On the momentous occasion of Guruji's birth centenary, Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI), Light on Yoga Research Trust (LOYRT) - Mumbai, and Different Strokes Communications are jointly embarking on a project to record students’ impressions on the impact that Guruji has had on their lives. This will be a purely crowdsourced project, where each and every one of us will have a chance to become a filmmaker and have our unique voice reach out towards our Iyengar Yoga family worldwide!

This project will be made up of a collection of video submissions from Iyengar Yoga practitioners worldwide detailing how Guruji and his legacy has impacted their lives. From these submissions, a documentary will be made. Visit for all of the details.

You are all invited and encouraged to participate in this beautiful initiative!

All you need to do is take a few minutes to record a short video and then, follow the directions on the website to upload it. Deadline for submissions is January 31st, 2018.

In addition to submitting your own video, there are several other ways you can support the development of this documentary:

  • Display the attached poster at your studio.
  • Email the attached poster to your students.
  • Post it on social media.
  • Ask one student a week over the next little while, if you could help them to film a submission.
  • Celebrate Guruji's birthday on December 14th by hosting a tribute where many people come together and help each other film little video clips using their phones.
  • Other ideas????

We know that our beloved Guruji, both in person and through his legacy, has profoundly impacted so many. We hope you will contribute your personal story to this meaningful project.
