LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, June 10, 2001: Devotees watch and listen intently to this middle-aged woman from India. Geeta S. Iyengar, the world's leading female yoga teacher, challenges them to drop their lingering doubts and tap their inner strength to achieve proper alignment of various yoga postures developed by her father, BKS Iyengar. At the age of nine she suffered a kidney disease that left her breathless and occasionally unconscious. Her father admonished her to embrace yoga and within months she began to feel better. Yogini Iyengar is pleased by the growing recognition that greets both yoga and her own teaching. After four decades as a student and assistant to her father, she has increasingly moved into the forefront as the director of the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute established by her father a quarter of a century ago in Pune.
