase the profound spirituality embedded in his practice. Born in Southern India 100 years ago, the legendary guru is the founder of Iyengar Yoga, a form of Hatha known for its rigorous mental and spiritual focus. Filmed before he passed away in 2014, this intimate portrait centres on Iyengar's legacy and teachings, while illuminating the life-changing holistic methods at the core of his philosophy. Whether you're a seasoned devotee or simply looking for self-care motivation, this profound film is bound to steer you on the path to mindfulness. (USA & India, 2018, 107 Mins, NR, English | Dir.
