Every year the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York holds a “Yogathon” in order to raise money to support the community of teachers and students who are part of the association.
The fundraising event started out in 2005 when BKS Iyengar travelled to the USA for the last time, as part of his book tour for Light on Life. The Yogathon was held to raise money and have a performance for Guruji: more than 3,000 people gathered to meditate and practice with BKS Iyengar.
This year, the yogathon paid tribute to Theresa Rowland, who was Lou’s teacher for many years, and passed away a few years ago.
Here is the video of this year’s yogathon which took place on June 5th 2022. There are many fun skits and performances to watch:
