Creating a thriving community around yoga

B K S Iyengar, or Guruji as we fondly called him, was the founder of Iyengar Yoga and is considered one of the foremost yoga teachers in the world. He came from a very humble background and wanted to do something for the community in Kolar. But he knew aid only went so far. His vision was to make the community self-sustaining, something that resonated with our beliefs at SLK. So, in 2013, we laid the foundations of the Bellur Iyengar Yoga Center, and it was completed in 2015. The center has the capacity to host 200 people, accommodate 50, and holds a fully furnished kitchen and dining hall. The kids of the community who practice yoga at the center get free education up to college. Today, it is a thriving center for yogic practices taught by international yoga teachers and the cornerstone of a self-sustaining community in Bellur.
