Belur Krishnamachar Sundaraya Iyengar was born in a small village, located in the state of Karnataka, South India. Suffering from poor health and poverty, he moved to Mysore after the death of his father, and lived there with his sister. His brother in law, Krishnamacharya, was a Yoga scolar who taught the Maharaja family. He became his teacher. In his early 20s, Mr. Iyengar moved to Pune in the state of Maharashtra. He married Ramamani and they raised 6 children. From that place he spread his abundant knowledge to milions of students around the world.
