happy 90th guru-ji!
here's the invitation:
Guruji (B.K.S. Iyengar) turns 90 on Sunday, December 14.
Help us celebrate 90 glorious years with 108 Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) and chanting at the institute.
In Geeta Iyengar's words: "The sun-salutation is a part of daily religious prayer, which comes from time immemorial. Every one, along with offerings and prayers, saluted the sun, since Surya, the Sun God has a tremendous solar energy, which is a vital need for mankind."
Guruji's work has had an impact on nearly everyone practicing yoga in the world today - come help us celebrate his tremendous contributions to our lives!
