The Wisdom of Iyengar Yoga project presents the essential teachings of BKS, Geeta & Prashant Iyengar. It is an international volunteer effort headed up by Eddy Marks & Mary Obendorfer which operates under the auspices of RIMYI and with the blessings of the Iyengars. 100% of the money from the sale of materials goes directly to the Iyengars. All projects are approved by the Iyengars. Read Guruji's letter about the Wisdom project.
