the man, yoga, and the student's journey

a film from award winning director

Jake Clennell

“The idea was just to beat him up, not kill him.”


Where does yoga intersect with murder? Child prostitution? Alcoholism, blindness and debilitating illness? Built around compelling and unique verité footage of one of the world’s most influential spiritual leaders of the modern era, IYENGAR is both an intimate look at B.K.S. Iyengar's personal yoga practice, and an exploration of how his students—an orphan, a priest, a murderer—use yoga to transform their lives.


Award winning filmmaker Jake Clennell brings a scrupulously nonjudgmental eye to yoga and rarely seen aspects of life in India.
