Yoga – B.K.S. Iyengar

Ein wenig mehr Flexibilität schadet nicht und hält gesund.

Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar (1918 – 2014), better known as B.K.S. Iyengar, was the founder of the style of yoga known as „Iyengar Yoga“ and was considered one of the foremost yoga teachers in the world.

He was the author of many books on yoga practice and philosophy including Light on Yoga,Light on Pranayama, Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Light on Life. Iyengar was one of the earliest students of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who is often referred to as „the father of modern yoga“.

He has been credited with popularizing yoga, first in India and then around the world. The Indian government awarded Iyengar the Padma Shri in 1991, the Padma Bhushan in 2002 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2014. In 2004, Iyengar was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.

2013 zeichnete Ryan Humphrey ein Crossover zwischen Akira von Katsuhiro Otomo und den Simpsons von Matt Groening das er Bartkira taufte.

Auf Basis dieser schon abstrusen Idee verkündete der Zeichner James Humphrey in diesem Stil die komplette Akira Story mit über 2000 Seiten mit Simpsons Charakteren im Verbund mit vielen anderen Indie Comic Zeichnern nachzeichen zu wollen. Über 400 Künstler nahmen sich so 5 Seiten vor und schufen Bartkira.

Inzwischen besteht Bartkira aus 6 Bänden. 

Und was gibt es zu sagen? Es ist ein visuelles Fest!

Hier kannst du die kompletten Bände lesen: Bartkira
