Georg is a Danish cellist who teaches at the Sydney University Conservatorium of Music. He took the majority of the photos for Guruji BKS Iyengar and his institute in the '70s, which was compiled by Julia Pedersen.
A beautifully produced book which will bring back fond memories for
many and open the eyes of many others. The black and white photos
are incredibly special, and it is wonderful to see Guruji’s smiling
face in so many of them. Very much like a cactus fruit, Guruji was
prickly on the outside but sweet and delicious on the inside. The
photos bring out the energy, vitality, and passion of Guruji so
clearly, and show his dedication to the art of yoga. The pictures
are enhanced by the written memories of those who have contributed
and shared their experiences of being taught by such a great yoga
master. Their personal insights and honesty of their experiences
were often very touching to read. I found that the initials at the
end, meant I had to keep going back to find out who they were!
Nevertheless, I would recommend this book to all Iyengar yogis
throughout the world. For those who did meet him, to remind them of
his expert teaching, and for those who never got the chance to meet
him, to show exactly what he was like. Wendy Haring, Chair of
