I wanted everyone to experience Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana as the Iyengar community are planning on naming a pose after BKS Iyengar to commemorate what would have been his 100th birthday on 14th December 2018 click here to learn more

Many of us yogis think Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana is an excellent choice as Mr Iyengar created this pose. It didn’t exist in classical yoga literature before him! Although there are many other poses suggested too. Click on the link above to find out more and say which pose you think should be named in honour of Mr Iyengar’s lifetime contribution to yoga
