Today would have been Master Yogi BKS Iyengar’s 97th birthday, and Google is modifying its logo on today’s homepage to celebrate the life and times of a man who was instrumental in bringing yoga to the West.

Iyengar was known for standing on his head for nearly an hour, even when he was well over 80 years of age. He devised yoga poses, or asanas, that yoga enthusiasts all over the world now copy and practice, and some of his yoga techniques are said to have extended as far as the Antarctica.

Some of his ardent followers include Aldous Huxley, Sachin Tendulkar, and Queen Elizabeth of Belgium.

Iyengar Yoga or styles he developed were marked by great body control and spiritual discipline, and he was a master yogi to many who adore his ways and his meditation styles among other techniques he designed to maintain excellent body and mind health.

Kevin Laughlin of Google exploited some of Iyengar’s styles and poses to characterize Google’s logo on today’s homepage, and this simple act will help perpetuate the memory of a man who contributed a lot to yoga practice in the West and beyond.
