Thanks to an invitation from the Iyengar Yoga Teacher Patricia Walden to lecture on Yoga Philosophy, Edwin was introduced to the Iyengar community. His book “The Yoga Sūtras Of Patañjali” (2009) is dedicated to her, the entire Iyengar Yoga Community and to Guruji himself ‘for his enormous contribution to the well-being of humanity…’. B. K. S.
