There is an international movement to honor Yogācārya B.K.S. Iyengar, in the way sages of the past have been honored, through naming a pose after him. Traditionally these poses were named after the sage's first name, such as the twisting Marīchyāsanas named for Sage Marīchi or Sage Vasistha, for Vasisthāsana (an arm balancing asana). The first two initials of his name stand for "Bellur" the small Indian village where he was born, and Krishnamachar, his father's name... S. is for Sundararāja. There are many ways to practice this asana, in Iyengar yoga classes, it is first introduced with the help of the chair. There are efforts to rename this āsana, Dwi Pāda Viparita Dandāsana (two-legged inverted staff pose) in honor of beloved Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar, “Sundararājāsana”. Join in the efforts here by signing the petition.
