Leap of Faith

Leap of Faith is the story of Yogacharya B.K.S Iyengar’s life. He is a yogi whose name is synchronous with precision and perfection in yoga. Leap of Faith is a saga of courage and faith, of chance meetings and chosen paths, of perseverance in the face of insurmountable hurdles, of the triumph of the human spirit and of his union (yoga) with the divine consciousness.
