BKS Iyengar practising at RIMYI – photographs by Silvia Prescott

It is one year since the death of Silvia Prescott. Silvia was one of the teachers who played a key role in finding a site for the Iyengar Yoga Institute to and helped raise the money to make it possible. She was a teacher to many of the teachers currently teaching at the Institute and was a talented photographer, documenting her trips to Pune and the yoga conferences she attended.

 

The photographs here were donated by Silvia to the archive at IYIMV.  They were taken in January 1983 at RIMYI in Pune, India when BKS Iyengar was 64 years old.
