Video: Interview with B.K.S Iyengar

In the Yoga Makaranda, Sri T. Krishnamacharya advocates practicing yoga on a tiger skin. Clearly, I do not think this is realistic or recommended nowadays, but there is an analogy about a tiger that I find helpful when thinking about asana practice.

A stripe of a tiger is not the whole tiger, but the whole tiger is inherent in its stripes.

Iyengar says something similar in this interview. 1 min 09 secs – Everything is inherent [in the asana].
